Raj was my dearest, honest, loving, and very helpful, sister. She was my best friend and I could confide anything with her. She always had the best advice to give me. She was always a peaceful person and when there was a problem she settled it peacefully. She was the best cook and seamstress that I know. She always carried a smiling face and I am very proud of her. She was always loved by all and mostly loved the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank god that he has blessed me with such a wonderful sister and her husband and children are a blessing to me. She will surely will be missed by all. May God rest her soul.
