  1. Dear Nick and Diana,
    I will always remember Regina as a very happy, curious and very intelligent little girl.

    May she rest in a better place.

    My deepest condolences,

    To a brave little Princess – All my love to you and your family.
    Lives have changed just by knowing you. We have become better mothers, sister and daughters because of you and your wonderful family.

    Five years of hard fought battle,with faith, hope and love, your family has my deepest respect and sympathy. No one can truly understand unless for those who had experienced it. Know that Regina is in a better place and in peace, it is a relief. May peace be your family.

    Ja lill on iga inime
    Ernst Enno

    Mis sest, et ükskord pannakse
    mul käed risti rinnale;
    kuus jalga pikk ja neli lai,
    sest kehal väike tuba sai.

    Samm kätkist kuni hauani,
    samm kalmust kuni kätkini –
    lill õitseb iga kevade
    ja lill on iga inime.

    Kas taktipulk on elu väes,
    või on see jälle surma käes –
    ma helisen nii endale,
    sest siht on ikka ülesse.

    Kuus jalga pikk ja neli lai,
    sest kehal väike tuba sai,
    kuid hingekoda otsata,
    hing iseendas lõpmata.

    Samm kätkist kuni hauani,
    samm kalmust jälle kätkini –
    käib ringi päike, ringi maa –
    eks me’gi nii pea valmima.

    Südamlik kaastunne

    Dear Diana, Nick and Gabriel,

    Still you are together with Regina in your heart and memories.

    Regina Melody, You are still a part of our memories.

    So rest well little angel
    May God be by your side
    We’ll dream of you for eternity
    We’ll hold you close, inside.

    Hold on mom, dad and brother!

    Spetsiaalselt Sulle emme Diana panen siia taaskord luuletuse, mille autoriks on ema, kelle pisike inglike samuti seal rahuriigis on…

    Vaata ema, olen tuul – mängin sinu juustes.
    Sositan sul kõrva tasa: “Olen sinu juures”

    Vaata ema, olen kuu – öösel sind ma paitan.
    Naeratus on sinu suul, unenäos sind aitan.

    Vaata ema, olen päike – sinu silmis säran.
    Näen seal hulga pisaraid, pühi need nüüd ära.

    Vaata ema, olen lumi – nõnda külm ja valge.
    Akna taha teen sul kohe hästi mitu hange.

    Vaata ema, olen vihm – märjaks teen su põsed.
    Kui vaid saaks, siis uhuks ära kõik su suured mured.

    Vaata ema, olen siin – sinu südames ja hinges.
    Olen sinu lähedal – sinu väike ingel.

    Kallistan kõvasti ja hoian teid oma mõtetes ja palvetes kaua kaua! Pidage vastu!
