Tragedy... that's all that I can say right now. I don't have the words.
My eyes fell on the keyboard after they popped out of my head seeing that. It's quite shocking when you're reading up on transactions, you see "Jussi Tilikainen (loaned to Switzerland)," followed by "Sergei Zholtok (died)"...
If there is a listing in either Diena or one of the other dailies for where to send sympathy cards, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll just send one to Riga 2000, as I have their address. I am of Latvian descent, so it can be in Latvian if necessary (I speak it well enough, and can read/write it passably though my grammar is likely suspect).
I really am saddened by this, and compassion and sympathies go to the family, as well as his teammates, past and present.
