Journalist James Foley's family shared a memorized letter he dictated to a fellow captor. The family released the letter the same day hundreds remembered him in his home state.
The letter, posted to Facebook, has several messages for individual family members. It also details how he and 17 other captives passed the days by sharing memories and playing games with scraps found in their holding cell.
FOLEY: "I have had weak and strong days. We are so grateful when anyone is freed; but of course, yearn for our own freedom. We try to encourage each other and share strength."
