I remember my sister (Aku mengenang kakak-ku)
When a few days ago I opened a file on a long forgotten flash disk in a drawer I found files of pictures of my elder sister Milly. She is not with us anymore because she passed away in 1996 when we were on a boat traveling from Biak to Serui. The reason of our travel was the SSMS’96 (Sarasehan Syukuran Makassar Serui 1996}. About the SSMS’96I have reported elsewhere and try to find the appropriate address later.
I want to show you pictures of her happy life with her husband Louky and her family life in the mid 1970’s.
I always thank God for having given me many years to live with these two persons as sister and brother in law ……
They were a balanced couple and had 7 (yes, seven) kids. They were rich in everything only not in money. Their house was always full of friends and family members either close or distant, old or young. The pictures that I show here are proof of it.
In the background of the pictures one can see the swimming pool often crowded with kids jumping into it.
Wooooow, do I see it clearly? My Mom smoking?????? It can not be!!!
Sometimes they visit the Ancol either being invited or having a rent a cottage overthere.
Whilst the kids are enjoying themselves in the pool.
Sometimes Milly and Louky visit the bungalow of my mother in law in Cipanas, where they enjoy a small cardgame with the kids.
And if people ask me where I got these pictures from I will answer: from an old album that was given to me after Milly passed away and I thank Rido for it.
