I have so many memories of some of my best discussions on religious and spiritual matters. Your immense interest in poetry and religious subjects always inspired me. I always felt blessed in your presence. Although you are no more available to us in bodily form but your memories will be always there for us as a permanent source of guidance and inspiration.
We have such profound memories of having nice conversations with Amma jee.. We will definitely miss those. She was very kind and gentle and was always so caring and appreciative of others. Our prayer is for her departed soul. May the family have the courage to bear this colossal loss. Please accept our heartfelt condolences. We will continue to cherish the memories of hers.
Auntie was a really amazing lady. She always had a kind word and a smile for everyone. It’s hard to loose some one who meant so much to all of us, even harder that we can’t all be together to say goodbye. We want you to know that we are with you in spirit – now and in the days and weeks ahead. With heartfelt condolences. Shaila Singh & Family
