  • E dashur Tanci!
    Sot eshte dita e fundit, minuta e fundit qe do shikosh babane tend te dashur , te paharruarin kusheririn tim !
    Me shume dhimbje po e percjellim ne banesen e fundit dhe perj andhej ne Parajsen qiellore, se ai e meriton ate vend, Zoti ja pergatitur poltronen e ndershmerise, sinqeritetit dhe dadhurise qe gjithe jeten e ka shoqeruar Postolin tone . Njeres te vecante , shume te rralle tani qene prinderit tane , te ndershem , te beses , te perkushtuar per familjen femijet , niperit e mbesat.
    I perjetshem kujtimi i tij, paqe qiellore per te gjithe familjaret e dashur , tju kete lene uraten !
