“After a successful delivery, just for you to go get some items from home back to the hospital, you never returned to the hospital but travelled to great beyond
“You could not even name your handsome boy. Philip, who does that? Could it be your fate that you’ll never see your own child? Again, dear philip, who accepts such ugly fate?
