To Armen's family:
I worked with him in 1983 at Stone & Webster at the Shoreham plant in NY. We flew home together
every Friday night and we had so much fun. He was among the most happy, genuine people I have ever met.
He would laugh when I would mis-pronounce his name.
My wife even remembered him. I am so sorry for this loss.

To dear Aftandilian and Baghdasarian families,
Words may not suffice to express the heartfelt sorrow that I feel. While my tears are flowing for Armen I keep hearing his voice joking and teasing everyone around him. His laugh and fun memories will always stay in my mind and heart. He was a friend who brought nothing but joy every time we talked.
And dear Violet......You truly showed us what unconditional love is with your kindness, strength and love, caring for him and being on his side through his difficult time. Now, Armen is in heaven and in peace.
In this sorrowful time, Peter and I would like to extend to you our heartfelt condolences. May our Lord comfort you, Armineh, your children and everyone in your family.
