Our Baa was a very resilient, kind and loving lady, who taught us all a lot. Her warm smile, love and welcoming nature will be missed by us all. She left us with many wonderful memories and many happy times to look back on. She was a wonderful, selfless soul who always cared about others, showered us all with love and was a pillar of strength for us all. She was very spiritual and spent the last few years in prayer. We pray that our Baa finds eternal happiness and peace.


Baa, we will all miss you and your love and will remember you in our hearts forever.


In these challenging times, we regret there cannot be a saadri. We humbly request that you please recite three Navkar Mantras for her and remember her in your prayers for her soul to rest in peace.
