Naga's Daughter's Support Fund

Yesterday one of our colleagues, office-mates and friends passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. Nagarajan Murugan Valliammal was a backend web developer in our India office who has worked on various bMuse and TouchCast projects since July, 2013.  

He had been undergoing treatment throughout the Fall for a heart condition. Yesterday he had a planned surgery, but unfortunately did not survive the procedure.

Naga leaves behind a wife and young daughter. He was 28.

We are all part of a family here, and when a family suffers a loss, we all grieve together.

We come from different backgrounds, we live in different countries, work across time zones, we each have our own religious and cultural traditions, our own ways of marking grief and honoring friends. But what unites us is our humanity. We stand by each other. We extend the hand of friendship, condolence and community. We help.

Our colleagues in India feel Naga’s loss directly and intensely. None of us knows exactly what to say or how to act in times like these. But let me ask each of you  - when dealing with your colleagues - to know that they are suffering, and to let them know that you care for them.

We have asked Abhi to reassure Naga’s wife and family that we will support them financially in their moment of uncertainty and need. But I would like to ask each of you to contribute to a GoFundMe fund we have established to support Naga’s daughter. Some of you know directly the bonds of family here, and have been sustained in your own moment of need. Family, grace and charity are what define us as company. Please contribute.
