The plans for my Mother’s burial have been finalized. A brief graveside service will be held on Friday 05 May 2017 at 1:00pm at the Whaletown Cemetery. Matti and I would like to invite anyone who wishes to attend to meet us at the cemetery. Matti and I will be adding a flower, leaf or small leafy branch onto the casket at the cemetery. I encourage any of Mom and Matti’s friends to do the same if they are so inclined.

In lieu of flowers of the florist kind, Matti and I request that you make a donation to the Whaletown Cemetery Fund. The volunteers that run the cemetery provide a wonderful service for the people in Whaletown. Contact Ron Kroeker - Cemetery Manager.

While Matti is at the Campbell River Hospital for a brief stay I’d like to encourage friends that come into Campbell River during the next few days to stop by and say hello.

Mark and I had hoped to attend your Mom's graveside service, but have to be in CR that day.

Will see Matti again while in CR and thank you for being such a support to your Mom and Matti through the years.

Our love to you and family.
