Never in a million years did I imagine I would be delivering this speech. But such is life. There are
certainly answers for such incomprehensible circumstances. And I am ok with knowing that I will
probably never get those answers in this lifetime.
Where do I even begin to talk about the most wonderful soul a family could be blessed with?
Megeshen loved and lived with great purpose. He lived for my girls and I. But more than that, he
exuded a magnetic presence that made everyone around him want to love life as much as he did.
Sure, he gave me more than a few grey hairs with the outrageous things he was always wanting to
do. But he was always so animated and excited about the next bright idea he had. And I never had
the heart to nor the will to deny him any opportunity that life presented to him. I stood by his side
and lived a wonderful life with him, our girls and our friends who have become family here in
Megeshen and I shared a bond and a love for the last 22 years of his life and there is no doubt that I
will spend the rest of my days loving him no less. In true Megeshen style, our first date was to a drag
racing event in Margate. But I am pleased to say he spent all of that day looking at me, even when a
superboss race was on. For those of you that know him, you will know how significant that was.
He was fiercely loyal and protective of anyone he loved. But even though he was protective, one of
the things that will always stand out, is that he allowed me to be completely me. We never tried to
change each other and we never doubted our love, ever. He would always write me letters
throughout our time together and would make a big deal of special days and celebrating life every
opportunity he had. A lot of the times he celebrated for no good reason too. And I am so glad he did.
He taught me how to live joyously. My life began when I met him. It was a wonderful road we
travelled. But I take comfort in my belief that soulmates find each other over and over again in each
lifetime. People ask me if I am angry. I am not. I feel honoured and privileged to have been entrusted
by our supreme being to love him and cherish him during his fleeting path on this earth. In Hinduism,
we believe that we come to earth to serve our Karma. He was a genuinely good man and the mere
fact that he had such a short life tells me that he didn’t have much sin to pay for in this world.
Little did we know that morning,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide
And though we cannot see you,
You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken
And nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.
There are two moments I will remember forever: The moment we met and the moment of your last
I promised to love you for the rest of my life, how bittersweet it is to know that you loved me for the rest of yours
Until we meet again, I will love you forever.
