Ramya is my sister and she’s not like that. Always stood by me and this is painful. I want him alive to read this. Be part of my life.He is the greatest soul I’ve ever met. Most postive soul. Kept everyone around him happy.When people recognised him and wanted to say a hi to him or take a picture, they would just be hesitant and he would go to them and talk just to make them happy.
