Afsaneh, Box II

On August 11 2013, whilst on a visit to see my aunt, she suffered a mild stroke. She asked me to grab her handbag as we got into the ambulance. A second stroke that evening whilst in the hospital sent Afsaneh into a coma and on August 13 she was gone. She was 56.

As we left the hospital my father and I were handed a plastic bag that contained Afsaneh's personal belongings.
