Michelle, you crossed my path in Bangkok and eventually became a friend. Your smile, your joy and happiness filled everywhere you passed. You loved life and people but most of all you loved your parents, your family and Texas! We were fortunate you visited Brasil when my husband was terminally ill. You made him laugh again; we stayed up all night for Carnaval, then headed for the beach and fell asleep on the sand. Best Carnaval! Thank you for sharing your too short life; thank you for always being positive, kind and thoughtful. You are greatly missed.

In looking thru some old photographs, I can across these of  Somnath “Sam” Sen. We lived in the same apartment building, (Maharaja Ct) in 1970-71 and shared a love of the Beatles.  A friend, who shared his gentle but thoughtful sense of humor with us.

I just found out that one of our own, Somnath “Sam” Sen ’71, passed away on 1/28/20 at Vanderbilt hospital, in Nashville, TN. I don’t have any details but I used to see and talk to Sam during my 25 year stint in Nashville. I spoke to him around the time of our reunion in Nashville 2018, but he was trying to recover from the recent loss of his wife, and didn’t feel like socializing. Here is a youtube link on a tribute video to Sam. Sam’s friend Gary used a track of Fire and Rain that he recorded of Sam playing and singing.
