He was always cheerful and friendly

We have heard the unbearably sad news about Mehdi and want you to know that we are so incredibly sorry for the loss of your wonderful child. I know there is nothing that can possibly console you at this time, but nevertheless, please accept our heartfelt condolences.

Kirian was shocked when we told him and I think finds it hard to believe. He said, “But Medi is my friend.” It will take a while to sink in. He said he liked Medi very much because he was always cheerful and friendly, and in particular always helpful at school.
