I can't begin to thank everyone enough for the amazing support being shown for the Tandel family. We reached our first goal of $1,000 on the first day and now have reached our second goal of $5,000 in our second day! I am confident we can reach our third goal and further goals as time goes on. I will be posting an update in the next few days or so about how we will be giving the family these generous donations. ALL of it will go to the family! On behalf of the entire 2010 class, THANK YOU again for of all the donations, big or small it all helps! Like I have said before, nothing will take away the pain from the loss, but we hope to keep Sheetal and Nisha's memories alive and support the Tandel family through this extremely painful time.

Thank you everyone for your support! $1000 in less than 24 hours amazes me. Nothing will be able to replace the loss the Tandel family is feeling, but this will help to provide support to the family in this time of hardship.

The Notre Dame High School community has suffered a sudden and tragic loss of Sheetal Tandel, Class of 2010, and her sister Nisha Tandel, Class of 2006, in an automobile accident on Highway 101 last Friday, November 23.

 

Nisha who was to be married in India Janary was killed instantly. Her sister, Sheetal died Friday evening at 8:30pm at Stanford Hospital. Four other members of the family - Arvind Tandel, his wife, Yogita, their daughters Payal, Notre Dame Class of 2008, and Ayushi, a student at St. Dunstan School, remain hospitalized at Stanford Hospital and Santa Clara Valley Mediclal Center in San Jose. Yogita, who suffered major injuries, is in critical condition at Stanford Hospital. Arvind, Payal, and Ayushi suffered moderate to minor injuries and are hospitalized at Valley Medical Center. The family had been shopping for gifts in Gilroy to take with them to India for Nisha's wedding.

 

We, the NDB Class of 2010 have set up this donation page to create a memorial for both Nisha and Sheetal and provide financial support for the family. The money will be specifically used for an engraved water globe and additional financial support to the family in their times of hardships. The Notre Dame Belmont Knights Class of 2010 will forever be connected to Sheetal. She was such a brightening presence in our high school experience, always beaming with excitement and laughter. The loss of her and her sister is devastating, shocking, and saddening. We, as a class, have come together in an effort to celebrate Sheetal while offering financial support to her family. Sheetal, you will always be apart of this knighthood, and we will never forget, together we are uknighted.

 

Please keep Sheetal, her sister Nisha, and the Tandel family in your prayers.

My heart goes out to Sheetal & Nisha's family. Even though I wasn't that close with Sheetal, just knowing the fact that I lost a fellow sister, a fellow knight, a young woman that took part in one of the most influential and important stages of my life was suddenly taken away, i can only feel sadness. Sheetal was one of the first people I knew going into NotreDame, and she was a joy. It's saddening looking back upon this, and knowing it honestly wasn't so long ago...back to when we were joking around at the lunch tables outside the main hall. And even up until now, I can remember her so clearly, just asking me how I'm doing, if I'm still running, if I finished the homework for our next class, it's scary. Again, I can only pray and do all that I can to support the Tandel family for very unfortunate loss. Sheetal and her sister Nisha will definitely be missed, and never forgotten.
