My older brother Steven has been living in Thailand since 2017. I was called by the Thai Embassy to tell me he passed away on Christmas Day. It has been a real emotional rollercoaster for us dealing with trying to settle his estate, funeral and having his belongings and ashes returned to us in Maine. This morning the funeral home in Bangkok sent me beautiful pictures of his funeral. So, having this particular image chosen as POTD really means a lot to me. Moose Pond, Bridgton Maine.
