An excerpt from her letter to her family while she was held hostage:

"Everyone, If you are receiving this letter it means I am still detained but my cell mates (starting from 11/2/2014) have been released. I have asked them to contact you + send you this letter. It's hard to know what to say. Please know that I am in a safe location, completely unharmed + healthy (put on weight in fact); I have been treated w/ the utmost respect + kindness.

I wanted to write you all a well thought out letter (but I didn't know if my cell mates would be leaving in the coming days or the coming months restricting my time but primarily) I could only but write the letter a paragraph at a time, just the thought of you all sends me into a fit of tears.

If you could say I have "suffered" at all throughout this whole experience it is only in knowing how much suffering I have put you all through; I will never ask you to forgive me as I do not deserve forgiveness.

I remember mom always telling me that all in all in the end the only one you really have is God. I have come to a place in experience where, in every sense of the word, I have surrendered myself to our creator b/c literally there was no elseā€¦. + by God + by your prayers I have felt tenderly cradled in freefall. "

It was tragic to hear that her death was confirmed. Such a wonderful contribution to the world she made in too short of a life.

As a parent, all I wish of my children is for them to grow up and make positive contributions to society. This girl definitely did that.

Her family should hold her memory proudly.

I'm sure they are doing that, Ruby. AND - it's good to hear that the parents aren't buying in to ISIS propaganda that it was the Jordanian air strikes that killed her.

Like - what's their agenda? They don't mind broadcasting the beheading of journalists - and the burning of captured pilots - yet they want to blame the death of this woman on Jordan's retaliation???
