In Loving Memory Shardaben Vishnuprasad Vyas

 DOB: 23.5.1924 (Vaso, India)    Demise: 23.8.2015 (Hatch End, London)

It is with great sadness that we share the bad news on the passing of our beloved and respected mother Shardaben Vishnuprasad Vyas, aged 91. Shardaben passed away peacefully with her family beside her on Sunday 23rd August 2015. She was a kind, generous, selfless and good natured soul and our loss is irreplaceable. She had a humorous nature, loved her family and friends, and everyone enjoyed her company. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her presence will be greatly missed and we will cherish her memories forever. We wish to convey our sincere gratitude to all our relatives, friends and well-wishers across the world for their support and comfort. It means a great deal to us. We all pray for her soul and may she rest in peace.
