death of spouse Grief widow

Shahriar Zolfaghari 

Shahriar Zolfaghari, I love you and that is all I have to say. We miss you and long for the resurrection. 

I wanted to sleep through the anniversary of one year, but Zoya apparently wants to stay up all night. 

So now it has been more than a year since our last text. 

I want to be asleep by 1:00. By the time the gun went off. 

I want to be asleep at 2:00 when the pronounced you dead. 

And 4:00 when I realized you were home and 6:00 when the ME called. 

I need to sleep through this night so I don’t stop breathing. 

It is the last first. So I’ll remember your bright eyes that told me you loved me, your big feet that made me feel grounded, and your heart that wanted a baby girl more than anything in the world. 

If I had known that you would die 3 years after we met, I would have done it the same. We were so blessed.

  2. While looking for an Attorney, I came a cross the news of your tragic loss. Wow ! I am so…so sorry for your loss. then as I wanted to move on. as a Christian, when I saw the picture of your precious daughter Baptism I couldn’t. and I had to say something. I know probably nothing can be said. except to say hold on to your faith as strong as you can. because I know that Good Lord will take care of you’ll no matter what. believe it or not, when I was down and in need of my God, he was there and helped me through. thank you and God bless you for your service.
    Yes God willing I know few hard years passed. but please…please if there is anything I can do to warm your heart let me know. I am semi retired. Good Lord be with you every step of the way to be there for your precious daughter. tonight I go to sleep heavy hearted about this tragic story, thinking and praying for you’ll.
    Good night. please if all possible be in touch.
