August 21, 1964May 13, 2012

Esha Madeleine Bagchi-Grand (1964 -2012) Sunday May 13th, early mother’s day morning, Esha, 47, was granted her angel’s wings. Too soon and too short, in your brief stay you lit up the room, and captured the essence of life with more vibrance than is achieved in many lifetimes. Esha’s time here was lived with love, celebration, joy and authenticity. Surrounded by family and friends in her final days, we were all very lucky to have shared in and be touched by an angel that walked the earth. She gave us courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. Her presence inspired us to listen to the music and dance through the journey that is life. Esha will be sadly missed by her husband Gerard Grand her 3 wonderful children Connor, Sabrina and Maddie, Esha’s siblings Iris, Michael, Asis and all her cherished nieces and nephews, family and friends. Visitation will be held Thursday May 17th from 3-5 at HULSE & ENGLISH FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 75 Church Street (905684 6346) Followed by a Celebration of Life at St Catharines Golf and Country Club, 70 Westchester Avenue St Catharines, from 6-9 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a Trust fund set up in the name of Esha’s children, cheques can be made payable to Esha Madeleine Bagchi-Grand Inc., donations may be made through the Hulse & English Funeral Home. Online tributes may be made at

So sorry to find out about your passing.. have thought of you often over the years. We were great friends in the early years ( kindergarden and grade one ) . I still vividly remember the giant bag off puffed wheat cereal at your house with great envy .. My mom never bought cool stuff like that ! Just found a photo of us . Fond memories.

Dear Esha
A couple of days ago it was Maddies birthday. When i think of Maddie it always reminds me of the many ways in which she is like you. One of the great blessing of Maddie is that she will always bring thoughts and images of you to my mind. I revel in the honor of having shared our childhood and miss you each and every day

To Connor Sabrina and Maddie
I was fortunate to have my mother at my side well into my fifties and to this day miss her love, guidance and wisdom each and every day. It is hard to imagine the long road ahead of each one of you without your mom. Reach out to those around you when you need you are not alone. I will always be there for you. Look into your hearts and soul for there you will find the spirit of mom. Reach for each other with true love and support. Try find , cherish and nurture all that brings you together and set aside anything that divides or comes between you.

To Gerard
You helped my sister empower and discover her sense of self when she needed. May god give you the strength to deal with those challenges that lay ahead without her.

To Iris
Who gave so much of yourself to Esha find solace and comfort in the everlasting love and sister ship you shared You gave so much more than any of us ever could

To Michael
May you find the peace in your heart in dealing with the tragedies we have faced

To all in the circle of friends and family look at each other and realize - rejoice in that you were all part of the rare beautiful soul that was my sister and she apart you . The blessing is ours thou too short.

Beloved Esha
With the rock solid determination of mount Everest
With the beauty and compassion of the glowing harvest moon
With the warmth of everlasting sunshine
A golden rose on angels wings I say farewell as you go to join the spirits of our mother, father and brother who passed before you and see you once again in future if i am worthy
