Andrej! One large Latvian oak tree has lost a big branch! This branch is you! So suddenly! And there is huge sadness and emptiness... But - You have left behind so much - a whole forest! ...And the birds will sing in the tree branches, and we will hear You! And your sincerity and smile will not disappear in our memories!

Jura Reilly -

Andrejs, I remember so well … that sunny day when your mother brought out a basket of pīragi, fuelling our Chemistry revision session! and then, taking time off from our studies to watch 'Ashes & Diamonds' & 'Do No'; your tales of mineral exploration in the Pilbara & adventures in Darwin; conversations around the table with the Sorority girls & cabarets at Latvian House. Come this Jāņu Nakts / St. John's Night, leap through the bonfire and dance amongst the stars: we will be watching.
