Support for Shiva's Family

Last evening, on February 20th, we lost someone very dear to us. Shiva Kumar Gangadhar, a former Microsoft employee, suddenly passed away while at his home in Bothell. His wife, Sowmya and his 7 year old son, Eshan, are currently trying to retain the body in order to take it home to India to Shiva's parents and family for cremation, but the process is very expensive.

Also, Shiva was the only bread earner in his family. We would like to help raise some additional funds to support his family and for Eshan's education.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Although we may have lost Shiva, his memory will live on forever in our hearts. May he rest in peace.

Thank You,
Family & Friends
