Most of you already know about the tragic accident where my sister's husband, father Marius, lost his life. My brother-in-law was driving back home to his family, where everyone was ready to surprise him with a birthday cake, being his 35th birthday the next day.
His last words and thoughts when he was receiving first aid were that he is an Orthodox priest, has 4 children and a wife waiting home.
He went into Heaven after a couple of hours from the accident, passing away due to heavy internal bleeding during surgery.
My nieces and nephiew (Anastasia 9, Irina 7, Sofiana 4 and Nicolae 18mnths) need all the compassion and love, as they won't have a dad to drive them to piano lessons, swimming lessons or dancing. Cruel as all this is, Tia, the oldest one, said "auntie, when I think daddy is with the angels, I am not so sad anymore". And children have the purest soul, so probably they know better than us adults, bringing brightness to the darkest of the days.
Petronela, my sister, is keeping strong and crying only when she is alone, as she is a lioness, never wanting to burden anyone with her pain. But I think, as strong as she seems, she needs all the help she can get, as it won't be easy to be a single mum of 4.
So...what are friends for if not to stick together in such sad and cruel times?
Thank you, thank you, thank you in her and our family's name!
