“Today was not the person I loved most in this world. This is a man who loved life and passed that love to all. I don’t know what words to describe what I feel. The world became empty. It is now much less love and fewer still are those who are not afraid and know how to describe it in verse, generously sharing the ability to love the next generations. I don’t know what to say to convey the pain, the sadness and the tears that filled this day,” said O. Dovgy.
