Happy Birthday Sanna

Today would have been Sanna’s 52nd birthday. Mike & Chenga chose today to plant the pussywillow bush that they had planned with Sanna. Another bigger similar bush was on her exercise/walking route and she always stopped to admire that one. In spite of her abulia and all the other problems, Sanna had such a remarkable determination to get out and walk and regain her physical strength. I find this to be a continuing inspiration. -Britta


Mike writes:

One of Sanna’s favorite trees was a pussy willow bush that grew on a property that bordered the Sunset Park where she walked whenever she had the chance. Once, when it bloomed, she said that the pussy willow bud was the 2nd softest thing in the world, the underbelly of a Rottweiler puppy being the softest.

Ithaca Dec 6 memorial & reception photos

In case you missed it, here are a few photos from the memorial and reception. So many people came to the memorial that the hallway/entrance was crowded. The reception was also packed – and the food was excellent. I didn’t get a chance to take many photos till the end of the evening.
