Dear Beloved Fax Machine,

It is with a heavy heart and a stack of crumpled fax papers that we gather here today to bid you a fond farewell. Oh, dear fax machine, how you entertained us with your screeches, your beeps, and your constant craving for paper. You were a true enigma, a relic from a bygone era when dinosaurs roamed the earth and people actually used phone lines.

Do you remember the good old days, when the fax machine was the talk of the town? When the mere mention of your name would elicit gasps of amazement and cries of “What sorcery is this?” You were a star, dear fax machine, stealing the show with your futuristic ability to transmit documents through the airwaves.

But alas, times have changed, and you, dear fax machine, have become a faded memory in a world obsessed with instant gratification and digital miracles. Your once mighty presence has dwindled to a whisper, drowned out by the symphony of keyboards tapping and smartphones buzzing. You fought valiantly to stay relevant, but it was like an aging comedian trying to crack jokes in a room full of millennials who only spoke in emojis.

It’s true, dear fax machine, you were a stubborn grandparent, refusing to adapt to the ever-evolving landscape of technology. While emails, cloud storage, and instant messaging soared to new heights, you clung to your analog roots, insisting on the primacy of your outdated ways. And we, your faithful followers, couldn’t help but chuckle at your persistence.

Oh, the adventures we had together, dear fax machine! The endless battles with paper jams, the painstakingly slow transmission speeds, and the constant struggle to decipher the blurry mess that passed for a faxed document. You kept us on our toes, testing our patience and pushing us to the brink of madness.

But let us not dwell on the frustrations, for they were but a small price to pay for the joy you brought into our lives. We remember the thrill of receiving a fax, the anticipation as the machine whirred and beeped, announcing the arrival of a precious piece of paper. It was like receiving a message from the heavens, albeit a message that was often smudged, distorted, and generally illegible.

Your journey, dear fax machine, began long ago in the picturesque land of Italy. It was there that your ancestors, the pantelegraphs, first took shape, laying the foundation for the marvel that you would become. Oh, Italy, a land of pasta, wine, and fax machines! What a glorious combination.

But alas, the world has moved on, leaving you behind like a dusty relic in an attic. Your time has come, dear fax machine, to take your place in the annals of history, alongside typewriters, rotary phones, and floppy disks. You will forever be remembered as a quirky reminder of a simpler time, a time when receiving a fax confirmation was the highlight of our day.

So, dear fax machine, we bid you adieu with a tear in our eye and a smile on our faces. May you find peace in the realm of forgotten technology, where pagers, VHS tapes, and AOL CDs roam free. Farewell, dear friend. You will be missed, in a nostalgic, slightly exasperated kind of way.

With heartfelt regards,

Jigme Wangchuk
