Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of Lalito. I unfortunately didn't know him well but my parents and older sister and brother always spoke fondly of him. He would visit with my dad often when he was hospitalized. I talked with him during those moments and found him to be a very caring individual. Our Lord comfort his family during this difficult time. May he rest in Peace.
