Today my father passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 92. As of four days ago, he had stopped eating and drinking. My sisters and I are deeply saddened by his passing and at the same time, we are relieved that he did not suffer as his life came to an end.
I found a couple of photos that I wanted to post here. The first one was taken at my parent's wedding in 1952 and the bottom photo of my dad was taken earlier this year. I especially like this one because it captured him with a smile.
My sisters and I are now orphans. Funny, no matter how old we were, to our parents we were still "the children" and I guess we thought of ourselves that way too.
In the spring, M and I will take our father's ashes overseas to be buried along side other family members in his native Kuusalu, Estonia.
Rest in peace, dear Papa.
Your loving daughters,
Ene, Inga and Milvi
