People die only when we forget them

Saturday, 29 July, 2017

Let us be grateful to those who make us happy. They are the ones who save our souls. And let us declare that there is no death. People die only when we forget them. So let us remember my mother, who would have been 89 today, because if you remember someone, she will be with you always.
