Papa and I miss you so much. You were our only child and the center of our universe. I'll never be a grandmother to your children, never lean on you again for your Solomonic wisdom. How many painful milestones to pass..the first Saturday after your death was Mother's day. A few days later...your first wedding anniversary. You and your men were noble and selfless...loyal to each other til the end.

May those who brought this war to us come to understand your sacrifice and the true meaning of freedom."
