    Just a small published note would have sufficed. Who would dare NOT have helped?

    Showered blessings on the departed soul and Rest in Peace!

    God tests us on Earth and answerable to him on our departure to him.

    Sad and a tragic story of a poor family.One side I can understand his position to meet end without wife and a ailing daughter,no means to pay back loans,no end of her sickness.But it doesnt allow to kill her.Atleast he could have asked someone to send a help note in Daiji or some magazin.Poor soul died alone without a person to be on her side.A mother how could she stay with daughter when her ailing daughter needed her sooo much.God ,give her soul a eternal rest.Hope father has not undergone any suecide attempt.
