Dafa disciple Ms. Wang Ruifen from Yushu City, Jilin Province, was 82 years old. After she started to practice Falun Gong in 1995, all of her diseases were cured and she changed from being furtive and pessimistic to open and bright. Her incredible changes surprised her relatives, friends and fellow villagers.
Ms. Wang Ruifen had six children, four of whom practice Falun Dafa. After July 20, 1999, these four children all suffered persecution, especially during early March 2002. One of her children suffered torture and was then sentenced to a labor camp for the second time for three years. One child was taken from home and put into a labor camp. One was suspected by the police of being involved in emergency broadcasting (Cha Bo) and was interrogated for two days and nights. Another child was taking care of Ms. Wang, whose own home was occupied by the police for two days and nights. The child couldn't go home and had to become destitute and homeless.
Seeing her four children persecuted and taken away one by one, Ms. Wang aged suddenly. She was alarmed and anxious for her four children and she also lost her cultivation environment. She died in June 2004.
