    At a memorial for Jacintha Saldanha, the nurse found dead after a hoax phone call for the Duchess of Cambridge, her family painted a picture of a deeply devoted mother, the “core of the family.” Following a mass at Westminster Abbey, held in her honor, Saldanha’s husband, Benedict, eulogized their 19 years of marriage. “Without your beautiful smile and sparkling personality, the house is an empty place to live,” he said. In a joint statement, Saldanha’s children, daughter Lisha, 14, and son Junal, 16, expressed their sorrow and shock. The official funeral for Saldanha, who was found hanged eight days ago, will be held at Our Lady of Health Church in Karnataka, India on Monday.
