    We couldn’t get the words out today but wanted to share with everyone.

    Thank you all for coming today to honor our brother Ajay. He had the kindest heart of anyone we have ever met and always carried a smile even on his toughest days. We were so proud of him and his latest achievements in his career. He was an incredible chef, he loved fishing and spending quality time with leyah and running around after Liam. His time here with us was short but we are truly lucky to have him in our lives and will cherish every memory spent with him. He will be deeply missed by all- but he will live in our hearts for the rest of our lives. He made our lives fuller and richer just by being a part of it.

    Now that he has moved to the next part of his souls journey, of course there is emptiness and pain, even anger to a death coming so early but the gift of Ajay’s life remains here with us. He lives on in our memories and stories, and in what all of us have become because of him. So I encourage you to share –today, tomorrow and in all the years to come- your memories and stories, and to share the joy he has brought to our lives. In this way we will keep the gift of Ajay’s life alive. He once told us that every person you cross paths with teaches you something about yourself if you pay attention and Ajay has taught us how to live for today.

    We know Ajay will be our angel now and We feel extremely blessed that we had him as our brother. We only pray that he is always our brother in lifetimes to come. Love you with all our heart and soul.

  12. Woke up to this terrible news this morning. Our thoughts and love are with the family. Ajay was a close friend growing up in London, and was an absolute ray of light, I fondly remember so many great memories together.

    1. My brother Ajay was one of a kind, always had a vibrant smile and a positive attitude towards almost anything. Growing up in London with Ajay and his family shall never be forgotten. So many great memories from back then and these great times continued throughout his life in New Jersey whenever I visited him and his family. Ajay will be missed by many around the world and I know for me that things won’t be the same without him. I’ll miss talking to him and having the odd laughs now and then. But his memories shall live on forever. I love you bro and will miss you each and every day.

      Sleep well and may you Rest In Peace

      From your London brother Roopesh
