My Daddy!

November 2, 2021

Otis Pippins was the most loving, giving, humble,

trustworthy, upstanding man you would ever want to meet.

To know him was to love him.

When you think of him, you can only smile!

He left impressions wherever went and to whoever he met.

My daddy was loved by many, and this world has lost a true “Superhero.”

That’s what he was to me and yet, I was what he would refer to me as “his boss.” LOL

Who am I gonna boss around now?

Daddy you’ll be greatly missed!

Until our lives cross paths again….Rest Up My King

Love Forever, Rosalynn
