Mr. B is the 4th generation born in Hawaii of Portuguese descent. His dad was a career police officer in Hilo, Hawaii. He was an amazing carpenter and was such a softie at heart. My husband and his brother and sisters have so many stories to tell. :o) I'll have to have him write some of them down. His mom was a seamstress and made their matching outfits... I love it!
His mom's dad (Voovoo~Portuguese for Grandpa) is one of 22 children! None of them were multiple births! He lived many years in Hawaii, but eventually moved to San Luis Obispo, California. I met him right after Mr. B and I got married and stopped to visit him and Grandma Florence on our way to Hawaii. He was an amazing gardener. I remember him smoking his pipes and making us a pot roast. (oh another thing I found amazing-even as he got older, his hair stayed dark, with just a little gray in his moustache.)
