    Condolences to Gary, her companionate husband, and her entire family. Our heartfelt prayers,

    Through the years, when Maj-Britt was visiting us, here in Finland, was always
    such a joy to meet her and Gary.

    She was funny, considerate and marvelous personality.

    We will always love and remember Maj-Britt

    Jari, Paivi and Matilda Seilo
