Meharam Sugrim Celebration of Life
REST IN PEACE, MEHARAM SUGRIM
October 25,1951- February 12, 2019
Dear family and friends,
Our beloved father, husband, brother and dear friend left this world at 8:30PM on 12 Feb 2019, in the presence of his loved ones. As most of you know, the last six years of his life have perhaps been his most difficult. To see him pass in a peaceful setting and to leave this world with a gentle smile is a great gift to us, and is most deserving for a man of his character.
His funeral is set for Wednesday February 20th, 1:30 PM, at the Valley View Funeral Home in Surrey, BC; followed by a ceremony commencing at the Lakshmi Narayan Madir, 8321 140th Street, Surry at 4:30 PM; then by a 13 day religious service at his home residence.
Your support and presence means much to us during this time.
One of many great things Meharam has imparted on us is a taste and appreciation for great music, particularly Hindi cinema’s golden years. We are sharing a YouTube and Spotify playlist of some of his favourite songs. I can still hear him singing these to us children on many a car rides.
Playing these songs for my father has helped him in releasing and us in the grieving process.
Meharam’s Celebration of Life Music
Meharam was a selfless man. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you donate on his behalf to a charity of your choice or to Seva Canada.
For every $50 received, a blind individual in a developing country will receive a surgery that will restore their eye sight – Seva Canada
