I lost a dear friend a week ago. He was back in Moscow and had been battling C for some time.

Sergey was the Russian ambassador to the UAE.

It is a sad fact of life that we loose those we are close to but it does not mean that they go unforgotten.

I took this photo back in 2005 in Moscow. One of many with his and my family.

Sorry to hear this Gary; from the look of him, I guess he wasn't that old?

Sorry to hear this Gary. In some ways we are lucky that we have photos, and that one is a lovely image.

Andy: according to the article he was 68.

It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head. Henri Cartier-Bresson
Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I am sorry for your loss Gary. No matter the circumstances it is so very hard to lose someone close.

And to echo Kris' comment, the portrait is lovely. Full of happiness and warmth.

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.

I do feel for you Gary - reflect on your good memories and treasure the images you've secured. That simple portrait shows a genuine warm smile, a true connection between Sergey and You

Sorry for your loss Gary, He looks very happy in this pic and I suppose that's probably how you'll remember him.

I received a text last week and have now found the announcement.

"Russian leader Vladimir Putin signed a decree posthumously awarding Ambassadors to the UAE and Zambia with the Order of Courage.

The corresponding decree was published on the official Internet portal of legal information.

“For courage, dedication and high professionalism displayed in the performance of their official duty, to award the Order of Courage to the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Zambia, Alexander Vilovich Boldyrev (posthumously) and the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sergey Nikolaevich Kuznetsov (posthumously), ”the text says.

In January, it was reported that the Russian ambassador to the United Arab Emirates, Sergei Kuznetsov, had died at the age of 67.
"

I have to assume that it is of some comfort to his dear wife and children.
