Happy Father's Day 2013

The Portuguese Tribune (Tribuna Portuguesa) recently published a beautifully written article about my father. He was once an artistic contributor to the Tribune and even designed their logo, which was on the cover of the publication for many, many years. It is a huge honor that they continue to remember him almost 20 years after his passing. I couldn't think of a better Father's Day gift.

19 Year Anniversary of Duarte's Passing

I realized that I don't have any photos of my father's "headstone" which is actually inside of a small chapel. The lighting was not good, but I did get a photo with my phone. I will add better photos in the future.

Over the past 20 hours or so, my wife and I had food poisoning and have been so sick we can barely move. It was like torture. I can't even image how hard the cancer must have been on my father or how he was able to cheer everyone up and have a positive outlook even in the most painful months of his life.

Dad, I'm proud of everything you have done and you are definitely missed by everyone that knew you.
