Mr. Baetens, I know we never met but I was friends with your son Nick and daughter Natalee. Our friend Karic and I were unfortunately not able to make it to the viewing tonight, but we both wanted to wish our best to you and your family and let them know that we are always here. Nick and Natalee, hang in there! I know it must be hard, but there's always light at the end of every tunnel. You'll see each other again someday. Until then, he will always be with you in your hearts.
