Returning to Georgia after extended travel, it is devastating to learn of Girish's untimely death. I benefited immensely from his generous spirit and warm personality over the years of our firm friendship and business connections, and shall greatly miss his always cheerful phone calls and our monthly lunches. A bright light has been extinguished.
Much love to Sarita, Tara, and Shiv.
