Kidnapped in 1980 in Iran, Isaac Lahijani's fate remained unknown to his family for 26 years. His wife and three children say they wept for weeks and months, unable to hold a memorial for him because they had no information about his whereabouts. The Lahijani family continued living in grief until this September, when Farzaneh Lahijani was finally given an official letter from the Iranian government telling her of her husband's death.
