NPayne's dad (who died when NPayne was one year old)

If I could talk to someone who has already passed away that I miss, it would be....
my dad (who died in 2005), I would love to introduce Elliot to him....she is a lot like him, but of course he already knows that :)!

slow it down a little

If I could have one frivelous purchase, it would be....
a lakehouse for my family but mainly for NPayne to enjoy
