We should like to follow your wishes respecting the grave of your son. That is our duty with respect to her liberators. One of our liberators was your son. He is your dear dead. He is our dear dead also. What we can do for him we shall do for love. We like to embellish his grave with flowers. I visit every day our dear dead of the military cemetery and I pray over the graves. I shall never forget your dear son. That is our duty. May God bless you Dear Mother.
