Letter to the Editor
An update on ‘A Look Back’ item

May 09, 2012

Dear Editor,

In "A Look Back," April 11, you mentioned our daughter, Liisa Vaara celebrating her first birthday with friends and family.

Well, 50 years later the Vaaras, now a family of 17, celebrated her 51st birthday at her home in Royal Oak.

Liisa and her husband, Jeff Lewis, graduated from Michigan State University. Jeff is an engineer with Ford Motor Company and Lisa is a social worker at Woodward Hills Nursing Center.

Their daughter, Nickora, graduated from the University of Michigan last December. She was valedictorian of her Royal Oak High School class. Their son, MacKay, is a sophomore at Royal Oak High School.

Thank you for mentioning our precious daughter, Liisa.

Jo and Mel Vaara
