I barely knew Amir. I might have taken some computer science classes with him, we might have even worked on projects and homeworks together. I don't remember. All I know is that I remember him and that the news of his passing hurt me.
I can see how wonderful a person and friend he was to all of you who knew him well. What I wanted to share with you is that even for those of us who had only fleeting interactions with him, he was, and will always be, memorable.
In Memory of Amir Lopatin
