Reflections from Max — 4 Comments

  1. My condolences to the family. I’d followed Niilo’s saga for some years, after the serious accident to his wife, to his gradual decline with Alzeheimer’s and getting notes from the family and from Harry Siitonen, a fellow Finn. We have lost a very good man – and one surrounded by a caring and loving family.

  2. So surullinen (sad in Finnish) to see this great friend, comrade, and my virtual brother gone to the Finnish Tuonela (the abode of the deceased) in the epic Kalevala. Hyvästi, toveri, Harry Siitonen, Berkeley,CA

  3. A beautiful way to describe a wonderful man. I haven’t seen him 15 years but I think of him, and Joan, often. I will be thinking of you and the rest of the Koponens tomorrow. Niilo was one of the greats and how lucky are we to have known him?!
