Yesterday I received the news that Rajad Ali Dindar passed away in Mashhad…
Leaving behind his dear wife and children Javad, Majid and Elahe. So sad as he was a young and my alleged brother at one point in life. He was such a charming man and I will miss him a lot. I am so sad and realizing I will not meet him again when going back to Iran. I had the feeling he was the patriarch of the family as he and his siblings lost their parents over 40 years ago. He will always be in my heart. Thinking of the entire family and sending my condoleances to them in these hard times.
Sending my love to the Dindar family.. and to his brother Abbas and 4 sisters.. Tooba, Soghra, Azra and Homa and also to their still missing sister Fatemeh.
Rajab Ali is the second man on the right side sitting at the Persian rug.
The one who said during recording of Finding Farideh
‘She hasn’t chosen yet..’
He and his dear wife gave me the Qoran after the results of the DNA test.
Ali and his wife and daughter also came to the train station to wave us off when we left Mashhad.. so heartwarming.
Rajad Ali is reunited with his parents and niece Samaneh, way too soon.
Bless them all. Dooset Daram.
