I knew Colonel Jalali since he was a Captain and was our neighbor in Saad-Abad. My best memory from him was the time I lived in a Military Barrack in Brussels, Belgium in 1976 as a military cadet for Iranian Army. It was late afternoon and I was studying in my room when I suddenly heard a lot of noise in the hallway. People were running left and right and doors slamming. Within 10 seconds someone was knocking on the door. I opened the door to my surprise there was Colonel Jalali with full military uniform. I was extremely surprised and so happy to see him, as though I saw my father. After talking for a few minutes, asking me how I was doing and explaining why he was in Belgium, I walked with him to the exit where a military car was waiting for him. When I was back in my room, my friends gathered around me and asked me who he was. They were all scared and told me that they were cleaning their rooms and thought Colonel Jalali was a military inspector from the Army.
I never had a chance to tell him the story, but I am sure he knew the situation he created for others. I’ll never forget that thoughtful visit.
God bless him, Rohash Shad and my condolences to Mrs. Jalali, Azita Khanum and Koorosh khan.

I remember the first time I felt heartache such as the one I feel now with the passing of amoo Shahrokh was when we lost my father. At the time amoo shahrokh’s steady presence, his gentle , deeply caring soul was what carried us through those hard times. I will miss him dearly. His wisdom, his kindness, and solid support and love for our family.

I mourn the loss of yet another beloved soul within six months apart of each other... No words can justify the man I had the honor to call "Amoo Shahrokh". A Gentle-Man, a Great-Man, an Honorable-Man, a Respectable-Man, a Loyal-Man,... He left a permanent imprint on the heart of anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Rest In Peace Amoo Shahrokh aziz... You may be gone from sight, but will never ever be gone from our hearts.

Miss the affection that bestowed life to the family

Miss the unparalleled silent in times of hardship

Miss the forbearance that unsparingly barred his body and soul and prospered all

Miss the knowledge and the intellect that was used to guide loved ones.

My dear Uncle Shahrokh loved nothing but helping and giving to others. His divine nature was far away from the temptations and the greed of the world.
He endeavoured and dedicated his time in aiding and supporting his compatriots.

Any impossible and complicated riddles for others were always solved instantly and this always made our family and others immensely proud.
Most sincere condolences to the family and the loved ones may his soul rest in an eternal peace

Afshin, Nazila and Asal

He was an incredible man. A real dad to us all. I lost my dad when I was fourteen and he made me feel loved like my dad for almost 4 decades. he was always reassuring and grateful for the love that he received. He gave back every step of the way. I am so lucky to have been touched by him. Loved him very much. Lucky me. So sad to have lost him. All great things come to an end. My heart aches.
