Knowing Stephen and Elizabeth we realize what a warm and loving family you are and your husband/ father will be missed so dearly.We are happy we were able to spend time with Peter and Agnes in St. Petersburg a couple years ago.  Such a lovely man. We know it hasn't been easy watching him deteriorate and we are happy he is finally at peace.  We will see you at the funeral on Monday. Sending hugs.
