Always a Gracious Word

Anuj enjoying his beloved spaghetti. Fall 2005.
"On a lovely, warm September evening some years ago, I decided to make cheese and mushroom ravioli in a tomato sauce for dinner. Anuj was working late that night, so he couldn't join us for our voayage-to-Italy meal. I packed some for Anuj to enjoy later. A week or so later, I received an email with "ravioli" in the subject line. In it, Anuj reported that he enjoyed the pillows of cheese, and appreciated that we had set them aside for him. I recall thinking that Anuj was such a gentleman for taking the time to compose a thank you note, and that he had a knack for making people feel appreciated.

It's an email I still have in my in box, along with every other email I have ever received from Anuj. I will always treasure them."

Thank you for sharing that beautiful post about dear Anuj. He truly was appreciative of everything and nothing was too small or to be overlooked. You're right - he had a knack for that - and few possess that quality.For that and much more, he is greatly missed.
With love,
Meena
