Gülperi Akici who did not hear from Yonca for 3 years, said: "It is so hard not to hear one's child voice. I couldn't get enough of her smell, of her laughter. She always consoled us when we went visiting her saying 'Rewşa we başbe, ez jî başim' (If you are doing well, I am ok). So even in such a bad situation she always thought of us first. She didn't even tell us she was on hunger strike."
Mother Akici who told about her last visit to her daughter, said: "She told me not to cry in front of them if anything to happen to her one day. But when her body came to the neighborhood she grew up in, I couldn't held back my tears and I cried. They didn't even let me touch her, smell her..My biggest regret is that I could not keep my promise to her and cry in front of them. I hope she forgave me.."
