My condolences to Vik’s family, I’ve known him since 7th grade and he was such a good friend, although I rarely saw him, when I did he was always happy. We both went to Woodville and graduated together and to hear the not even a year after graduating he is gone hurt because I remember seeing him at prom and graduation practices and I honestly never saw him upset.

Sumitra, I am so sorry for the passing of Vik. I only had the pleasure of meeting him one time in the hospital, and he struck me as a handsome, brilliant, well mannered fella. For this, you should be proud. Hold onto all of the memories you shared over the years. The time he spent with us here on earth he touched many lives, evidenced by the chapel filled with people who were changed by his short life. We will be here for you when you return to Select to give you support and share a hug or two when needed. I love you and want to say I'm proud of you and the strength you showed through this time.
