As the newest addition to the family, Kamlesh Jijaji welcomed me with open arms. We shared a geographic bond as, interestingly, we attended the same high school (a couple decades apart). Beyond this, I was drawn to him by his willingness to spend time getting to know me along with his infectious laugh and relaxed disposition. In this brief encounter I learned a great deal about this man - someone who puts family and friends first, has a genuine soul and a zest for life. I wish I could have spend more time with him and send my deepest condolences to Kashmiraben, Meera and Devi.

I knew Kamleshbhai from our association at the India cultural center and temple (ICCT). He volunteered on various occasions through the past few years in the kitchen cooking and helping with preparing food. He was a devoted person, always had a pleasant smile. Shocking to hear this sad news of his demise. May God help his soul reach greater heights!

It was a shock on hearing the news. I may not have many memories with him, but Kamlesh uncle was always humble and carried a smile on his face. It is a difficult time for the whole Dadhaniya family and we all grieve for this loss. Deep condolences to Kashmira bhabhu, Meera and Devi.

We all pray to Shree Krishna for his soul to attain eternal refuge in his holy abode.

Jai Shree Krishna.
