My Time With Papa by Shauntae Spaulding

Walk down memory lane and recapture the memories of lost loved ones from the imagination of a young girl.

This is a loving story about a little girl who lost her Papa and finds a way to remember all the wonderful memories she had of him that she will cherish forever.

After losing my stepfather May 2019, I felt compelled to keep his memory alive. I prayed and prayed and wondered how I could do that. It was then laid on my heart to write this story. Through my grief I was able to capture the essence of who my stepfather was and the joy he brought to everyone. He loved the St. Louis Cardinals, he was in the U.S Air Force and he LOVED motorcyles. My illustrator did such an amazing job drawing his likeness. It’s uncanny!!!

This book is so SPECIAL to me because it’s a lasting memory that my family will have especially his granddaughter who is the little girl in the book. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to get to know the man we all loved but my prayer is that when she gets older, she will know how much he loved her by the pages of this book!

If you or someone you know has lost a loved one, I hope you will find comfort in reading this book and knowing that our loved ones may not be here physically but they will ALWAYS be with us in our dreams 💚
