You left on February 28th. Every day he got in touch and repeated that he would be back soon. March 6, you called, I cried, asked to return, but you said: "Don't worry, everything will be fine." I waited, prayed, asked ... Every day I waited with trepidation that you would still call, to hear your voice again.
March 8 is the most terrible day in my life, when they told me: "Your husband's team was ambushed and your husband did not return." Our daddy, our hope, support, our protection and the pride of my whole life, how could this happen. Scream, tears, hysteria, it's all some kind of mistake.
March 7 is the most important day in your life, the day when your continuation was born, your long-awaited daughter. But now this day has divided our life into before and after.
I will never forget your happy eyes when our daughter was born in 2016, and you eagerly wanted to hold her first and attended the birth, as you studied all the books and textbooks for parents with me.
