My beloved baby girl, Shasti, and I shared almost eight years together until she passed on, on September 14, 2012. She was the absolute love of my life and my best friend. She came first.

Shasti was diagnosed with a sarcoma of the jaw in November, 2010. She passed on, not because of the cancer, but because her beautiful little heart gave out.

I learned so much from her; such bravery, courage, dignity, and honour. It was my very great privilege to have been of service to her, and to become her parent/guardian. I am very proud to say that both Shasti and I gave each other our unconditional love.
