her until recently when a tragic story about her was told. During a time when
she was 6 months old, there was a parade outside their house and the servant
in charge of her went to the window to look at its passing. The servant left
the child unattended and she in turn fell off the window and hit her head on
the floor. It was later concluded that the fall caused her to contact meningitis
that led to her death.
