Renchan Chettan is the first person I met in Canada and till then he is my big brother. During my initial days, we met everyday, went shopping together, has numerous dinner together, had evening walks together, He taught me driving, we drove to Calgary together ( my first drive out of city), he helped me to buy my first bicycle.. he came with me to pick my family from airport at first time, he welcomed my family with a gorgeous dinner at his new home.. . I can't forget the good days of choir practices, parish day practices.. we had played the drama during the church parish day.
my heart and body is shivering while writing this message. I can't really accept this sad news. I am so sad that I am not able to see or talk to Renchan Chettan in this world. I was literally talking to the bike which we bought together. I truly believe that he still can see us while sitting in the lap of our lord.
My sincere most condolences and prayers to Laly Chechi, Divya and Mathew.. I am sure that Mathew and Divya will carry his legacy and be the most successful persons as the wish of their dad. I have no words to console chechi, but praying to lord to give all strength to overcome this great loss and vacuum. My condolence to Paul uncle and Joby and their family and all his relatives in Canada and Kerala.
Chetta.. please accept my goodbye until we all meet again.. your memories will be cherished always..
Sinoj Abraham and my family
