If I told you that your father will be murdered on a Saturday afternoon at your house would you believe it? would your world turn upside down and never be the same again? Would you do anything to find out who is responsible for taking away the foundation of your family and robbing you the love of a beloved father, husband and grandfather?
Well, that is exactly what happened to my family and that is why I am here reaching out to you for your help. Our father, Rostam Poulad was a victim of a horrible and senseless crime. He was murdered on November 30, 2013 at our family home. The home where my sibling s and I grew up in. The house where many milestone events happened, like birthdays, anniversaries.
Rostam Poulad was a caring son and brother for 69 years, a loving husband for 40 years, and amazing father for 3 children and a fun loving grandfather for 4 grand kids. Grandchildren who will look at his picture and will only know of him though our stories. Rostam Poulad was the pillar of our family and we all turned to him for guidance and advice. he was actively involved in his children and grandchildren's lives. He loved his family unconditionally and did everything he could to provide us with the best in life.
