My heart is so sad. Dr Pati was my neighbor, my colleague at work, and a model of kindness. I have been missing periodically joining him on his daily walks; walks which extended beyond my own time and endurance limitations! When Dr. Pati and I worked in a difficult work environment, I could always count on him when needing support taking ethical and principled stands. He was a faithful friend and colleague, very kind, and fun to be with. Thank you for having shared a small part of your life with me.
I was so sad to hear that Dr. Pati has passed. He was a frequent visitor to my former workplace, and everyone there loved him. He brightened our day each time he came in with his positive attitude and presence. I still remember a conversation he and I had about dancing and how important it is for happiness and health. I remember his being an avid walker, and often saw him walking around Salem. The world is a better place because Dr. Pati was in it. He uplifted everyone he met and was an amazing example of how to live a great life!
