I happened to run across this. Condolences (belated) to her two beloved men whom we knew through my parents, Dr Niranjan (Boda) and Mrs Krishna Dudani, in the Boston area from the 1970s/80s. Not seen for many years, but always recall her as a gentle, smiling soul whose strength lay in her simplicity, focus, and calm. Rest in peace, dear lady.

My condolences to Dr. Shahani’s family. I was her colleague at UIC for more than 2 decades. She was a kind, insightful, dedicated pediatrician who served Illinois’ children and their families in the Department of Pediatrics and The UIC Craniofacial Center. She was a source of wisdom and expertise. May her memory be a blessing.

Condolences to the family and friends at this time of grief. The death of those we love bring much hurt and a void in our hearts. Our loving Creator has made provisions to remove all pain, suffering and death forever. (Revelation 21:3,4) Yes, the opportunity to welcome our loved ones from the sleep of death, to perfect life on a paradise earth will be a reality. Please read these heartwarming scriptures from the Bible to give you a measure of calmness. (Psalm 37:29, Acts 24:15 John 5:28 ,29)

I have very fond memories of the Worli home where aunty Sarla looked after the whole family with so much love and affection. To this day I miss her and spend many of my waking hours on the Shahani swing. I met aunty Maya in Worli during my early teens. I remember her as being an unassuming and loving person. Unfortunately I did not get to see her after that and have not had the opportunity to meet Bhagwan chacha and Robin for a long time. God give them strength to deal with their loss. Raju
