I am so sorry to hear of the death of your Mom and grandmother. Elly and Bill would come into the Daily Paper coffee shop together here on Cape Cod and she would have a big smile. Your Dad helped my father with odds and ends around his house as he grew older (he was Finnish as well). They both were wonderful people and I am sad to hear of their passing. My condolences to all of you.
