Holding soil from Finland

At the cemetery, two of Ron Hermanson's sons showed the vial and bag of soil that
Charles Sarkela brought from Finland as he didn't think he would ever be going back.
I guess Linda has been the holder of the vial.  They sprinkled a little on the casket and
said it would be fitting for the oldest Sarkela grandchild to be the holder of the vial so
it was precented to Robert Maki.  In picture Kenneth Sarkela is holding the vial and
Robert Maki is holding the bag, tho Bob will have them both.  He will pass them on to
his off spring.
