The Heavenly Choir put out a call for another Angel to join them in song. Annikki Kovasin known for her joy to sing, answered the call on December 13, 2006. She will be missed by her soul mate of 61 years Olavi, her son Rauli (Dianne) her daughter Marietta, Grandsons Rich (Rosanne) Keith, Jessie, and Granddaughter Virginia.
Annikki immigrated to Canada from Finland in 1952 with her two children in tow to meet her husband who had come earlier and settled in Thunder Bay. Later they moved to Surrey BC for work, then on to Campbell River for retirement, where they resided until Annikki, suffering from the disease of Alzheimer’s required daily care. The Finish Manor became their home for the past six years, where surrounded by the loving care of her caretakers, and the prayers of her husband her final days were blessed.
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.
