This was also, the elderly woman’s very first “love letter”.

The elderly woman recalled, that she was dissatisfied with her first marriage, but waited until she was elderly, and all five of her children are already married and started on their separate lives, did she worked up the courage, and got married again, found her own life.
“Chen”, was an unmarried military man in the Air Force, who’d worked alongside the elderly woman thirty years ago in the factories, she’d found, that he wasn’t happy in his marriage, and, from feeling sorry for his life, fell for him. The elderly woman married Chen, who’s over ten years older than she, and they’d called themselves, an “elderly pair of lovebirds”, that although they weren’t well-to-do, but, they had all the happiness in the world.
“We’d never spent a day apart in thirty years, never fought, we loved one another deeply”, the elderly said, wiping away her tears, that Chen had watched over, took care of every detail of her life, and once, she’d mentioned how she loved the chicken wings, and, the very next day, she’d found a bag of fried chicken wings on the supper tables. But for these past two years, the elderly stopped eating the chicken wings, because it’d reminded of the man she loved dearly who’s no longer by her side.
In September of last year, Chen died, she’d missed him every single day, and before the meals, she’d looked at his memorial tablet, or called out to the skies, “Chen, come for your meal!” that way, she’d feel settled having her meals too, “like he’s still, right here beside me.”
The elderly woman lives alone in a house in Huwei, and was looked after by the Huashan Foundation, she’d said, that all of her children and grandchildren live and work away, but are all very wonderful, and would come back home to visit around the New Years’ and the holidays as well.
The District Attorney, Wen-Jie Lee who usually writes out the indictment charges for court, took off his robe and became a volunteer, for the Foundation’s “Letter from Home” activities, and after he’d penned the letter for the elderly woman, he’d heard her say, “hope that Chen get receive this, and know that I miss him every single day………”, he felt moved, and felt, that helping her write down this letter was a very meaningful thing that he’d done.
