Dear Shivani - You will always be remembered for your caring, loving and helping nature. My first meeting with you was in Delhi at your parents home in September of 1981. I was charmed by your sweet nature. After you moved to USA, it was so much fun to meet you and see your so many other several talents.
This is still a shock to us and your passing is a huge loss to both of us and my kids. They all loved calling you 'Massi'.
You were part of all of our celebrations, you made all the parties fun and you helped me in so many ways. Your services at the temple will always be remembered by next generations.
You will always be in our hearts and we will always remember you. You are in a much better place as you were a true devotee. Love you always!

Shivani - I never thought I would be writing in memory of a friend. This is still a shock to me and lost for words. You have been a friend for over 21 years and your passing is a loss to many and I. I know you are in a better place and for all that is grieving, we should take from it that you lived your life serving your community and people around you. Rest in peace my friend. I will miss you but never forget you. To your family, please have my condolences. I share your grief.

I came to know Shivani when I started working at PricewaterhouseCoopers. She is such a lovely person to be around. She will be missed.

Shivani and I go back 21 years at IBM. Our work-ship quickly became a friendship. She was FUN! My best memories are the many days we spent scaring one another in the office. We'd hide behind office doors or sneak up behind each other to see who could generate the biggest reaction. In the beginning Shivani was an easy target - I was winning! - but then she got savy and learned how to take her revenge on me. I never admitted it, but many times she got me good! Forever friendship. ❤️

When I think of Shivani, the first words that come to me are kind, compassionate and trustworthy. She worked as a valued and extremely dedicated member of our project team for many years, always committed to doing her best. Equally as valued, she was a friend to many and was welcoming to everyone. She eagerly volunteered to help out frequently, often wanting to stay in the background without attention but diligently helping any way she could. I also remember her empathy when my parents passed away and in other difficult times. Shivani will be dearly missed by her TTMS work family and her many friends and family.

Such a shock! I remember Shivani so well after working with her for 20 years. She was always so bright and eager to help and to learn new things, even though she often had so much asked of her. This is too sad and far too soon.

Shivani and I used to work in the same project more than a decade ago and were very close and then we recently met again in the office when her project moved to my location. The last time I saw her was the last day she was in office two Wednesdays ago. It is still unbelievable that she passed! This was such a shocking and abrupt departure that was way too soon ! She dedicated her life to service of others and had created deep rooted relations in the Indian community with her temple volunteering. My deepest condolences to the family that she left behind.

I first met Dear Shivani (Liked to be called by her nick name "Tunu") in 1980 when I married her sister Kumkum Gupta at Delhi. Since then untill May 6th 2019, she has been the most loving, caring, sweet, jovial person I have ever met in my life. She was always full of humor and energy. It is so hard to believe that she is not among us anymore. Ever since she moved to USA in 1996, and after the opening of the Durga temple, she had been an integral part of Northern Virginia community. Doing for others any time of the day brought her joy. You can never be replaced and there can never be another Shivani. Whenever we saw your car at our drive way, we always out of joy said "Tunu has come". We will miss that very much each day.

We all miss you Dear Tunu very much. You always had smile on your face. Our entire family here and back home are in deep shock and they all miss you badly.

May you rest in peace.

Shivani, I can not forget it forever that you brought me on the project in 2000.
Since then we were working together. I will miss you a lot.

I knew Shivani from 1985. She attended my wedding in New Delhi, India and was from my husband's side. She was always very caring and loving. Her memories will never be faded.
