    Vijay was a great friend and neighbor. He always was saying hello and talking to neighbors. One of our neighbors referred to him as the Mayor of Countryside Lane. He is dearly missed.

    Vijay was a wonderful neighbor growing up. I remember playing ball with him and get some marketing gift from Kraft. Anytime I would go back to my parents he would greet me with a warm welcome. He was truly one of the kindest people in the world. He will be truly be missed.

    Vijay was a unique, learned and wonderful man. I met him at the B&N book store and frequently saw him at the neighborhood market. He was also an active member of his community church. Vijay will be greatly missed by his neighbors and friends.
    Rest in Peace dear Vijay!
