Life is so unpredictable & fragile - Early Saturday morning, Siddhartha Ghosh AKA Sid passed away suddenly and unexpectedly due to massive cardiac arrest with-in moments at an age of 40yrs. Sid was married to Atashi, had a beautiful 2yrs old daughter Ira with loving old parents back in India. He was very capable, committed, enthusiastic and a helpful person. Sid was a dedicated husband, loving son, father of 2yrs old cutie pie and a great friend with an everlasting cheerful smile.
With all of the emotional pain, anxiety and stress that a death brings to the family especially for such unforeseen incident, it also brings financial burdens to take the bodily remains to the homeland and give an opportunity to the old parents & extended family to see him and perform last rights. We are trying to raise money for Atashi and her daughter to help with any costs that will be incurred and to help wherever needed to lighten the burden. As a community, friends and colleagues, we want to ease any stress on the family caused by outstanding costs of taking bodily remains to India for reuniting with parents and extended grieving family and whatever little things comes afterwards as future expenses.
It is in these times of loss and sadness when you see people & community coming together to help one another make it through, to support the people we care for. We are thankful for any support you may be able to provide - all donations will go directly to wife Atashi. We also encourage everyone to keep him and his family in their thoughts and prayers.
