    I met Jagjit’s family in 1982 through their relative, a friend of mine from my university days in India. We became friends before we knew it. It was because of his open, honest, easygoing, sincere and helpful nature.
    This sudden news about his passing is shocking. It is unbearable pain and loss for his wife, his children, grand children and friends.
    Let us pray to God to bless peace to his soul and bestow strength to his loved ones to overcome this tragedy .
    Best Regards, Harbhajan Ghumman

                    “If tears could build a stairway
                    And memories were a lane
                    We would walk right up to Heaven
                    And bring you back again
                    No farewell words were spoken
                    No time to say goodbye
                    You were gone before we knew it
                    And only God knows why
                    Our hearts still ache in sadness
                    And secret tears still flow
                    What it meant to lose you
                    No on will ever know
                    But know we know you want us
                    To mourn for you no more
                    To remember all the happy times
                    Life still has much in store
                    Since you’ll never be forgotten
                    We pledge to you today
                    A hallowed place within our hearts
                    Is where you’ll always stay“

                    • Meena and Heidi

                      As we look back, we find ourselves wondering…
                      Did we remember to thank you enough for all you have done for us?
                      For all the times you were by our sides to help and support us…
                      To celebrate our successes, to understand our problems and accept our defeats?
                      Or for teaching us by your example the value of hard work, good judgement, courage and integrity?
                      We wonder if we ever thanked you for the sacrifices you made to let us have the best?
                      If we have forgotten to show our gratitude enough for all the things you did, we are thanking you now.
                      And we are hoping you knew all along, how much you meant to us.

                                A soul taken too soon, I am honoured to have known Uncle for the majority of my adult life and seen his drive and passion for life. Uncle was a kind soul known to many, including my family and had a lasting positive impact on all of us and will be greatly missed. Uncle’s strong exterior was no match for the giant teddy bear this man was and the warm that was carried. There are no words for the loss felt and the heart ache experienced – Uncle will truly be missed. Condolences from the Sidhu Family.
