Fundraiser for Aparna Ramakrishnan

Aparna Ramakrishnan and Girish Narayanaswamy with two beautiful boys: Hari (12) and Ram (9) came to Cincinnati, US a few years ago. They started their life in the US in Olde Montgomery. Aparna, being a great hardworking lady devoted most of her time taking care of the family while Girish traveled and worked hard for Deloitte. In 2017, they moved into Carmelle Community. Recently, Girish changed his job and started working at Milacron, Inc in Cincinnati to stay more at home. As fate would have it, their peaceful lives took an unfortunate turn, when Aparna suddenly left them for heavenly abode on Saturday, September 22, 2018, after experiencing severe shortness of breath for reasons only known to the Almighty. Girish has been left alone with two smart, handsome young boys, Hari and Ram.

Girish and his parents are still in shock and are not sure what’s going on. They are trying to stay strong as much as possible, but as we can all expect, they are having bouts of uncontrollable grief as they try to digest the reality. Their younger son is still confused, but the older one has hit hard. He is uncontrollable at times.

Girish’s in-laws are reaching Cincinnati Tuesday 9/25

Funeral Services for Aparna will be held on Thursday 9/27 commencing at 12 noon in Spring Grove Funeral Homes @ 4389 Spring Grove Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45223.
