“He fought for 80 days. A great warrior, but God wanted it that way. I can only accept it with enormous pain, which destroys my heart.”
She continued: “To you my beautiful love, Mother just wants you to leave in peace.
“You will definitely have your grandmothers waiting for you, a part of me goes with you. I will love you forever. One day we will meet.”
