My younger brother, Chay (Caitanya Lila), left this world on 3/14/15 due to a double homicide outside of Atlanta, GA. This has left us in the unfortunate position of paying for his cremation ($3,500), remains being taken to India ($2,000), and other fees associated with his departure ($500). Neither of our parents are able to contribute financially, and it is a large burden on our family of six. I would appeal to all our friends and well-wishers to aid in the overwhelming expenses.
Chay was a wonderful soul who loved kirtan and prasadam. He was fiercely devoted to this movement even though he had his own struggles. He would never neglect to help someone in need and always had a kind and humorous word. He loved my kids and would spoil them every year at the Panihati Festival. He struggled with type 1 diabetes, but would not let it get him down. He will be sorely missed.
As much as we will all miss him, we know that there is never birth nor death for the soul. He is not slain when the body is slain. Surely, Lord Krsna is making nice arrangements for his devotee.
Please donate, if you have the means, or please pray extra hard for this soul's next journey.
