"My optimistic and just angel! Today we lost the battle for your life together. I do not doubt for a minute that you did everything possible and impossible to live! You always smiled in response to any difficulties and laughed in the face of danger, you were always honest, fair and very modest... You were my husband, my friend, my brother, my life! Apparently, heaven also needs someone to protect, otherwise they would not have taken you from us... I don't want to believe that I will never see your smile again. As I promised, I won't cry. I will pray and kiss our son, as you always asked... I love you infinitely," his wife Olena wrote.
