To the Bereaved Family Of Dr. Askshay Desai,
Seema, Priyanka, Parth, and the younger sister, we are terribly saddened to know , only a few hours ago, of the passing of a great human being in your loved one Dr. Asksha Desai.
We shared and enjoyed beautiful socials, hospital and medical, with you over the years since the early 1980s! Oh, it is so heartbreaking not to have known earlier of his services and passing.
The Ancient Egyptians said that if we should keep the names of the deceased on the tongues of the living then it would seem as though they are still among us. Earl always says at our family funerals that, “ We never ever have to think of our loved ones as having passed!”
Please if ever there is something that we can assist you with , don’t hesitate to ask. We won’t ever forget Dr. Desai’s superior donation to the St. Petersburg NAACP when I chaired their first Piano Concert reception and fundraiser featuring the talented and beautiful Lillette Wisner.
For your thorough kindness, we will forever be grateful!
Jacqueline Cotman and Family

Dr Desai gave me my first job right out of school for coding. Over the 7 yrs I worked for UHC I had the opportunity to work closely with him on some projects. He was a very smart man & his forward thinking will be missed. My condolences to the family. May he Rest In Peace.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Dr DeSai....not only has he been my Dr but I considered him my friend and partner in my health. He always treated me with respect and patience. He saw me through rough times and supported me through them. I always felt that he cared about me as a person and showed interest in me. He would show me pictures of his family--how proud he was of them!! And when he returned from a family trip I enjoyed seeing pictures of his travels whenever he had time to show them. I will miss him very much, his life and now his death had meaning to me personally...may God comfort all his family, coworkers and friends through this difficult time...
My faith gives me hope of one day seeing him again...Revelation 21:3,4

"Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal". To the family I would like to express my sincere sympathy and condolences on the passing of Dr. Desai. As being a part of the Universal Team Family in Provider Operations and Contracting he gave me the unique opportunity to learn the healthcare industry as a visionary of what to come in the future. His company was on the cutting edge of how healthcare delivery was to be done in a systematic way. He gave me the opportunity to manage within Florida, Georgia, Texas, Louisiana and through out the Mid-West and Northern States. May God give you comfort during these difficult days.

Vernon and I have been patients of Dr. Desai for 6 years. He was such a wonderful Dr. We will never forget him. He was very kind and patient. Took time with us. Talking with us about his family and showing us pictures of his vacation When we asked how his vacation was. We felt proud to be his patient and friend. Never meet anyone quite like him. He surely will be missed.
