A letter on its own is not sufficient, I'm afraid. There is a form with appropriate wording that your father would have to sign and which would then be lodged at the Probate Registry when you or one of your siblings applied for Letters of Administration.
(Just ot confirm- Letters of Administration is the document you or your sisters have to obtain before dealing with hte Estate. A Power of Atorney is only valid during someone's lifetime)
