In Mourning


My Father-in-law, a wonderful human being has left this earth, and begun his journey to "another" world.

He loved nature, and found particular joy for many years, visiting a tundra swan sanctuary, where migrating swans stopped to rest, and fuel up for their voyage afar.
 
It is now his time to rest.
 
We love you dad, as our hearts are breaking, we wish you safe passage.
 
RIP dear man.
