For it is best if I pass you by

deeda e tar ka ab to akhgar ek sa alam rehta hay
nala e shab say ahe sehar tak, ahe sehar say agay bhee...

My grandmother, Mehmuda Begum, passed away this morning, 3/14/2006 - 14 Safar, 1427

inna lillah wa inna 'ilayhi raji'un
to Allah We belong, and to him We will return'

She was a wonderful woman; a great mother and even a greater grand mother. She
migrated with her husband from India
in 1947 and raised her 5 daughters, my aunts and my mother with immense
struggle and hardships in a newly founded country.  Naani Jan,  you'll be very much missed.
