I am finally back home. After a week spent in Arizona we got the call on Easter Sunday that my husband's father had passed away.
We flew out there and spent a very bittersweet week with his family. Most of our kids were also able to be there.
My father-in-law lived 85 years. He left school in the third grade to help support his family. At age 15 he went to work at my husband's mother's farm where he met her. They were married for 63 years. They both spent their life working hard and raising their family.
They lived most of their life on the west coast.
He was a master craftsman and taught his boys many things. His love of perfection will be carried on in my husband.
My father-in-law will be missed greatly.
