    Thank you for this dedication to the beloved and much revered father of our nation, my dear friend. Our country mourns his passing away. He advocated freedom not only for his own children but for all of humanity's downtrodden. May his gentle and forgiving soul rest in peace. Indeed the great lives on! Hamba kahle, Tata (go well, Father).
