I am a licensed funeral director and when I heard that Nodar was killed in an accident before the 2010 Olympics had started my heart went out for him, his friends and especially his mother - Dodo, father - David and his sister - Mariam, and of course all of his relatives and friends at home and at the Olympic.
I watched everything except for the crash on my computer, saved pictures of Nodar from the memorial service in Vancouver, B.C. to arriving home, his visitation, funeral and at the grave site.
I am still upset about Nodar's death and feel very emotional just thinking about what he had gone through. Nodar is my hero and a Gold Medalist.
My prayers go out to Nodar, his mom - Dodo, his dad - David and sister Mariam.
Rest in Peace Nodar.
