(Clearwisdom.net) In 2002, the 610 Office arrested Ms. Zhang Baoying, a practitioner from Jiamusi City, and she was sentenced to five years in prison. Ms. Zhang was first detained at the Jiamusi Detention Center and then transferred to the Heilongjiang Women's Prison in 2003. Her absence took a devastating toll on her 70-year-old mother, Liu Simei, who missed her so much that she became ill and died in deepest sorrow on March 10, 2005.

Due to the Jiang regime's ruthless persecution of Falun Gong, Mrs. Liu Simei had already become distraught with fear for her daughter's safety. In grief over her daughter's sudden and mysterious absence, Ms. Liu's health rapidly deteriorated. In her fragile state, the family members dared not tell her that Ms. Zhang had been imprisoned, but instead said that her daughter could not risk returning home in order to avoid certain detention. The broken-hearted elderly woman never got the opportunity to see her daughter one last time before passing away on the afternoon of March 10.

Ms. Zhang Baoying has been following the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance since she began practicing Falun Dafa. She cultivates herself to be a good person. She had always looked after parents, lived in harmony with her family members, got along well with neighbors and was always very considerate. Tragically, however, the Jiang regime chose to throw such a good person as this into prison. For the past three years, Ms. Zhang has been subjected to every possible means of torture. Even though she is just forty, she appears much older now, thin and weak and with gray hair. Isolated in prison, Ms. Zhang is still unaware that her mother passed away two months ago.

The brutal persecution of the Jiang regime has broken up a happy family and filled each member with grief and sadness. With his wife now gone and his daughter still in prison, Ms. Zhang's elderly father is tearful every day. Despite missing his daughter day and night, he is unable to visit her. As a single father, Ms. Zhang's husband also lives a difficult life, raising their only child by himself. He sincerely hopes that his wife will somehow be able to come home again soon. With cherished memories, their child longs for the return of Mother's care.
