Dear Priti and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I met your father just once or twice, and my impression was of a kind and gentle man. I think I also know him by the people who loved him and whom he influenced - Priti, Jim, Kishori and Saurin. His reflection in these people shows integrity, intelligence and compassion - how fortunate wou were to have him in your lives and vice versa. You are in my thoughts and I wish you peace.

Rashmi was such a kind and sweet man, and so sharp. I always enjoyed seeing him during his visits to Los Angeles. I consider myself very lucky to have known him for the past 16 years. My heart goes out to his family and especially Alpita in Los Angeles where he and Saroj came to visit during the winters. Blessings and strength to his whole family.

Rashmibhai was a good friend and we will miss him. We were fortunate to have him and Sarojben as our neighbors for the last 27 years. We will miss talking to him. We will also miss seeing him sitting in his garage going through his mail and working in the yard. Our deepest condolences to Sarojben, Priti, Jim, Alpita, Seetal and Aaron. May God give you strength.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Rashmibhai will be missed dearly. A pure, kind hearted, and selfless soul who always had a genuine smile on his face that resonated deeply in your heart. We have known Rashmibhai for about 20 years but I worked very closely with him on the Temple Project. His discipline, devotion, and love for the community inspired all of us. Even though soft spoken and gentle, he was a brave soul who always stood up for what is right. Rashmibhai was family, friend, mentor, and elder brother to me. We are very fortunate to have known him. May the departed soul rest in peace. May God give strength to his family to bear this loss.
Otis Hilbert left a message on August 3, 2018:
It was a privilege to have know Rashmi, if only for the time since Priti and Jim met. In that all-too-short span of time, I came to know and appreciate a man truly deserving of all many good words people use to describe him: wise, generous,thoughtful,devoted,loving, honest,honorable and on and on. A word I would use is caring because I saw Rashmi’s caring personality in everything he did - especially things involving his family, of which I am proud to be a member. Rashmi instilled in each of us a sense of caring for each other. I see it every day and I am grateful to Rashmi. Rest In Peace, my friend. /Otis
