Dear Giriraj Swami,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Thank for all your blessings and prayers. My mother always took pride in serving you in India and South Africa throughout the 1980s and ’90s. We are blessed to have had such a wonderful mother and are also eternally grateful for the personal time you have given our family over the years. Her dream was always to visit you in Santa Barbara. Due to her poor health, which she kept confidential, she was unable to do so.
We managed to give her a wonderful apartment by the sea in the Jewish area of Sea Point, Cape Town. She always loved the ocean and enjoyed having discussions on the promenade along the beach with the passersby and elderly by preaching and discussing Krishna consciousness.
I will miss her cooking, as well as my long discussions with her. No son could ask for a better mother.
