Amu Ferri, what to say? Perhaps start with this: Amu (uncle) Ferri (persian diminutive for Fereydoon) had a favorite persian song, Sange Sabur = "patience stone " or "pierre de patience", which he sang beautifully. Most people who knew my uncle, thought of him, rightly, as a dear, kind, sincere, honest, truthful - and reserved - man. When he sang, the other Amu Ferri, the (probably hidden to many) passionate, sensitive man with strong feelings and the fragility that comes with it - would come out. And it was wonderful to behold. Listening to my uncle sing - and being very much surprised - is one of my first childhood memories that made me aware (without knowing it then) of something beyond, or if you will, in the best sense of the phrase, what-you-see-is-not-always-what-you-get - which in this case is not only all right, it goes to show that even for some one recognized by everyone who met him as a wonderful man - his soul may have unchartered and most noble realms that can take one further, higher and into a more beautiful world when he - in this case - sings his soul.

I hope you don't get the impression that I am trying to be "literary" about this, I believe sincerely and as much as anything I know or believe in all that I have written above. During Amu Ferri's last year of life, I had the good fortune of spending "alone" time with him, Rita and Bodeka. Let me thank here Rita for all her kindness, her frankness to speak her mind always, her grace in most difficult circumstances in many ways, and her wonderful sense of humor.

On our way to the hardware store, fruit shop, or when despite his illness he would take me places, Amu Ferri and I talked and talked (Khoshnoods are known to be good at this - especially when it comes to food - even though Amu Ferri was the most reasonable of us in this as in much else). I got to discover so much about him. and - a personal moment of grace and Shangri La - I got to buy him a drink at the age of 50. Believe me, it was one of the best moments in my life.

Apparently, Amu Ferri is gone - hard to believe. As a fairly agnostic preson, I still hope and want to believe in afterlife. It just seems impossible for me to think that such a soul can really be gone. I felt the same when I lost my Dad (Baba Manuchehr, Amu Ferri's brother). I hope they are sitting together now laughing about (sorry Ben!): "Good meat, tastes good, but it is not kabob" or Amu Ferri is telling my dad: "I thought you were yourself in the mornings but even that is not true". I'd love to joint them when the time comes.

"Earth, receive an honored guest", in Amu Ferri's memory,

Babak

I will always cherish the memories of my close friendship with Fereydoon and Rita throughout the years that we lived in Cocoa Beach. A brilliant man with a wonderful sense of humor and zest for life, Fereydoon will be missed by so many. The world was a better place when he was with us.

So sad to hear about Dr. Khoshnood. He was one of the very first gastroenterolgists I ever worked with at Cape Canaveral Hospital.
Always so sweet never a unkind word uttered.
Prayers and peaceful thoughts of strength to Mrs. Khoshnood and family
