Condolence From: Suzy Eppling
Condolence: I had the pleasure of meeting Sunil at the OrigamiUSA convention this past summer. We were both attending the event with a child and were assigned to room together. I recall that Sunil arrived late at night and was greeted by a flooded room. I think something had gone wrong with the ac. Despite this inconvenience, he was upbeat. He enthusiastically offered me some Indian snacks that he had prepared and busied himself cutting long strips of paper. He had invented a way to knot paper into a beautiful model and was looking forward to teaching others how to make it. I hope his positive spirit lives on in other origami enthusiasts when they fold the “Knotty Blossom.”

Condolence From: Raghu Jagadam
Condolence: My name is Raghu. I am from the Chicago area. I was shocked to hear the news of his passing. My deepest condolences to the family members. The first time I met Sunil was when we shared a hotel room at the Kumon Vancouver Conference. That was my first Kumon Conference. He gave me some tips on how to run a Kumon center.

We then went to visit a couple of places around Vancouver on the last day of the conference. I met him at every Kumon Conference after that. I will upload the photos with him once I find them.

Again, my deepest condolences to the family. May his soul rest in peace.

Condolence: Dear Hemal and all Dhavalikars,

It is really a shocking news of Sunil's passing away suddenly. We knew him since long when our daughter Pratima started her own 'Kumon' and since they started 'Suma Food'. Last we saw him during screening of 'Kasav' film in NJ but could not meet him as he was on stage and with dignitaries.
WE pay our tributes to the departed soul and pray that his soul rest in peace. Our heartfelt condolences to you and both sons.

Condolence From: Rajesh Selukar
Condolence: I have known Sunil for a long time because he was a close friend of my older brother, Ashok. We came to US (he to NJ and me to NC) about the same time (early 80s). Because Sunil lived close to major airports (JFK, Newark, ..) and a major city (NY), I ended up visiting Sunil, and after his marriage Sunil and Hemal, numerous times. In fact, during 80s and early 90s I am sure Sunil and Hemal lived in a constant fear that I will show up at their home for a multiday stay! Needless to say, Sunil and Hemal have been part of many important moments in my life. I will mention just two of these here. In their first US visit in 89, my parents got to see NY in a very leisurely fashion because Dhavalikars hosted us for more than a week. They lived in Jersey City at that time. My parents have very fond memories of that stay. After my marriage in India, Vanashree (my wife) and I were picked up from the Newark airport by Sunil. That is, Vanashree’s first few days in the US were at Dhavalikar’s! After all this description of my association with Sunil and Hemal one might rightly assume that we have been in regular contact. However, that is not the case. Even though we got regular news about each other through our common contacts, actual meetings or phone conversations between us have been quite infrequent in recent years. Mainly the life became quite busy for all of us. In fact, the last time I saw Dhavalikars was when a few years ago they (including Charu and OM) briefly stopped at our place on their way to Atlanta (I think). Even though very brief, this visit was lot of fun. It was the first time I saw Charu and Om as adults. I was pleasantly surprised by how easily they took us as their friends. I always assumed that after the life became a little less busy (particularly for Dhavalikars) there will be many occasions to meet and have relaxed get-togethers. Sunil’s unexpected passing has saddened me a lot. I am not a religious person and I don’t know the meaning of life. However, I do understand the importance of friendships. I want to tell Hemal, Charu, and Om that they are always in my thoughts. We will have many get-togethers and will remember Sunil.

Condolence From: Pushkar & Shalaja Medhekar
Condolence: Dear Hemal, Charu, Om, Tatya, Prasad, Ravi and All Dhavalikars:

Our heartfelt condolences. I knew Sunil from our Fergusson college days. He was always full of energy and ready to help all. I still remember, the help Sunil and Hemal provide, when I landed in USA for first time in 1987.

I will be there in New Jersey on Saturday to pay my last respect to a true friend.

Pushkar and Shalaja.

Condolence From: Vinnakota Family
Condolence: I can't believe he is not here. He was such a great mentor not only to our son. He shared his life experiences as a parent and guided me and my husband when we were having trouble with our teen. It was always pleasant and inspiring to talk to him. He will be missed by all who were in his life even for a brief moment. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends. I am glad I got a chance to get to know such a great person...
