Papa was an amazing listener and the best client for his hairdresser-grandchildren! He never failed to let me blow out his match at he lit his pipe, even though he knew I would try to blow it out before he even lit it since I wanted him to quit smoking! In the words of Papa, I now will tell him...Be a good boy Papa. I'll see you soon. Love, Beth
