On the anniversary of her father’s death, Rena Sofer (Quinn, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) honored his memory with an absolutely beautiful remembrance of Rabbi Martin Sofer. She shared her heartfelt words along with a photo of a painting that her daughter, Rosabel, did of her grandfather.
“Six years ago today I lost my amazing father to cancer,” Sofer wrote. “He was the most special man in the world, especially to me. He raised my brother and I single-handedly from the time we were toddlers and he was there for us every day of our lives with a wealth of unconditional love and support. He was our father, our rabbi, our teacher, and our best friend in the world.
“For the last 13 years of his life,” she continued, “he lived with my brother and me which was the greatest gift in the world to us. From the day he was diagnosed to the day he died, we — my whole tiny family — never left his side. When he died, at home, he died in all of our arms and that was the last gift he gave all of us.”
Back in February of this year, Sofer shared an old photo of her and her father that looks like it was taken around the time of her run as Lois on GENERAL HOSPITAL in the mid-'90s. “Me and my daddy,” she posted. “I miss him so much!”
A father’s love is forever, and the impact that Martin Sofer had on his family’s lives will never be forgotten. “I miss him every day and I am who I am today because of him,” the actress declared. “Thank you, Daddy. Rabbi Martin Sofer. The greatest man I have ever known.”
Martin left an amazing legacy in his family and they will continue to keep his memory alive for future generations.
