" I sent a _whatsap_ [< "What's up?," clearly] to my husband: Paco dear, …"

The writer is a Catalan friend using Spanish. Apparently, she's using "un
whatsap" to mean, "a note."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
