Some people came from far just to remember the persons they lost.

"Each year, we come to celebrate the Memorial Day at home."

"I wish they rest in peace."

The women say they didn't sleep the whole night just to prepare food.

"We made traditional food: sarmale and coliva, the rest is made of fish and meat."

"We have brought all these to spread them with the persons who came here."

However, this year, the gypsy from Soroca complained they don't have enough money to buy the presents they were buying the previous years.

"Of course, the previous years it was better, but we can't afford the nowadays costs to have that luxury."
