Dear Friend,

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me because, I believe
everyone will die someday.My name is Mr. Ahmed Fahrin,a merchant in United

I have been diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer which was discovered very
late,due to my laxity in caring for my health. It has defiled all forms of
medicine, and right now I have only about three weeks to live, according to
medical experts.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for
anyone not even myself but only my business. Though I am very rich, I was
never generous.I was always hostile to people and only focused on my
business as that was the only thing I cared for.But now I regret all this as
I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all
the money in the world. If I have a second chance to come to this world I
would live my life a different way from  how I have lived it.

So i am looking for a pen-pal friend that will give me words of
encouragement because,life is too short for me now to be lonely.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Ahmed Fahrin.
