Revelation 21:4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more,neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

My dear all - all of you the Shiuks (Shiukashvili)Zhenia, Otar and Daniel, you are dear to me. Memories have that good habit of going through generations and remaining in our hearts and minds forever. I do not want to lose you for as long as I am alive, and then, tell my kids Eka, Kesnia, Boka and Alina that our families had known each other for long and well, and cherished our love and friendship. I also want to keep our good memory of Lali and Misha who have left in me the dearest reminiscence of the moments we had spent in togetherness. This is all very valuable and this is all about our darlings Otar & Bella. I will be 75 this coming second of May, and I am not losing hope that we will see each other some day soon to share this love with each other, left as a hope by this wonderful man & woman for us. Lovingly remembering all like yesterday, Nugzar B. Ruhadze.

To Otari and Daniel: I was a witness from your earliest days to your grandmother's deep love for you. You gave her life meaning when she had lost so much. Bella was my piano teacher for over 20 years and my dear friend for a decade beyond that. In this past year we had some very special lessons. It was our way to spend time together, and even a few months ago, she knew and felt the sound and shape of each and every note and phrase of the music. In this case, it was Scriabin. She never lost the ability to be moved and transported by the sounds of the music she loved. She gave the tremendous gift of musical interpretation to so many students over the years. And because of Bella, I have been a piano teacher for the past 20 years. She was funny, she was tough, and if she loved you,
she loved you fiercely. I will feel her with me in every moment at the piano and all the days of my life. I am so grateful for her life.

Dear Shiuk Family,
Christ is Risen!
It was an honor to have know Bella for many years and especially to have been given the opportunity to say prayers together with her before she passed on. May her memory be eternal!
