(Newser) – The widow of the cave diver who died in the rescue operation to save 12 boys and their coach trapped in a flooded Thailand cave has been posting heartbreaking tributes to her late husband on her Instagram account. The Straits Times offers translations of some of Valeepoan Kunan's posts about Saman Gunan, 38, including one in which she says, "You'll always be with me… There's no one like you… If you're not with me, I don't want to go on breathing… because we promised each other we would use the same breath." Gunan will be cremated Saturday, Channel News Asia reports. (Read more Thailand stories.)
