The other day Baba had two lovely visitors - Mariza and her son Ara. They were Omeh's (your great grandmother's) neighbours in Iran over 50 years ago. Mariza lived across the road from Omeh and they were very good friends as well as neighbours. They knew each other for more than 28 years. She remembers also me and my sister. Almost 27 years ago Mariza and her family moved to America and now they live in Los Angeles, pretty close to Baba (well... close considering how big is America).
Baba had a lovely visit with Mariza and Ara. They talked about old days in Iran and current life in LA. The conversation brought up lots of memories of Omeh (bless her soul) and good times they had together.
Omeh was a wonderful, warm, very proud and strong lady. She single-handed brought up all her children and was an amazing grandmother to me Fardin and Farid. I was very found of Omeh and she loved me very much. As a young boy a spent a lot of time with her. As you know, she passed away few years ago. I was there in Iran with her sharing her last days. She very much wanted to see you before she died, but unfortunately her wish never was granted.
