Papa was known as a father to the fatherless as well as his 7 beautiful children. I know when Aaron first brought me home to meet the family, Armand (Papa) embraced me with such fatherly love and compassion that I felt at home immediately. Having recently lost my own father, Armand filled that hole in my heart and helped me in so many ways to grow as an individual, and over the past 14 years as a wife and mother to 4 of his grandchildren. He had such a sensitivity and deep respect for all life that shown bright to all who knew him.
The last time I saw him, over Thanksgiving, he shared with me stories of love and friendship and non-judgement that brought him to tears. It is that purity of heart and compassion that Papa carried that made him so special and so blessed. He was a great blessing to all who knew him, and will miss him terribly. Memory Eternal Papa.
Love always, Daughter Robin
