My dear father, Professor Heikki Koskenniemi, died in Christ very early yesterday in Turku.
Heikki Koskenniemi received his training by Prof. Vittorio Bartoletti in Florence in early 1950's and he visited papyrological conferences as long as it was possible for him. With my son, Johannes Koskenniemi, we will publish my father's edition of P.Turku together, hopely in 2014.
The international network of papyrologists meant to my father more than I can tell. Please, tell everyone who still remember him, our deepest gratitude for the kindness you showed to Heikki Koskenniemi.
