Raise Money for Ananth's funeral

Our friend Ananth Narayanan fondly called 'Meesapettai' by his friends passed away on Tuesday Mar 20th 2018. He received his doctorate from The Ohio State University in 2012, and led an illustrious professional life as a researcher in the field of Integrated Biomedical Sciences at Ohio State and at the University of Missouri. He was a kind, gentle and soft spoken soul, and a die hard buckeye! His sudden demise has left his family and friends in shock. Ananth is survived by his Mother Vijayalakshmi Narayanan (from Chennai, India) who is a senior and is over 65 years old. We are raising money towards his funeral expenses and his mom's travel to the United States to send her son off.  Any donation towards this cause is much appreciated.

Special thanks to the Indian Community in Columbia Missouri. Without their efforts and 24/7 help & guidance this funeral would not have been possible.
Words will not do justice to the effort care & humanity displayed by them. Very privileged to have met all of them. Wish it was under different circumstances.

Also Special thanks to Nishat Thimmri (Close Friend of Ananth Narayanan) for managing this campaign & collecting and tranferring the  funds to Ananth's Mother
Mrs. Vijayalakshmi.

For all those who can attend and want to pay their respects, here are the funeral details.
