June 16th, 1963 was Father's Day. It was also the day the Borba family immigrated from Terceira, Azores to the United States of America.
We celebrated that event today. June 16th, 2013 - Father's Day.
It truly has been a privilege to be a part of this family... and I was honored to host the celebration of this wonderful event. The family of 8 has grown tremendously in those 50 years... and although not all of them could attend, the 6 children that came across on that date were all here.
And the stories continue as I write this post.
All of them have since become US Citizens, owned business and raised their families with the same work ethic they learned in "the old country." You will be the third generation of this family and a lot will be expected from you. Don't ever take them for granted.
