Dear Shivi and Babu, I was so deeply saddened to hear of the passing of your beloved father. He was the epitome of true gentleman. I loved the time we spent together during our parent conferences so much. His pride in and dedication to both of you shone through in every smile and word he said. It was a true privilege to know him. What a wonderful example your parents have set for both of you. Please let your mom know that I remember them both so fondly and that I offer my deepest sympathies. Mrs. Maria
