Shree Hemal Kantilal Ghaghada of Jamnagar, India

Eulogy for Son

In loving memory of our beloved son Hemal


Words cannot adequately describe the meaning and value of Hemal's short life. We are so very proud of Hemal. Hemal found his own direction and accomplished more meaningful things in his short life. In only 21 years he has touched the hearts of all here and many who could not be here. Our hearts are so sad now without Hemal.


Hemal’s life was simple, religious and friendly. Feeding the cows daily before he will have his own food and going to Haveli for prayers was his daily  routine.


Upon hearing the news of Hemal’s demise, our relatives, friends and the Bank of India staff came to us to offer their condolences and supported us at the time of need. The death announcement was made to the Parajiya Pattni community through


Shree Pranbhai Dhanak, Editor/Webmaster of the Pattni Connection website made the announcement on the website, sent the circular with his own personal tribute and also opened the book of condolence. There was an outpouring of support and condolences worldwide on the loss of our beautiful son Hemal by e-mail, telephone and through the Pattni Connection Book of Condolence.

Our son Hemal has gone Home now to serve God. If we understand as Hemal understood the important things in life - family, friends, love, laughter and our Hindu faith; we will join him there someday.
