KOVASIN Olavi Ensio

Olavi’s final slumber came on February 18th, 2009 in his 93rd year. Predeceased by his wife and soul mate Annikki, in 2006, Olavi sought comfort in his daily prayer until the day he could join her. He will be missed by his son Rauli (Dianne) his daughter Marietta, Grandsons Rich (Rosanne), Keith, Jessie (Hye Jin), and Granddaughter Virginia.

Olavi immigrated to Canada from Finland in 1952. His wife and their two children joined him later and they settled in Thunder Bay Ontario. In 1967 they moved to British Columbia, residing in Surrey and Campbell River. Their final years were spent at the Finnish Home in Vancouver.

Memorial Service to be held at a later date.

I Wish You Enough

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive

I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys of life appear much bigger

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all you possess

I wish you enough Hello’s to get you through the Final Good-bye.
