Your untimely death was a terrible blow to your young children and forever changed their lives, Especially your young daughter Dora, life goes on and a bright spot emerged when she had her loving family. It has been 103 years, and several generations, time eases the sadness. Family history has indicated the murderers were forgiven for their crime. I am proud to be your granddaughter.
