My Dear Angel Varun,
It’s been a month since you left us on 28 August, 2022. You left behind your dreams, aspirations and thoughts, but your cheerful smile will always be with us.
You are always there in my heart and you are proving that by motivating me to come up and live life. You are showing your presence by being in my dreams and thoughts and pushing me whenever I feel low.
I always followed you. You taught me to be fearless, honest and timely.
You always lived life to the fullest and made use of every opportunity to be creative – like with crafts, music or drawing. I am trying to enforce these teachings of you in my life.
We are also trying to fulfill your dreams and aspirations to make you happy and cheerful as you always are.
We miss you always. But we know that wherever you will be, you will be spreading your cheerful smile and inspiring everyone.
Your Loving Brother,
