  1. One of the most generous people I have ever met, and not with just money but his time. He bailed me out of so many emergencies. Mehrzad was the epitome of the American dream. Many times he worked more than one job to support his family. He was successful in his endeavors, and I wish he had more time to reap the fruit of his labor. He was taken too soon.

  2. His place is in heaven. My good-natured, funny and well-behaved uncle. A self-made, hard-working and successful man who immigrated to America alone to achieve his dreams. Formed life and family in America. Several times when he came to Iran and I saw him, I realized what a kind heart he has. We laughed together too much and I could not get enough of meeting him. I always remember you, Uncle Mehrzad. From him, I have dear my cousins, Amir and Leila, my dear uncle’s wife, Mariya , whom I really love, and they are great and wonderful friends for me. From: ,Babak Dorostkar (babi) 💕🌹🕊
