22/12/1933 – 19/09/2005
As mentioned in my recent blog entry, Mr. Alaeinia passed away in Iran following a sudden and unexpected heart attack which sent him into a coma from which he sadly did not recover. The delay caused by the coma did, at least, enable some loved ones to be by his side before his passing.
Mr Alaeinia was present at our wedding and also visited when Ladan was in intensive care in the first week following Ladan’s fall into a coma.
Several services have been held for Mr Alaeinia both in the United Kingdom and in Iran and it is clear that he and his family have touched many hearts.
The night of the 24th/25th September marks 9 months since the siezure that started in the early hours of Christmas day last year, a siezure which caused such a sharp deterioration less than 2 months into Ladan’s recovery. Extra prayers for Ladan would be appreciated on this occasion.
I would like to give an inadequate mention here of Mr. Alaeinia who was in Newcastle when Ladan fell into a coma and visited her, and whose wife and son (Arash) have continued to visit Ladan and to give support to the family while Mr. Alaenia has been back in Iran.
Last week I heard that Mr. Alaenia had a short heart attack as he left a shop in Iran and as a result he fell into a coma, this week the even sadder news has reached me that he has passed away and there is a memorial meeting for him in Newcastle tonight (Saturday 24th) which I intend, of course, to attend.
