I'm grateful that he was my grandfather...and for every moment I spent with him growing up...I'm blessed to have been able to live with him these last 4 years on & off and I'm thankful that I had the opportunity to have had a hand in taking care of him these last few months. I'm so happy he returned "home" as we're all spirits having a human experience...not humans having a spiritual experience! I look forward to seeing him again!

A wonderful man, who made an impact on every person he ever met. One of my fondest memories, is christmas, realizing that there is just not one photo but more like constant flashes. I saw the enormous love he gave to each family member and he will be surely missed. To the entire Aji family, I am so sorry. May you all find comfort during this rough time.
