          I didn’t know Mr. Singh personally, but I have the great pleasure of working with his son Ajit for over a decade.

          The legacy of kindness, integrity and upstanding character Mr. Singh leaves behind in his children and grandchildren speaks to the greatness of his heart and his spirit.

          Such greatness is always gone too soon.

          My deepest condolences to his family in this difficult time. May you find comfort in your faith and the multitude of family and friends who are wrapping you with thoughts of love and support. Let us be your strength when your fails; I know I speak for more than just myself when I say “You’re not alone.”
