Death Of a Relative

My papaw died twenty-five years ago today.

It's been a quarter of a century since he passed away.

When he took a new medication, he became sick.

When Papaw took it, he turned out to be allergic.

If it hadn't been for Papaw, I wouldn't exist.

He died a long time ago and he's still missed.
