In Loving Memory

Over the past few months, she had been getting weaker and weaker. Last night, she passed peacefully, as if just going to sleep. She always loved philosophizing about the world, the ways of the universe and the great beyond, so now she will have all of her questions answered.

She is survived by her sister, niece, nephew-in-law and grand-niece (me).

“Vediet mani dziedādami, Nevediet raudādami; Lai iet mana dvēselīte, Pie Dieviņa dziedādama.”

Latvian folksong (daina): “Escort me while singing, not while crying; May my soul go, to God while singing.”
