Mrs. Leena Jose , A 30 year old nurse who made the ultimate sacrifice to take care of her patients. Leena and her two sisters had lost their father several years ago. After completing her nursing course she had struggled to repay her educational loan.Until her marriage, her family was dependent on her income. She got married with Mr.Jose,he was working in a private firm in abroad. After marriage she worked in a private hospital and quit after giving birth to their first child. After a break she joined in a primary health center. After their second child’s birth She got a daily-wages nurse job at a Taluk hospital in the hometown.

                          Her husband Mr.Jose , who works in abroad and she has two sons aged three and five. She had been working at the hospital for the past one year. Her colleagues at the hospital say she was extremely dedicated to her work.  She contracted the deadly virus while attending two brothers,who were the first victims of the fever out break in the country, who later died of illness.She also affected with a fever, she consulted doctors at the same hospital and she was admitted for one and half days. However, the fever persisted. Her temperature had reached 130 degree. In an emergency condition her relatives shifted her into other Govt. Hospital. When she was on her way to the hospital, she called her husband and told that, her fever was not subsiding.  However, a call from his brother came as a shock to Jose , who has told that he need to urgently fly down to hometown, since Leena’s condition was critical .Jose came from abroad . He met her one last time in the ICU, when she was unconscious. He held her hands for sometime and left. After that, a relative handed over a handwritten note to him. Leena had written it. The note read: “I think I am almost on my way, I don’t think I will be able to meet you. Please look after our children. Take them with you to abroad, don’t be all alone like our father, please. Love you “. He was shocked , he realised it was the last words from my love. She breathed her last breath. 

    After her death, the doctors did not hand over the body to her family. The hospital authorities cremated her body at an electric crematorium. The authorities said that this was done a precautionary measure aimed to restricting spread of the disease. A job in hometown was a relief for the young man, so that he could take care of the children better, but taking care of them during day was a bother.Three weeks after her death elder son could adjust to the reality.He tells the people who visits their home that  mamma is no more, but the younger one don’t know the reality.
