Savitri or Savi as we called her, took care of my bedridden mother in her time of need. Her loving. sensitive, and patient care is what we appreciated most in our time of need. She became more than a caretaker, she became family, and a dear friend to me. I will miss her immensely. I extend my condolences and sympathies to her loving children and grandchildren. May she rest in peace.
Sincerely, Ray, Carla and Ivan Pantophlet
