An emotional Susana Luveni wishes her late husband was alive to see their daughter grow up.

She was at the Police Remembrance Day at the Po- lice Special Response Unit in Nasinu yesterday with other family members of officers who had lost their lives in the past year.

Ms Luveni could not stop her tears as she carried her one-year-and-four-month-old daughter Virisila Taulealea Regu Bari to lay a wreath at the ceremony.

Her husband, the late Inspector Vilitati Bari, died last December after battling cancer. She described him as a kind, humble and soft spoken man.

 

“There is never a day that I don’t miss him. I wish he was alive to see our daughter grow up,” Ms Luveni said.

“I will always cherish the memories we created. Our daughter was only seven months old when he passed away.

“We miss him dearly; our daughter has no memory of him, but I always make sure to show his picture to her. Whenever I show her dad’s picture she would hug the picture and call him Pape.

“He taught me a valuable lesson and that is to have faith in God as no one superseded God’s decision.”

 

Ms Luveni thanked the Fiji Police Force for its continuous support.

“We thank the Fiji Police Force for inviting us to be part of this Remembrance Day,” she said.

“My husband was a proud Police officer and we thank God for his life. We may not get to spend a lot of time with him, but we thank God for his never-ending love and for giving us peace when we feel sad.”

The Police Remembrance Day is held each year to honour the lives of officers who have died.
