      Aulis hymyili ja pudisti päätään, mutta tajusin, ettei hän voisi kieltää lapsilta taloa. [ - - - ] Hän oli nimensä veroinen mies ja perheenisä: antelias, hyväsydäminen, avulias ja valmis tekemään kaikkensa perheen onnen eteen.
      Aulis smiled and shook his head, but I realized that he couldn't forbid his children from getting the house. [ - - - ] He was a man worthy of his name, a family father: generous, goodhearted, helpful and ready to do anything for his family.
