Mr. Guo Shanxiu, 84, enjoyed good health after starting Falun Dafa cultivation in 1996. Because her daughter persisted in her belief in Falun Dafa, the police and some local government officials detained her for over 240 days. The persecutors also extorted over 10,000 yuan from her. The incident deeply shocked Mr. Guo Shanxiu. He began to suffer from heart disease and died in July 2002.
