Please accept my deepest sympathies.

Vani, Bindu, Anila and members of Podila family:

Gopi is like my younger brother; he taught me survival skills: floating on your back on water, ‘discovered’ jalapeno chips for my wife, Pankaja, and made the best vegetarian pizza for our daughters, Sharwari and Aparna. We will miss him but he will be always 'alive in our thoughts and minds'. Vani and all, keep the strengths have courage to fearlessly move on in his academic paths. Love,

Dr. Podila was a great man who had a deep impact on my life and career. As an undergraduate at Michigan Tech he had faith in my potential as a scientist and supported this strongly through his advice and teachings. His classes were tough and made me work hard, but this created greater appreciation for his teachings and my passion for biology. I was lucky enough to be invited into his lab and earn my master's degree. I have taken his passion into my work and will continue to do so.

My condolences go out to his family and children. He was taken from this world too soon. May god grant you strength in this difficult time.
