I'm very happy that you are together for such a long time. You are very lucky that you have each other.
By the way, do you have children?
I would love to come very much, believe me, but I'm afraid something else has come up. You probably know that
my mother was seriously ill. The doctors tried everything but she died yesterday. Tomorrow there is her funeral.
I hope that you will understand our situation. Please don't be angry with me. I wish you all the best.
