Dear Aunt Eira and Cousins Markku, Juhani, Leila and Michael,

We are thinking of you all at this sad time. We all miss our uncle Yka and all the times we gathered together at your home in Willowdale. I remember Uncle Yka's good humour and I know he was a good man and father. I am sure that he has already been welcomed by my parents.

With love,
Risto

Our deepest condolences to Eira and the entire family. Between Yrjo and Eira’s cottage and ours next door there was always something exciting going on ... building projects, yard work, water activities and of course fishing. He was a great fisherman. We’ll miss seeing him at the cottage.
Sincerely, Teija Vakkuri & Rod MacInnes

Uncle George really liked his fishing especially when coming north to Geraldton.
