    I am so sorry to hear this news, Dipika was the best neighbor and friend. She had the most gentle spirit. She was so loving, all of the time. I have so many memories, living across the street and seeing her with Meetal, Parool, Pranav, Surendra and their extended family. After we both moved we would bump into each other and catch up, she was so proud of her children and so happy to be a grandmother. My deepest sorrow for your loss.Cathy Crawford

    …..Life can never stay the same, no matter how we try.
    Our hands can never stop the clock of life from ticking by.
    But, the love remains unchanged in the care of sorrowful hearts,
    For as the love of this life surrenders, the love of Sweet memory starts.”

    My love, prayers and thoughts are with you and the Children…Dipika’s smiling face will always be close to my heart and always be cherished…Deeply missing her!!!
