I came to know Amitahba during his Ph.D. studies at the University of Houston. He was such a warm and personable human being, as well as a talented scientist. I am honored to have known him. I send my sympathies to those closest to him as I share in their sadness that we will not see the light in his eyes again. My heart hurts for his family and also for the many, many people in his personal and professional life impacted by his passing. He is deeply missed.

Mr. and Mrs. Bhakta and Masha. I wanted to express my sincerest condolences to you and to share just a few thoughts about your son/husband.
I had the honor of managing Amitabha during his tenure at Genentech and I want you to know that not only was he an incredible employee, he was an incredible person. I have not met many people in my lifetime as kind, considerate, smart and humble as Ami. I visited him in the hospital right after his surgery and his biggest concern was that he did not want his wife and parents to be stressed about his situation. Not once did I hear him utter a word about feeling sorry for himself. I am a better person for having known Amitabha and I am certain I will never forget him. May he rest in peace.

I will miss you, Mithun.
You were the best. A kind, generous, friendly, helping, polite person, a great athlete, adventurous, photographer, always energetic, always smiling, a brilliant mind and inspiration.
There were so many countless memories and happy moments with you from our childhood, college time and thereafter.
Wish we could go back in our childhood and play, enjoy together again. You will be always in my memories and heart.
Rest in peace my brother, my best friend.

Dear Masha and Family,
Amitabha was a student in the graduate program at UH that I administer. He was so bright, and such a kind and gentle spirit. He was so loved by his classmates and friends. For me, I was very proud of the jobs that he did able to do after training with us. I also was grateful that he always thought to say hello at scientific meetings and let me know about his progress. I am so very sad for him and you that his life was cut short. His memory will live in all who knew him and thought so highly of him.
Best to you,
Laura Frishman

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
