Ramila Parekh grove

na jayate mriyate va kadacin

nayam bhutva bhavita va na bhuyah

ajo nityah sasvato 'yam purano

na hanyate hanyamane sarire


For the soul there is never birth nor death.

Nor, having once been, does he ever cease to be.

He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing, undying and primeval.

He is not slain when the body is slain.

Bhagavad Gita As It Is chapter 2, text 20

To my beautiful & brave mother:

Like a silent Tree, its soul unseen

you watch over me as once you had been

Like branches and leaves spread to give shade

your love shelters me and will never fade

Hare Krsna mom love Picho x

She asked me, "Do you miss her?" I replied, "Yes but I have five Mothers. First is my Birth Mother, who gave me life. She is in my heart and forever my soul. Second, is the Holy Cow who gave me milk to survive. Third, is Mother Earth who let me grow on her fields. Fourth, is Maa Gayatri who gave me the gift of knowledge and wisdom I share and know. Fifth is the Holy River Maa Ganga who awaits to take me where I belong... I must be the luckiest daughter in the entire world." They say Heaven is at your Mother's feet. I found My Heaven on Earth... because of YOU Mum and with you I will take my every breath as you will forever be in the reflection of my eyes, the beat of my heart and the light of my soul. Love you always baby juma bucha n ne pyaar... 100xs. Mayu xxx

From the day we met you, you cared and loved us like we were your own family. The warmth and sunshine you brought in our lives is now lost, so sad. You will always be in our hearts and thoughts. It will never be the same without you. May god bless you, may you rest in peace. Safina & Family xxx

My Beautiful Maa. God saw you getting tired, When a cure was not to be, He put his arms around you And whispered, Come With Me. So when we saw you sleeping So peaceful, free from pain, We could Not wish you back, To suffer that again. A Heart of Gold stopped beating, Your tearing heart at rest. God took you home to prove to us, He always takes the best. Mom, no words can never express the deepest gratitude I have for you. You were there for me my whole life, taught me so much and I love you so much for it. I mostly respect, admire and love you for the person YOU were. I always thank God for the blessing of His gift to me, my Angel Mom. I miss you and love you always, Your baby H xXx

Drs and Nurses called her 'The Little Lady', we knew her as 'The Little Lady With The Big Heart'. Love Rosy xXx My mother- Goddess like. Three words to describe Mr. Patrigoyas- Loving, Dedicated and Sacrificing. A woman who put everyone else before her, regardless of the situation. A woman whose arms were open to anyone. Mum would welcome with open loving arms, even if it was thy Enemy. Spiritual and gifted- she earnt her one and only Qualities. A message from me mum: 'I can never repay what you have done for your babies..but I will surely reflect on your karma and make you PROUD. There is no one else I would bow my head to..no one else knows that better than you..You are a PRIVILIDGE and the PURE BOON to my life. My reason of blessing is confirmed and I await to return to you' Your Jonine xXx
