Dedicated to Allen Yekikian & Sosé Thomassian.
This past weekend, the Armenian community lost two young heroes named Allen Yekikian and Sose Thomassian in an unfortunate and tragic fatal car accident. The couple had repatriated back to Armenia, got married there, and began to start a new life — holding high positions in Armenia as well. The newlyweds were loved, cherished, and admired by the entire Armenian community and were definitely two individuals whose legacy will live on forever.

An incomplete thought; an unfinished life
A spark of hope; a beautiful husband and wife
An intricate mind; a journey left to complete
A fight for what’s right; a refusal of defeat
So much drive; so much perfection
So rational and wise; so precise with direction
So tragic to see; so devastating to hear
So lost without you; so hard not to shed a tear
A semicolon; a continuation
An abridgment; a solemn nation
A life cut short; an ending too soon
A dark day in May; A deep gloom of June
Your life was a fragment; but you were a complete sentence
You faced many obstacles; but you made each exit an entrance
You saw many flaws; but you made certain they were addressed
You were two separate individuals; but together, you coalesced
Your memory is far from incomplete – you are forever immortal.
Two angels on Earth have entered a different portal.
At the altar you vowed, “’Till death do us part.”
May you rest knowing your legacy is one forever to impart.
Allen and Sose,
Your sentence ended on a semicolon; with your guidance, however, we vow to finish the rest of the story.
