I haven't met Mamiji for over 20 years, but my memories of her, when she visited India last with Derrick, are very vivid. She was a very lovely and vivacious lady, with always a smile on her face! It was a pleasure to spend time with her! Now, with her going away, a beautiful era has come to an end. My deepest condolences to Munno, Bobby, Derrick and the entire family. I will miss Mamiji and always remember her beauty and grace! God be with her.

Dolly Roy was a strong was a strong-minded woman who always used to put a smile on everyone's faces. Dolly would participate in majority of the programs on the floor including Bingo, Trivia, and reading programs which were her favourites. She loved her Cheetos and Doritos from her bingo prizes and definitely would eat both bags in one sitting. Dolly would also answer all the intellectual questions which should her intelligence. She is going to be missed by the staff members and other residents. It is sad to know that she is not here with us anymore, but we know that she is in a better place, resting peacefully.
