|Let the memory of Madhukar Bhai be with us forever|
A beloved husband, father, father-in-law, and grandfather, Madhukar Mehta passed away in Amdavad on June 28, 2010 after a brief illness. He is survived by his wife Uma, sons Sushrut and Utpal.
He played the hand he was dealt and had no regrets. Always played by the rules, he was proud of his achievements and satisfied with his life, and he always had a smile.
We will remember and miss him forever.
Your family misses you. The grandchildren are growing up fast. Rohan is in his third year of grad school and wants to be a professer. Pinku has graduated from UCLA and is going for her PhD program, Little Salil is now a big boy and a very good Soccer Player... We have one sportsman in our family now. We wish you peace."
"Our thoughts will be with the family on this sad day, however we will focus on the many good times and many treasures that Madhu shared with us that so greatly enriched our lives."
"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."
"Happy birthday dear Daddy....today we took Priyanka to her college. It was a very trying day emotionally. She prayed by your picture before leaving. Do keep her safe and watch over her. We miss your smiling face,"
"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."
"Feels like just yesterday when Madhukaka and Uma Kaki visited us, here in Bangalore....in 2000! I am blessed to have been born amdist giants.... Fondly."
Hope you are doing fine with daddu! :)"
"Yes, and Pri also loves watching Cosby Show with Ro. She is graduating from high school with honors and going to UCLA. Her subject is Cognitive science.
Sushrut has vpbeen traveling a lot so goes and visits Pune at least once a year. He brings us reports on how Salil baba is growing up.
Please watch over your grandchildren and children."
"So, as I was saying earlier, Ro has taken Math and Biology as his majors. He is also moderating quiz bowls for high schools and can get very competitive at times. Your granddaughter, Priyanka, is another character. Strong minded and very sure of her opinions. She is also very kind and helps out all her friends by tutoring them and helping them in the subjects they could use help with..."
Another year has gone by without your presence. We miss you a lot. Very often we use words that you used to say, like pizzum, and good tea!!! Your grandchildren are growing up very fast. You will be proud of all them including little Salil. Rohan, is now 21... Yes...Johan...is 21. He is a sweet and gentle boy....to be cont"
"I feel as if I am staring at an unfillable void/vacuum. How I wish we could personally wish him on his birthday. May his soul rest in peace. Sanjiv-Gayatri"
"We pray that you are at peace wherever you are! Happy 84th birthday to you."
"I loved and respected him. I shall miss him forever. God makes less of such kind, it seems, of late."
"We were thinking of you today when we passed Target! "traje..." and Rohan and Pinku were missing you!"
"Madhukar Mama, you lived the proverb "Vidya vinay thi shobhe chhe". I am proud because I am a part of a family which had you. Will miss you always."
"A person whose memories we cherish and value for his intelligence,quality of persona and love for physics. Very affectionate person. What a loss! Sanjiv-Gayatri"
"HIS DEMISE IS A GREAT LOSS TO US AS HE WAS OUR CLOSE FRIEND AND VERY KIND HEARTED VADIL. AVANINDRA - HINA"
"Madhukaka, the full moon still seems closer than on other days..... will you come to tell me and stuti again why, if we asked?....the hollow in my tummy just refuses to go..."
"Dear Madhu Kaka, you were and will always remain my favourite kaka. So many memories, so vivid and so full.... Will write again."
"pranam madhu kaka...mane haji yaad chhe tame vadodara aavta hata tyare daddu saathe ghani badhi vaato karta ane ghana badha matters ma different point of view hova thi discussions karta..miss you"
"The science community in Gujarat will miss a great nuclear scientist and a gentleman with the highest ethical values in life. May his soul rest in peace.
"We had the privilege of knowing Shri Madhukarbhai in brief meetings. He was a unique combination of high intellect, warm heart, natural sense of humor, and gentle attitudes. May God give him peace."
"Dear Daddy, We will always miss you...But you are in our hearts forever and ever. Your memories live on.
Ratna Utpal and Salil"
