I was shocked to hear about P. J.'s passing. He was one of those special individuals who really cared about people. He was always calm,, no matter what storms were going on at work. He could speak a word and diffuse a situation. I am so sorry for your loss, Tara...he was such a special person. Prayers go out to you and your family..

To know PJ was to like PJ. He was a remarkable individual and an authentic leader to his team. Ever quick to smile, PJ was easy to talk to and very unassuming. He and I often talked about living in the UK and all that the experience entails. True to type, his last comments at our last meeting was to recognize and congratulate someone for their accomplishment and promotion...Ever thoughtful and interested in uplifting others. I consider myself very fortunate to have known and been associated with such a generous soul. I will miss him dearly.

Tara, Anand, Mynaben, Anish, Vindobhai and Dipakbhai; please accept my most sincere condolences. May you find comfort in cherished memories, and May God keep and assure you all.

I was in shock when I got the news. Tara, you and your family are in our prayers.
PJ loved you all and he was so proud of each of your accomplishments. Throughout the years your family has been a role model for so many people. Ups and downs, family matters, work changes-you all championed through them because of the leadership from PJ. He was an outstanding smart provider and yes-he could throw a party. 😏
At work his leadership stood out because he was a caring manager. He often stood his ground for what's best for the officers. I too have been around almost 16 years and as I reflect back, he was always a stand-out leader on each level of his career, because he applied TSA standards and he spoke out on subject matter when needed. I will always remember his distinct royal-like accent.☺️ I liked hearing him talk. He often had something funny to say. He subconsciously kept a smile on many faces just by hearing his voice. He should have been a narrator for the SOP on audio. He could read a corrective action and leave the officer feeling good about themselves--then wonder later-what just happened??
PJ dedicated his life to his family and we-his extended family-benefited from his ultimate sacrificial dedication to his job at TSA. God speed.

Death isn’t the end of life, but rather a transition from one stage of existence to the next. It’s hardest for those left behind, but always their spirit will be with you and your memories of them will help you overcome the pain. When life presents these difficult moments, it’s best to seek the learning and lesson from the darkness. It is said that death may be our best teacher. For what we learn through death is the way we should live life. Make every moment count, let the little things go, be the best human you can possibly be.

My heartfelt condolences,
The sudden death of PJ is unbearable.
Let his soul rest in peace,
Let your mind find courage to handle this sorrow.
Death can never be detached in our fate.
Don’t worry we will meet them someday, in heaven where eternal happiness will stay.
I could barely imagine how difficult it is for you all to carry such burden but trust that you’re not alone, we’re here for you.
PJ will truly be missed!

I am on total shock, I have known PJ for nearly 40 years! I can truly say he was my first and best friend, I will never forget him. He was alway proper and a gentleman. Many times he would tell me of his childhood being brought up in India and the United Kingdom. My fondest memories where when his dad was here and we would go to lunch at the local Chinese buffets on the North Fwy. Things will never be the same with out PJ, I knew PJ during my entire career with the Houston Police Department 1983-2004, God bless you Tara, Nayna and Anand!
