In a Facebook post shared by Being You that has received over 1.8 lakh 'likes' and more than 42,000 shares, Salma Shafeeq Ghori describes the worst moment of her life, and how she learnt to live with it.
"I was 29 when Major Shafeeq Ghori was martyred. People told me to move on... but he was, is, and will always be my Forever" - she says in the post shared on the date her husband died fighting terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir, 16 years ago.
She was 29 when she lost her husband after 10 years of marriage.
Ms Ghori talks in her post about moving to different cities and often staying away from her husband for long periods. "I knew he loved the country the most and his kids and wife came a close second," she says.
She now works with widows and families of army martyrs and plays the role of both mother and father to their children.
The page also posted a photo of Ms Ghori posing with her husband's uniform, which she refused to wash for years as she clung to memories and keepsakes.
