  • Saham (Sam to us here) was always the finest of gentlemen to everyone he met and worked with here. He was well liked and was a fountain of engineering knowledge and analytical skills. He will be missed by all who knew him. We had lunch together on numerous occasions with an office group trying out different restaurants or to say good-by to someone leaving this office. It is hard now to imagine that he is gone from amongst us all.

    “Life and death are so closely allied that they are the two halves of one heartbeat and yet death never seems very real to us in the normal course of events – who therefore awaited Shoghi Effendi’s death!”

  • I and my Yekom colleagues in Iran were all shocked when we received the news of Saham’s sad demise. He was very nice and knowledgeable man who devoted his efforts to everyone needed. We had a very fruitful meeting with him last yea when he was visiting Iran. He presented all of experiences he had gained during the period that he had immigrated to USA. I pray his soul will rest in peace.
