I’ve always said I can handle everything else, but I can’t handle my kids’ funerals. I could never imagine that I would have to bury my own child. It’s so raw, it’s crushing.

The father remembers Juna as a bright person who was liked by all.

– There have been many phone calls and condolences, and everyone says that Juna was a happy, bright and smiling boy. Everyone had a lot of fun in the dressing room when Juna was there.

– My biggest question to God is: Why? He moved into his apartment in Mikkeli two months ago, wanting to try to move on. I can’t say more, it’s such a crushing sadness. Papa, mummy and elder brother will miss you.
