This had happened before, that was why we believed the phone was about to ring because he had planned to come home and bring a toy Peppa Pig for the daughter. My husband has always fulfilled his promises and came on time. But instead of Serhiy. There came his military colleagues, saying: "Please accept our sympathy... Your husband is a hero!” barely holding back her tears says Yulia.
