Dear Horia and family,
I am so desperately sorry for your hearbreaking loss. Brandusa was such a vibrant woman and, as is clear from all the lovely messages in this book, she made an impact on us all. She was unfailingly positive in her outlook, enormous fun to be around, intelligent, inspiring and, put simply, one of those people in life that you never forget. I wish I had worked with her for longer as we were just starting out on our friendship journey but I will treasure the little taster of what I was lucky enough to experience. I am sure she lives on in Kara and Luca – what an incredible role model she was for you.
I know how hard it is and how much you will miss her but you can treasure all the wonderful memories you have, talk of her often, do the things she enjoyed, listen to her favourite music. All of these things will keep her close. It’s as good for you now to laugh about the fun times as much as it is to cry because she has gone.
Sending you all much love and support. You must be immensely proud of her – I am certainly proud to have known her. I look forward to celebrating her life with you at a memorial for her; there is so much to celebrate.
