Ari VainionpaaHeartfelt sympathy to the whole Hietalahti family. Kathy was a thoughtful, kind and amazingly strong woman who had a great sense of humor and was always a pleasure to be around. Jarmo did well to pick her as his partner. She will be missed of course, but I am sure that her spirit will live on through her children, grandchildren and friends. My thoughts are also with my cousin Jarmo who is one of the kindest and least selfish men who I have had the pleasure of knowing. With love and sympathy, Ari
