    Heartbreaking, shocking and unexpected news of John D'souza. He was such a gentleman, always smiling, helpful and grounded. God alone knows the reason why he took such a drastic step. Our heartfelt condolence to John's (whom we used to fondly call Zuav) entire family. Let's pray for the deliverance of his soul, that God may forgive him and welcome him into His heavenly abode.
    May God give strength and courage to John's family to bear this untimely and irreparable loss.
    With you in grief,
    Veronica/Brian/Supriya & baby Ansh
