A Tribute to a Life Well Lived…

We have been very busy with ‘things’ going on in our life from the beginning of December, this past year. In between breezing through the holiday season and Krista’s baptism, something saddening had also occurred in our family. At the time I felt like I was not ready to share here, until now. So, today, I would like to talk about a certain death in our family which followed soon after Christmas. We are still reeling with the devastating loss of our cousin who was a very dear man. He was fighting with Cancer for the past one and half years and finally lost the battle. It was a terrible time for all of us and we grieved with his family members in their sorrow and supported them through out the ordeal.


  1. May his soul rest in peace. Cancer is such a horrible disease. I mean all disease are horrible but cancer is a mother of all other disease. Not only patient but their family also go through tremendous mental pain.

    Hope scientist come up soon with some cures for cancer . Cancer is growing rapidly these days.

    Its a very tough time for your family and your cousin’s family. May God give you strength to cope up with your grieve . Take care.

  2. I am very sorry to hear about your loss. But as you pointed out, it was a life well lived, and when it was time for him, he too passed on, without questioning the apparent absurdity or unfairness of it all. In fact, that is what we all should be doing. Being able to live life with raw energy and unbridled passion, but ever ready to let go of everyone and everything, at any point.
