My very dear Bita,
First, let me thank you for the exceedingly kind email you have sent to me. I am very flattered, my dear, but surely I do not deserve it.
Second, please accept my deepest condolences for your father’s death. May his soul rests in peace and his memory be forever alive with you.
As for your request, I don’t have a specific poem in mind. I believe this is something which depends entirely to the feeling of the person and the inner needs of expression. It is depends also to the personal perception of each person, from his own personal relationship with the lost loved one. For example I personally, chose a Saayeh’s (Houshang Ebtehaj) poem: Parvaz Khakestar for my father’s gravestone. I will post it here below. I will also give you a few poems as suggestion .
But overall, I wanted to suggest you to visit Ali P’s website : http://www.jaavdaanegaan.com
This is a very great Memorial website where you can also find lots of ideas. Please do visit Ali P’s Memorial website or contact him through the IC. I’m sure he can be of a great help to you.
Dearest Bita, I am so sorry that I had to blog this post instead of replying to you directly. For some reasons I can’t reply to all the IC’s friends, until I will create my own Weblog. I will keep your records and will be proud to contact you later to announce my own Weblog where you can contact me everyday.
Please don’t hesitate to send me email (or post comment here) if you have any further question.
