To Jeri and family, We were so saddened to hear of the unexpected passing of your father, mother and brother. We will remember with fondness Uncle Eddie and Aunt Raedell's visits to Maine. My mother, the youngest of the 13 Nurmi children, had a special place in her heart for your parents. May the joyful memories you shared together bring you peace and comfort during this very difficult time. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Uncle Eddie I remember you mostly from my childhood years. You did not come to Connecticut ofter, however we managed to be with you at the huge family reunions, it seems like in the distant past. Now you will join the countless brothers and sisters that went to be with Jesus before you. My Condolences to my whole family.

It is hard to believe that it has almost been a year. I can still remember going out to grandpa and grandma's house with my boys, I remember as soon as we would walk into the house grandpa would always have a big smile on his face. He was always happy to see his grandkids and great grandkids and would do anything for them. It makes me sad to think about him not being here on my boy’s birthday and with the Holidays coming. I know that he is looking down on his grandkids and great grandkids watching over them and is smiling every time they do something and is proud of them for being able to hold it together as best as they can. I will do my best to make sure that my boys remember everything that their great grandpa did for them and how much he loved them.
