    My memories are only of a child but I remember Uncle Einar to be the kindest and sweetest man, I will forever remember how tender he treated us when we were kids coming to the big city to visit our Grandma and his family. We are sorry for your loss, and know that our thoughts are with the family as they celebrate his life today.
