I am so sorry for your loss and my thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.
Having only joined the team this year I feel sad that I never got to meet Shrikant in person but can see that he was a much loved and respected colleague and his presence will definitely be missed around the office. It’s lovely to read he was the life and soul of the office with his happy and helpful demeanor being one of his greatest assets along with his love of all things fancy dress. He certainly has left a lasting impression on his colleagues and will be very sadly missed by everyone.
I hope you can take comfort in reading these lovely memories of Shrikant, may he rest in peace.
