120 Years in Freedom!

Sala dearest!

On your birthday we are sending you
Our most sincere wishes,
For all your dreams to come true.
May you never again know suffering,
And may you live, in good health,
For 120 years in freedom,
Together with your beloved parents,
Your siblings and Harry.
Happiness and joy should always be yours.

These heartfelt wishes are sent to you by Hela and Ititka.
