  1. For Mrs. Mackenzie Bezos,

    This is to inform you that I was sad to hear about your separation. In old age a husband will only be helpful, as children go their own way, it could be different in your case. By the way, you have such a kind face, hope you find a companion worthy of you.

    Parvin Eblagh.
