I got the call at 4 a.m. that Dad had passed away. He was in his 100th year and just 3 months away from his birthday. As per his wishes there won't be a funeral and burial will take place when the out of state family members are available.
This is my favorite photo of my dad. It was taken around 1950. That was about the time that he got into photography seriously, developing and printing his own photos.
