Dear Harprit and Sukh,
Your mom's passing was a shock for me as I was just thinking of phoning her and taking her out for lunch. It must have been very devastating for you since you and her have been inseparably close. My deepest condolence to you!
When I first knew her as a colleague, she struck me as a warm, elegant and intelligent woman. She was soft-spoken,but when she spoke, she was full of insight, wisdom and particularly a great deal of compassion and integrity. She advocated endlessly for the disadvantages; she had helped and changed many children and families' lives. Because of her, the world had become a better place to live. I will always remember the time she and I spent together, the joy of sharing our stories and belief and the opportunity of getting to know you - her beloved son and daughter she spoke fondly and proudly of.
Please take good care of yourselves, as this will be the greatest comfort for her.
