Just thinking: the worst thing about my mother's funeral was that I couldn't go back and tell her all about it. She would so much have loved to hear all the details.

If only we could have the Yeti blog of Sam's memorial service. If only.

Saw this a week too late when I spotted the heading on the main page today. The initial disbelief gave way to shock and finally, extreme sadness.
Always a huge fan of his writings, it was Sam who had inspired me to take the solo trip to East Europe (Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia) which turned out to be the best 10 days of travel in my life.
Rest in peace, friend. Will miss you.

While wanting to post some thing in shifting gears thread I came across this thread.Though I had feeling that something had gone terribly wrong but I was just praying that this is also one of those thread started by Sam.My prayers were not answered unfortunately.
Rsjaurr, it is sad that Sam left us all wondering about what life really is. He will be missed and will be never forgotten. Anyways nice to see a fellow bhpian from punjab, they come in a few numbers

I never met Sam but only knew him through his unique sense of humour. People like him are the glue that bonds communities. My condolences and best wishes for his near and dear ones. RIP.

The man was so full of life that one could draw energy even from his writings.
RIP Sam. You will be missed.

RIP Sam.

Wish - we should create a "Hall of Fame" section & keep his creations (the travelogues) as a reference material for all. The passion with which they are written & the dedicated work on photos - Truly Inspiring !

People 'Live to Drive'. Great people live through their creations and drive Others.

You will truly be missed - in this forum.

My next 2 min silence is dedicated to you. RIP Sam.

I never knew who SAM was, and on my daily visit to the TBHP site I saw the message "Sam Kapsi is No more :(".
I searched the Yeti in google and on the BHP site, read all his blogs and travelouges got glued to them his blogs have left a lasting impression and makes you feel as the eye witness.
From the readings and search i did on him, I can say he was a great traveller and very efficient writer.
good people part early.
My condolences to Jenny,Inayat and his near and dear ones.
RIP SAM, People like you are scarce in the world because god calls them very early as he too wants them by his side.
You have truly lived a Yeti life.

Just logged in after a long break from team-bhp and saw this as the top post.. Do not have words to express grief.

Though like most of team-bhpians here, though we have never met, I have more or less known you through the blogs that I have managed to read and was forever amazed at the way you could blog about things so personal.

I enjoyed reading all your trips - the one that you took in a nano - was quite something, and I remember it was one of the live trip blogs on Team-BHP Ever.

RIP dear friend, may GOD provide courage to your near and dear ones to tide this untimely blow.

Fellow BHP-ians

Many of us moderators and many bhp'ians from all over were present at Sam's Rememberance Meeting.

It was a touching moment and I dare say no one left dry eyed. It was a celebration about Sam, what he liked, what he stood for, who he was, his passions and a whole lot more as spoken by people who were closest to him. A slide show depicting Sam and his various moments went on in the background and we were taken through various songs that meant a lot to him.

It was a bittersweet moving occasion

I just want to conclude this by quoting a poem composed by Navin which was read out on his behalf.

Quote:
Sam

I saw a star in the early morning sky
...It shone so bright, I thought the sun had died
I heard a laugh and it sounded just like you
Big and round and ringing loud and true

I canít believe what happened yesterday
Even bad dreams donít usually end this way
I wish there was a button called rewind
Someway we could leave this day behind

As your passing is slowly sinking in
I wonder what the days ahead will bring
I hope I can forever hear your laugh
It would be a fitting epitaph

So every night Iíll look up at the sky
Iíll find your star and say my goodbye
I never got the chance when you were here beside;
a regret that Iíll carry, till I die.

And when I hear thunder, Iíll know it that is you
making the Gods laugh, big and bold and true
And when I see lighting, Iíll know it is you
Saying ďhiĒ, in a way, only you could do

Thank you ajmat. I was hoping for reports from the service.

Navin's poem is great.
