Our most sincere condolences for your loss Shoba, Adam, Shaun and Alisha.

Your mother was a lovely woman and always warm and kind to my kids when they would spend time with Shaun or swim in the pool.

Thoughts for you at this difficult time.

I've just learned of Lakshmi's passing. I was a Bharatanatyam student of hers with Renu (Cherian) & Lesley (Rajan) when we were in our teens. She prepared us for our Arengatram by being such a constructive teacher and pushing us to be better than we thought we could be. I remember how hard we all worked and how much she helped us become better dancers. There will always be a special place in my heart for her.

No words can describe how very sorry I am for your loss. My sincerest condolences to you all.

Dear Rang, Shoba and family,
Although we can hardly fathom the full intensity of your profound grief and sorrow, our warmest thoughts are with you at this particularly trying time. Lakshmi was always a very special person to us --- one with whom we shared so many exciting adventures and enjoyable moments. She will be dearly missed but also remembered with great fondness and deep affection.

Shoba, we were so sorry to hear of the passing of your dear Mother. I only met her once but was very impressed with her charm and intellect. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family, love John & Marcia Douglas
