The journey home

Today we transported my wife from Helsinki back to Heinavesi in preparation for her funeral. It was a long day with not much to recommend for it.

The church which will conduct the funeral is a lovely old gothic wooden building which dates from the 1890's. The view from the hill is nice too.

My wife has family connections here so its a nice place to put her to rest among family.

One step at a time, makes this all possible as even each step feels hard. The journey feels impossible right now.

Thanks everyone for your support
