  1. Roopechi ….. you will be missed forever and always. The beautiful moments you shared with us will always speak of a great person that you were. Rest in peace up in the heaven!

  2. Dear Mrs. Roopa,

    Tough it was a brief moment of interaction with You. I cherish the wonderful conversations we had, hard to believe that you left us all and is no more. My prayers to your family and well wishes to shower them with enormous strength to overcome this moment of grief. Satgati

  6. Dear Roopa,

    I really loved your funeral dearest. I now want to call you to discuss! As I opened the screen saver today there was a gorgeous picture of two dolphins jumping out of water. They were playing and if dolphins could laugh, I imagine they were doing that. I liked to think that was you and I enjoying our time together, feeling free to be whatever we needed to in that moment. Thank you dear one for reminding me of my own knowledge, wisdom and courage. Thank you for not letting me indulge in any feeling sorry for myself. Thank you for inspiring me to get on with it (please continue to drop those little nudges about what ” it ” iss!). Thank you for making me laugh and enjoy many things. I hear your lyrical voice, and your laugh. Imagine that the woman who I worked with all those years ago at the City of Greater Dandenong would be such a dear friend. I had no idea at the time whom the universe was putting in front of me. Thank God. What luck in life did I have to know you. Now I’m expecting that call. I’ll be waiting. And as usual, I have so much to tell you and laugh about..

    Thanks Umesh, Sid, Adele and Yad for that beautiful reminder of dear Roopa. I loved the music and the photos. We all sat here on Sunday evening in Nairobi and watched the lovely service. The kids were so sad to hear of Roopas passing. I wished they could have known her more… I will look forward to being with you all in person one day to reflect on Roopa again soon. Much love.

  7. Dear Umeshatta, Siddharth, Adele & Yadav

  10. A touching tribute. Roopechi you will be dearly missed. I’ll miss our long conversations; sometimes insightful, sometimes so funny that we laughed our heads off, and most of all your no nonsense, no drama aproach to life. I have learnt so much from you and will always be grateful. I’ll miss your thoughtful gifts. There has never been a time when the clothes you got me didn’t fit me. Always a perfect fit even though you wouldn’t have seen me in years when you went shopping. I have fond memories of you enjoying the gluten free chocolates and food I cooked specially for you. Will cherish all of those lovely times and the beautiful being you are. Our love and prayers are with you Umeshetta, Yad, Sid & Adele. Hugs. Thank you for the videos and thoughtfully sharing it with all of us.

  20. Dear Umesh, Sidhu,Yadu and Adele.
    Thank you so much for sharing the Beautiful video with us. Have no words to express our feelings after watching the video. A friendship of more than 40 years from the days in Nairobi, Roopa was a girl who left an everlasting impression in ones mind. She always visited us whenever she came to Cochin, but always stayed in touch through mails and whatsapp. The news was very shocking for both of us. She was so happy and full of life when she visited us a year ago. We pray to the Almighty to give mental strength for Umesh,Sid, Yadu and Adele to bear the loss. May her soul rest in peace. With lots of luv Vijettan and Indu chechi

  21. Dear Umesh, Sid, Adele, Yadu

    May your Memories give you strength always. Our Prayers are with you.

    Love

  22. Thank you, Neil, Yad, Sid & Adele, for allowing both my mother and I to share in farewelling Roopa with this beautiful ceremony.

    I remember so vividly some of the beautiful moments and conversations that I shared with Roopa; I always left her presence feeling more in tune with myself and aware of all of my surroundings. I will always cherish her and think fondly of her, as a beautiful being who embodied love, strength, and growth.
    I have also left some of my most fondest thoughts, feelings and memories of Roopa in writing with Yad – so I am sure he can share them with you all should you wish to view/hear/read them.

    Sending you all love, and thinking of you all at this time.

    Love, Denna & Nicole Healy

  24. It was such a beautiful and touching memorial. Roopa was a vibrant and loving person always knew what she wanted in life for herself as well as for her family.

    She was younger than me, when we used to go to kannur for our holidays we would wait anxiously for Roopa to visit us which was usually on the weekend as she stayed at her grandmothers house, she used to entertain us with all sorts of funny stories.
    I recall a very funny incident she had narrated about the farm, one day she had gone there with Yadu they found the gates open and there were a lot of goats on the land so both of them literally had to run all through the land chasing them out. She said it was such a funny scene and she had aches and pain from all that running for days.
    All those incidents mentioned of her childhood were so true, Roopa was a real tomboy and could get anybody in trouble.

    My mom was very found of her, Roopa really took care and showed her many place in and around Melbourne, they drove to Sydney, Roopa also made her an album with all the pictures of her trip, she was that thoughtful.

    She will be always be watching over you’ll Umesh, Sidharth, Adele and Yadu and thankyou so much for sharing these videos with us.. May her soul rest in peace. Love you Roopa will miss you.. Lekhaachi.

  25. To Neil , yad , sid, and Adele I will miss Roopa I only new Roopa for a short while but she made a huge impact in my life she was the most beautiful courageous fun lady the storeys she told me I will always remember even when she was having a bad day she still managed to laughed and make me smile with her she was truely amazing and my heart goes out to each and every one of you r.i.p Roopa beautiful lady fly high xxx
