I know I'm late.. but I never forgot u man .. I remember when I met u man, how u pretty much forced me to accept ur friendship and push harder bcuz of my stresses. U always was there when I needed u, when sometimes I didn't even ask. U just was a real friend and I was hurt to walk down that alley by our house and wonder what's going on and to learn my very good friend had passed. I cried man.. and I cried. When u text and told me u love me I was stuck ... That was one of the last text u sent my dude. U are surely missed. Theres so much I could say. But it kinda hurts trying to understand ur not here anymore ... Ur my friend for life. Until we meet again Shastri
My heart goes out to his mom Cheryl and the family. I prayer that you maybe comforted knowing that your son has touched so many people's life with a smile. May he rest in peace.
An impressive young man, taken too soon.
I always enjoyed seeing you at the Zoo. You were so friendly and cheerful. You are missed.
Thank you for the beauty you brought to our lives. You will be so missed.
Your lovely smile and your enthusiasm will be missed.
To the family: thank you for allowing us to have Shastri in our lives. He is a rare gem. Never will there be a life like his at work. God bless you and the family.
You made the world a more beautiful place. Thank you, you will be missed.
I met an awesome young man on January 29th at The Master Gardener Class. I realized immediately that I wanted to work with him. Shastri, was filled with so much passion for life! I will forever remember his beautiful smile, intelligence beyond years, and his magnetic energy.
We will miss you, Shastri, and so will my little son, Richie.
I met Shastri, in my Master Gardner class on January 29th. He was Bright,
Smart and willing to share. He had so much to offer the world. I am saddened by his sudden loss. I will miss him. My prayers are with you, family. Elizabeth Bobb
Shastri, you were such a vibrant and passionate person. I'll never forget your shining smile, nor your ability to make things grow. You are missed by so many.
Shastri. Your name will always be linked in my mind with your beautiful open smile that invited us to join in on the joys of life. As if there was always a laugh just moments away. Brimming with of dreams and ideas and you made the future seem just that much brighter. Your impact will be felt as much as it will be missed. Our prayers go out to your family and friends for whom no words will ever be enough. Sleep well, little brother; you have done so much work in so short a time.
Shastri. The future is not as bright with the lost of our friend and partner.
Dirge without Music
By Edna St. Vincent Millay
I am not resigned to the shutting away of loving hearts in the hard ground.
So it is, and so it will be, for so it has been, time out of mind:
Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely. Crowned
With lilies and with laurel they go; but I am not resigned.
Lovers and thinkers, into the earth with you.
Be one with the dull, the indiscriminate dust.
A fragment of what you felt, of what you knew,
A formula, a phrase remains, --- but the best is lost.
The answers quick & keen, the honest look, the laughter, the love,
They are gone. They have gone to feed the roses. Elegant and curled
Is the blossom. Fragrant is the blossom. I know. But I do not approve.
More precious was the light in your eyes than all the roses in the world.
Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave
Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;
Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.
I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
This poem somehow fit a brilliant shinning star of a man taken too soon. The world is suddenly a much poorer place. See you on the other side my friend. See you on the other side.
We heard tonight. All I can say is that the world is a much poorer place without you. See you on the other side. See you on the other side.
Shastri, we were blessed to have you in our lives for such a brief period. The impact you've made in our lives will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family.
