I just learned today of the passing of my dear ex mother in law who I loved and cherished. She was not only a beautiful person but loved by all that met her. She was full of life and loved her family dearly as they loved her! I am so very thankful for her continuing love, friendship and for all that she did for everyone. May she RIP over the beautiful rainbow 🌈. I loved you so very much and am so sorry that I didn’t get to say goodbye, but you will forever be in my heart ❤️.

Dear Mayaben. You are my true inspiration, I have learned a lot from you, you have always inspired me for positive thinking towards life and you always told me to learn to live life on your own and never depend on anyone unless it is absolute necessary. You have treated me like your daughter starting from days in Mumbai. While growing up, I always thought you were the most beautiful woman, like a film star. I remember my childhood days in Mumbai, driving in a car to Kohlapur for your wedding, then spending time with Cookie in Mumbai when he was a baby, then visiting England, visiting all your residents in U.S.A, spending great time at family reunions and weddings, I have countless memories with you. Most important, you were there when I needed you the most was during Chiman’s heart surgeries. I feel fortunate to spend such a valuable time with you at different stages in my life and I will always treasure these memories. Thank you for your love and support, you have written an amazing life story for all of us and we will cherish that everyday by your presence in our life and share it with others. My love to you forever.

Mayatai, we remember you attending Ashwin's wedding in 2015 in Costa Rica. You did the tour afterwards which was somewhat physically demanding as well. Chhaya and I were fond of you and missed seeing you in person recently due to your poor health. However we had you in in our. thoughts and prayers. May your soul achieve Moksha.

Maya Mami, we will all miss you so so much! As mom always said, you were her second mom and she loved you dearly, more than words can describe. Dad confided in you as a true sister. Priti always said how you were a calming presence that made her feel grounded whenever we got back from your house. And I will never be able to replace all the stimulating convos we've had...from just reminiscing about memories from the Marsh St house to politics to medicine to psychology to making me go through all the settings on your iPhone because you wanted to know what each meant and did :) And Nirvaan has been asking to go to Maya Dadi's house non-stop the past few months because even he felt that your presence was a sanctuary at some level. Thank you for being you and blessing us all with your presence. We'll always be thinking about you. Love you Little Lady!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My beautiful Mayakaki, I will always miss you and remember your thoughtfulness and care you showed whenever I sought your advice. You have been a great sounding board and well ahead of your times in offering your solutions to problems. You understood me well and the dynamics of my family. Will truly miss our chats and your patience. You have a special place in my heart ❤️

Dr. Patel employed me as her house cleaner from the beginning of when I began my services alone in approximately 1984 on and off, As I worked for her we started such a nice bond and I began to know her family, especially her 2 sons (Cookie and Nick) I cherished our tea time together and she would offer me something to go along with it. She was quite an amazing woman, gave me great advice that I will always remember. Rest In Peace, Dr. Patel. Love always, your friend Monica

To Maya’s family: We feel sad that our friends (and the world) have lost a kind soul who always thought of others first. Maya was a role model of how we should treat others. If we hadn’t talked for awhile, there would be a text message asking about how we and are children were doing. Maya will be missed. Love Debbie & Bachu
