    Crows Funeral

    THE PASSING OF VALERA BARBANOV In the sight of God, the Crown of Haense hereby brings these words to the public; Valera Barbanov, née Carrion—the wedded wife of Marius Barbanov, heir to the Crown of Haense—passed into the hands of God during childbirth, giving her life in the yielding of a son to Prince Marius christened Petyr Andrik Barbanov. It is with a grave solemnity that this message is delivered, for the Princess Valera was beloved not only by her husband and family but by the people of the Kingdom of Haense. In her diligent service of the Crown, she showed unceasingly splendid character and spirit in all tasks and undertakings. The Crown thus prays for a bountiful and marvelous afterlife in which all is in abundance and in which every comfort is given. In her honor shall the people of Haense and the many others Valera graced mourn for her, for we shall never see her likes again. The Crown has planned to host a funeral for Valera with a magnitude that reflects her greatness of mind and character to be held in the coming weeks.
