R.I.P. Adolf

August 28, 2012

Johan Adolf Juto died this morning, 89 years old. He was my dad’s uncle and those of you who have followed my blog for a long time may remember the pictures from his house where he lived until 1990. They are all collected in this flickr set. I have loved documenting his house and I have many amazing memories from my childhood with Adolf. The picture above is from when we met the last time, Summer 2010.

    We all know how much this man meant to you… it is hard to say simply sorry, since that does not convey enough. We will all be thinking of you Sandra, and the photos you have shared, all so beautifully evocative.
