My papa immigrated to America from Ireland. My papa came over in 1963 by plane and he only had one small suitcase. He was 19 years of age. The reason my papa came over was for a better life. He was the first in his family to come over . He worked in a box shop and he stayed with family menbers. Now I told you the story of my papa, what's yours papa story?
