This memorial website was created in memory of my beloved mother, Salome Farahmand Penn, 83 1/2 years old, Born on March 25, 1929 and passed away on November 29, 2012. I will remember her forever and I know I will see her on the other side.  I'm still hurting and it was so unexpected.  I wish she had taken me with her, as I feel like a part of me died when she died.  I love you so much Mama and will love you forever.  You were my Hero and Soulmate.  I miss you so much Mama and still cry for you every day at any given moment.  

Desiree, your daughter and only child.

"To my Dearest Mama,
Yesterday was your 4th Anniversary of passing which a part of me died with you, on that God awful day, November 29, 2012..  I don't know how I'm surviving as I have had a broken heart which will never mend,, ever since I saw you in the hospital and then more so at your funeral.  I wish I could visit your grave but it's dangerous for me to come to that country.  I couldn't bring your body with me because Merci's children made sure that you were buried there.  Those evil people who stole everything you had and treat me like dirt.  I couldn't take you home the last day you were alive as you were hooked up to a breathing machine.  I still suffer from PTSD from the time I stayed with you in the hospital until you passed away, which made me go into shock.  I want you to know that I think of you every day and cry almost every day because I miss and love you more than anyone in the world.  I can't wait to see and be with you eternally.  Mama please be with me in Spirit.  I love you so much.  Your daughter, Desirée"

"I will always remember how kind you were to me when I first visited Paris. Your soft spoken voice will always be in your daughter, Desiree's memory.
I will always be here to try to give comfort to Desiree. That is what I'm sure you as her mother would want."

"To my Dearest Mama,
I'm still grieving your loss (which I always will until I see you again) and miss spending quality time with you and hearing your beautiful voice every morning on the phone.  I truly loved you from the bottom of my heart which is still in pain, and miss how much you cared for me.  I cared so much for you as you were my world.  I miss your kindness which made you so special & unique, and you were the most beautiful person and mother in my life.  You will always be in my heart, mind and soul.  I'm continuing my journey on earth and I'm very unhappy without you.  I send hugs and kisses to you in Heaven and can't wait to see you.  I love you more than anyone in the world.  Your only child & daughter - Desiree"

"Happy Mother's Day.  It as a very sad day for me without you.  I have been so lost without you and miss and love you more than anyone in the world.  I miss your love and caring and your beautiful voice.  You will always be in my Heart, mind and Soul.  When I die, I know that I will see you again and please make sure that you get my soul so we can live eternally together.  You were my only family and now I feel alone and abandoned.  You were the best thing that ever happened to me Mama.  Now I am so unhappy without you and don't care about life any more.  How did you get so sick like as we both said.  It's a struggle to get through every day.  Please be with me in Spirit and comfort me.  Oh Mama I loved you more than you ever thought.  How am I suppose to live without you?  I don't know any more and it's been 3 1/2 years that I haven't seen you or heard your beautiful voice.  It's killing me slowly.  I just want to be with you."

"To my Dearest Mama,
Yesterday was your birthday and you would have been 87 years old.  I am still grieving and crying every day because I lost the love of my life.  I lit a candle for you and sang Happy Birthday to you yesterday.  I hope you heard it.  Please let your Spirit stay with me forever, until I cross over, then take my soul and reunite me with yours, so that we can be together eternally---that's all I hope for right now.  You were gone too soon and it was the most devastating event in my life.  I miss your love for me and how much you cared for me, were kind and generous to me.  You were the best thing that ever happened to me.  Oh Mama, how am I suppose to live without you?  It's been so hard and painful.  I loved you more than anyone in the world and carry you in my heart, mind and soul.  I wish I could be with you and hug you tight.  
I love you so much Mama and will always love you forever.
Your only child, Desiree"

"To my Dearest Mama - Yesterday marked your three year anniversary since you left me and this world.  I thought about you all day and I think about you every day and how much I miss your voice and spending quality time together.  I always felt so comfortable and safe with you but not any more since you passed away on November 29, 2012.  I cannot get over grieving for you and my heart is still in pain because I lost you and you were the most special and loveable person in my life.  You were my World!  I know that you're not suffering any more and you're in Heaven, and I'm glad you were not in Paris during the terrorist attacks because it was horrible.  This world is not the same as you knew it - it's awful now.  I carry you in my heart wherever I am, and you're in my mind and Soul, and hope that your Spirit will always be with me.  

When I die, please come and take my soul with yours so that we can be together eternally-I know that I will see you again.  Ever since you got sick and then passed away, I have never been the same without you.  I don't enjoy life and nothing makes me happy.  Only you made me happy.  I love you more than anyone in the world. I'm sending you a long hug -oh how I wish I could be with you as you were the only person that loved and cared about me and was so kind and honest to me, which I felt the same about you.  I miss you so much and I'm crying for you now again.  From your only child and daughter,  Desiree xxxxxxxx"

"Mama I miss and love you so much.  My heart is still in pain as you were the love and joy of my life.  You were the most beautiful mother inside and out and so kind and generous.  I still cry for you every day as I miss you so badly.  You're my Angel in Heaven.  I miss the time I spent with you as I felt so comfortable and protected and happy because you loved and cared so much for me.  I miss you beautiful soft voice and everything about you.  Oh Mama, let you Spirit be with me always, until I see you again."

"To my dearest & darling Mama,

I miss you Mama more than ever.  I miss seeing you in Paris, hearing your voice every morning on the phone, looking into your gorgeous green eyes that also showed your love for me, the safety I felt having you in my life, your kindness and generosity that I've never seen before.  You had a heart of gold and I only trusted you because you never lied to me.  Thank you Mama for everything you did for me in my life, I am so grateful to you. If it were not for you Mama, I would have never made it in life.  Sometimes I wish I were never born so that I wouldn't experience the pain that I've had from losing you. I never thought you were going to pass away when I saw you.

Although Yasmine took care of you in Iran, we became enemies because she didn't even ask me where I would like you to be buried and demanded for $10,000 claiming that I owed Hadji. I paid it for your burial and funeral plus Yasmine demanded for a $1,000 to have your grave cleaned which I sent her.  I would have definitely had you cremated and brought you home with me and made plans to bury your ashes with mine.  

I know your Spirit is with me and I love and miss you more than anyone in the world.  You were my world and the love of my life.  I feel lost without you, abandoned and cry every day for you.

If Dodo would have arranged for me to come sooner, I would be there a month or two before you passed away but they didn't, but at least I spent 2 nights with you in the hospital room before you were rushed to ICU where you passed 3 days later.  They never told me you had cancer until a month later and no doctor could have cured you because you were at Stage IV, which is the last stage and it had spread to your brain

Your favorite Quote was "Desiderata."

I am not and never will be the same for the rest of my life and will never get over losing you.  My only hope is that I'm going to see you again when I die, and that you will come down like a bird and take me under your wings and go with you and be with you eternally.

I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING OR ANYONE IN THE WORLD.

Your only child,

Desiree"

"I'm with you and just want to be with you physically.  I'm so unhappy without you, alone, and scared.  Nothing in this world makes me happy.  I feel like I'm on the dark side of the moon.  When I die, my only hope is that I will see you and I'm sure you'll be waiting for me."

"My dear Mama.  I still cry for you every day and I miss your voice and beautiful gorgeous green eyes.  I feel like I've lost a part of me because it's with you.  You're forever in my Heart and Soul and I'm forever yours..  My Mama I know you're with me and once I pass I will be with you forever.  This all happened too soon.  I hope one day I can visit your grave on the otherside of the globe.  Goodbye until the next note."
