    Uncle Jim and Larry, I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. Even thou I didn’t know your mother from what I read in the Newspaper up here in Calumet. It sounds like she was a loving and caring person. Working in the hospitals.It takes a very special person to do that. I myself worked in a Home for the Aged for 12 years. And those years were the best years of my life. Now God has one of His Children home in heaven with Him and I believe we all will meet again. May God be with you at this time. I will keep you in my Prayers. Larry if you would like to contact me I will be putting my email address in with this note. Love, Laura (Hiltunen) Heikkila and family
