    Love this beautiful page, a tribute to a gracious man, kind man, dad-to-us-all. A life well-lived and generations of family to follow and remember him. Farewell in Icelandic? I don't know. But in English, Farewell, dear man.

    With deep condolences for your loss. May your many wonderful memories sustain you and your family. You asked for a word or words to describe your father, Sonya, and I would say "proud father." Arnie and I have you and yours in our thoughts.

    Jack, Sue and family was a neighbor of ours when they lived in Scottsdale. Always the family we admired. Jack and wife Sue were great neighbors and our children played together. He was funny, kind, and very well liked by everyone who knew him.

      TJ H Two words: Beach ball. One summer day (1970?) Mr. Christianson called Sonya and me to the front driveway. He reached into the car and pulled out this brightly colored beach ball for us to play with in the pool - special times.
