Love and miss you everyday, my walking sunshine

Ravi thank you for being one of the biggest inspirations of my life. I may have met you later in your life but I feel so blessed to have even met someone of your nature at all. I have met many people in my young life and to speak truthfully

I was very sorry to read about your son passing away... I never met him but met you and your wife when Todd and my daughter, Erin Williams were friends at CDO. I can't imagin your pain. My thoughts and prayers are with you. It was wonderful to read all the great things about him....what a special person who came from a very special family.

Art, That is an amazing story and I am positive that Ravi was providing you with the "protection" you and Mary provided him with his whole life! He wanted you to complete your journey to the temple and he did "HIS" way!
All of our thoughts are with you your family!

I, my wife, my son David, my daughters Bekah and Sarah, just sat on the couch and cried our eyes out last year when we received the news that our wonderful cousin had fallen. I cry now as I write this. I love you Ravi. I love you Uncle Art, Aunt Mary, Wyan and Jennifer, Makko and Kathryn. May God bless you all during this anniversary with sustaining grace.

Ravi, my sweet cousin, you had immeasurable impact on so many people. Including me! Your light continues to inspire me to live my best life, however long I am here. I think of you often, and I am so grateful you are forever a part of my family.

I love and miss you dearly my son. One year has passed and my heart is still torn apart with pain. I will always remember your tenderness and love you had for me. And who could ever forget your sweet smile.

I went to a special ceremony today in a traditional Korean Buddhist temple. When I got off the subway it was raining so hard and I didn't have an umbrella. There was no way in that rain storm to make it to the temple. However, right in front of me on the sidewalk was a slightly broken umbrella. I picked it up and fixed it and made it safely to the temple. I would like to think that you were still looking out for me.

The temple was beautiful and filled with flowers, candles, many prayers, chants, meditations and thoughts of you. I gave your handsome picture to the monk and she will pray for you and our family.

My heart will never heal from the pain. I can only learn how to endure it until I die.

Love and hugs, Papa Art

We returned to Tucson with the news that your beloved son was taken by a mountain, led away past our eyes, into an exploration we know so little about. Chandra and I send our hearts out to you, believing that such a tragedy reminds us how precious life is and that each moment should be lived with profound gratitude that we are alive. Ravi, obviously understood this, and commited to all his passions in the fullest of intention. How clever of you to raise such a beautiful man.
Much love,

I remember when I was 20 and first met my 8 year old twin cousins. They were such loving boys to each other and to me. I was amazed by their closeness, intelligence, friendliness, and ability to love. I left that trip feeling love and admiration for my young cousins. Those boys were just so impressive at that age!

Aunt Mary and Uncle Art: ALL 3 of your sons are so amazing! They have grown to be friendly, intelligent, handsome and accomplished which is a true testament of your parenting skills. The few trips/reunions I have had with any of you has been so special to me. After every trip, I find myself bragging to all about my special, wonderful Arizona relatives. My Honey has too. I hope we are able to do half of the job, with our little Aiden, you and Art have done. I love and admire you all and I am sending all the strength and love I can to you.

Ravi - Your life and death will always have left a deep impression on me and clearly many others... some who have never even met you. I am sending love to you too! Watch over my Arizona family.
