Dear Cousin,

May you rest In peace. I did not see you often but we did talk on the phone. I know you loved teaching and it seems you were a great teacher. Your students have said a lot of good things about you. It is not easy to receive a lot of praise from students unless one is really a good teacher and a caring person. My condolences to your loved ones. Huschang Moschtaghi in Freiburg mourns your passing.

We meet certain people in our lifetime who make such a huge impression in our life that we never forget them. Dr. Cyrus Azimi, is one of them for me. Being a fellow Iranian-American, I first met Dr. Azimi in early 80s, while a student at UCF. He was one of the most gentle, most caring and most brilliant people I've ever known. Although we had not seen each other for some time, for over 35 years we kept in touch via New Year greetings and phone calls. I had the pleasure of speaking with him about a week before his passing and we decided to get together as soon as he feels better. RIP dear Dr. Azimi. Your loving and gentle spirit will be always with us. Thank you for the beautiful memories.

Professor Azimi was my professor for two of my classes. His spirit was so gentle, but so firm. His presence was like a gentle wind of fresh air. He was so wise, and so sweet. I know he is resting peacefully now.

Azimi you were the single most reason I kept striving for my degree in psychology and why i decided to go for a masters degree.
The respect he showed towards the mentally disabled “no no no we do not use the word retarded they are not less than”. He will be missed in this world, psychology is forever effected by him. One of the greatest.

Dr. Azimi,
You were my favorite professor I’ve had since I’ve been at UCF by far, and you truly showed how much passion you had for your profession. You viewed us not as students, but as your family and your grandchildren. I took your class for both abnormal psych and clinical psych and I’m truly glad I got to see you one last time this semester before God took you home to be with him. You were a beautiful soul who impacted thousands of lives and you’ve truly given me inspiration to be a psychologist. I will always remember when we had finals for abnormal psych and you just smiled and said “I love having you all together again, I just love seeing all of your faces.” And that makes me smile every time because you truly loved us. We love you just as much, Dr. Azimi and we will never forget you.

Dr. Azimi thank you for your never ending guidance and kindness towards me. You were my first psychology professor when I transferred schools and left an impression on me. Thank you for your dedication. Rest In Peace.

Thank you for being a professor who I took two years ago, yet still talk about today. You were such a kindhearted and genuine soul. You were always calling your students your 'best friends' and your 'children'. It was a little ways you gave us affirmations that made your class so enjoyable. May you rest in peace, as you will never be forgotten.
