Jenny, your words brought out the tears in my eyes again. Sam is right up there in the sky, the brightest star I see in the sky every night is none other than Sam and it would be so till eternity. Diya for Sam, today and always.

Jenny,

In 1988 a few days before Diwali I lost my father. I was 25. For 25 years my dad had been my guiding light. He gave me my love of music, encouraged me to build amplifiers and speakers (before I was a teen) and funded my mad ideas ( many of which tripped the voltage lines in our apartment). Through all my troubles: my dyslexia, my rebellion, and my successes he was beside me. When he passed, i felt alone, the light of my life was gone. I did not play music for months after. I never lit a diya after that day.

It is lovely to see that you have found it in you to post here. Sam had a gift. The gift of friendship. Even those who have not met him feel his loss, such was the power of his friendship. He understood the power of The Force, he was a true Jedi.

So after 24 Diwalis I will light a diya. Just one because there will always be only ONE Sam. I wish you all the best in your life. No words can describe your loss but I think I speak for all BHPians when I say that we will always be there for you and we will try to live our lives Sam-size.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft star-shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Dear Jenny, I will think of you both as I light the lamp today.

I'll remember how much light you both gave to the world, and I'll be glad that your brought your light, one day that seems a long time ago now, on a brief visit to my house.

HAPPY DIWALI Sam and Jenny.

Sam Kapasi is NO MORE :(-20121113982.jpg

That one's for you Sam.

Could not get myself to write an obituary. Just did not seem right. He is still here. In his writings, in our thoughts, in our way of life and in his eternal love for TheOne.

Thanks Sam and Jenny, we lived a life through you guys and now Sam will live the rest of it through us.

Jenny, it really is heartening to see you post here. I'm pretty sure everyone on the forum is glad that God has given you enough strength and courage to start walking through it all.

That thread of your first visit to India is still saved in my browser bookmarks. It is by far the nicest and most remarkable piece I have read all my my life, and Sam's love for you, and life could not be put down in a better setting of words. You guys were, and will always be TheCouple® for all of us here, God bless!

Visiting TBHP after a long break. I saw the title of this thread and thought that it must be a joke or something. Alas, it's not. I hardly ever interacted with the Yeti, yet I feel very sad right now. My sincere condolences to Jenny and Sam's family. I wish you peace and strength.

Deep Condolences ...

Had met Sam once at Bangalore, sometime in the year 2006 when I was buying JBL speakers at Sound Factor, Lavelle Road Bangalore, had a brief conversation.

A Lively man he was.
To me, If there was a man who lived life to the fullest, it was ONLY YOU.

Miss YOU & your presence here.

I've been reading his posts for many years and I cant believe this happened.
His travelogues are something I'll always remember!
My deepest condolences.
Rest in peace, Sam :(
