    We were just told about Adria’s recent death. Alana, your mom used to show me her beautiful photos. I am sure there is a big hole in everyone’s heart. There is nothing we can say, other than we are deeply saddened and cannot imagine the pain your family feels.

    Elsien mailissa meille oli maininta Calien 4.10 syntymäpäivästä.

    Muistelimme Adrianin poismanoa ja netistä löytyikin Hänestä kaunis muistokirjoitus.

    Tapahtuman aikaan yritimme kuvitella Teidän tuskaanne ja nyt se tuli vielä uudestaan mieliimme.

    Toivomme että olette päässeet tasapainoon tämän surullisen tapauksen aiheuttamasta järkytyksestä.

    Aikaa on jo kulunut yli 2 vuotta, mutta kuitenkin halusimme osoittaa myötätuntomme Teille.

    Hilve ja Martti Lintunen
