I don't know if Märtha's Instagram post about Ari from 3 January has been posted here before? I think it's rather beautiful, so I'll try to translate it:
"Dear Ari, We should have spent Christmas together and celebrated. We had all looked forward to it. And we are so endlessly sad and grieved over the loss of exactly you, because you were the girls' warm, funny, wise and good dad whom they miss so deeply. We miss your funny comments, your fine viewpoints, your poetic tone, the abundant compliments, the great love you had for them. Today you would have been so immensely proud of them. However, now there is an empty space where you used to be, because no-one can ever replace you to our beautiful girls. And it is so painful to think that you wanted to leave this world. We are in deep pain and sorrow, all of us.
An invisible disease took hold more and more in you, because so it is when the mental health fails. Over a long period of time we saw you disappear gradually, but we held firm in the belief that all would turn out well in the end. Your family has fought for you. They have stood there for you day and night. You are and will continue to be deeply missed, Ari, and I feel this grief knowing that you never really understood how loved you were. I hope that those of us who are left can be good at praising each other and saying those good words to one another. Because we have this life to share with each other exactly how happy we are about each other and what wonderful qualities we see in one another. We hold you in love, Ari, and we move one with your words: Each day is a feast and you are a jewel."
Thank you for translating and sharing this.
