This Post Is Dedicated To My Father

My father a WWII veteran lived until he was almost 90 years old, and wanted to live as long as possible , and just fade away, without any ceremonies.

He said, if you just knew how poor we were, only getting one present or gift for Christmas, but we were HAPPY!

My father, not at all a big athlete guy,but quite handsome, had never ridden a horse until he was 70 years old, and without a single fear rode a skittish race horse!

He was a doctor, his main interest, otherwise he had been a bumblebee scientist. He could every bumblebee species, and told me when I was a child,  which bumblebees were most aggressive or not. He had detected already between WW1 and WW2 in Estonia, that  Buff-tailed Bumblebees wereleast aggressive to sting humans. Urumesilane in Estonian and Stor Jordhumla in Swedish.
