    I was so very sorry to hear of the sad news. Although I didn’t know Aimo personally, I know his lovely daughter Anita and the deep love and care she has for her dad. I know this is a difficult time but he is now in a peaceful place without pain and can look down on his family and know how much he was loved. May time for you all, bring healing to allow more smiles than tears.

    Aimo & Raija have been our neighbors for over 15 years. Aimo was always out working in the yard and not just his own. He was always there to lend a hand. He was a fixture in our neighborhood in his retirement years. Even though the last few years had been tough with his health we will never forget his kindness. Aimo we miss seeing you ski in the winter, walking the dog in the summer and that friendly smile you always had. Rest in peace now that you are closer to our lord and check in on my Dad he is always up for a good chat!

    Syksyn saapuessa,
    voimien loppuessa,
    enkelin siipi kosketti,
    luo Taivaan Isän johdatti.
    Väistyi vaivat, saapui rauha,
    uni kaunis ikuinen.

    Aimo Korhosen muistoa kuunioittaen,
    otamme osaa suruunne.

    Hyvät Aimo Korhosen omaiset.
    Otamme osaa suruunne.

    Saimme Vancouveriin viestin Aimon maallisen vaelluksen loppumisesta. Se tuotti surua jonka keskellä on suuri lohdutus, siitä että Aimo oli tehnyt ratkaisun Jumalan puoleen jo nuorena miehenä Suomessa. Olkoon lohdutuksen Jumala kanssanne rakkaat Aimon sukulaiset. Eero ja Josephiina Sorila
