It’s with great sadness to say that my father-in-law has passed away. He was always working with his hands. He had beautiful gardens that attracted the most musical birds to the yard. He grew the biggest kale I have ever seen or seen since – it was delicious! He grew figs, fruit, vegetables and had pretty colorful plants and flowers around the home that he and my mother-in-law cultivated and cared for.
It’s always the little things that you miss when your “family landscape” starts to change. As I was going through just some of my collection of pictures – I realize I miss when the girls were young and we would all gather at my in-laws on Christmas Eve Evening. The girls would be full of wonder, they would hear the Santa bells from outside, some ran to the window to look out and some would run and hide! My father-in-law loved the holidays, I would catch glimpses of him watching the girls dance around the house as he smiled. He would be trying to tell them to “settle down” with his deep Portuguese accent but would tease them to get them running around again.
My father-in-law Henrique Camacho (AKA Pai, avo), will be truly missed by his familia XO
