"To the family and friends, the sting of death touches the very core of our hearts and emotions.  As you reflect on the life  and passing of your dear loved one, may you  find peace in knowing that Our Creator can be a source of hope and comfort to all during  times of grief.  He also promises a hope for those sleeping in death - John 5: 28, 29;  and even death itself He will destroy!  1 Corinthians 15:26 promises, "As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing".  I am very sorry for your loss."

"The adage that time heals everything is sadly not true. The pain of Madhu's loss is no less today than four years ago. Today is my wife, Pat's, birthday and while we celebrate, we also have moments of silence and sadness for the loss of our dear friend. We extend our love to Uma and the family."

"I met Madhu in 1958 when we both entered FSU in Tallahassee seeking a Ph. D. in physics.  We bonded quickly, I appreciated his kindness, honesty and vast knowledge of India's history.  Eventually I married and we became lifelong friends with Uma and him. They had a lasting impact on our lives.  Madhu's passing was very painful for us.  He was a great friend and scientist, irreplaceable."
