“Armenia lost a great artist,” said his sister, Mane Zulalyan, while presenting Aren’s paintings.

“He was constantly drawing war heroes, and now he is gone…”, the sister cries. Mane says he can’t find words to describe the love he has for Aren and the void left by his brother’s death. According to Mane, the brother had a chosen one, he fell in love, but he did not tell the girl about his feelings. “I kept saying, ‘Why don’t you tell her about your feelings?’, he said, ‘this is not the place for me to confess my love to someone, because I don’t know what will happen to me in the next moment’, and … the worst happened.’
