We always felt inspired by the annual visits of the Aarons to our friendly neighbours, Geetha and Augustine in Coimbatore, India. We will ever remember his gentle greetings and the blessing he used to send through a mere waving of hand. Rest in peace Sir and our deepest condolences to the family.

We miss you very much, our dear brother, Aaron. You were always cheerful,kind and loving. Our fond memories of your interesting conversations and helpful nature,will be remembered forever. Whether it was a game of Scrabble or Caram, you always won. And, you were a walking dictionary. With aching hearts we bid 'good-bye' to you, with the only hope that one day "we shall meet on that Beautiful Shore".
May the good Lord comfort & strengthen the hearts of all our family members.

Saheb brought me from India about 55 years ago and what little I have accomplished, personally and professionally, is largely attributable to his love, guidance, and support. How can I express the loss in words? Miss you tremendously. Shanthima, Tete, and Kutti, be strong and heartfelt condolences.

It has been our honor to know Aaron for the past ten years since he and Shanthi came to WGC. We all became close friends. I will always remember Aaron as a quiet, kind and considerate man. It was my great pleasure to travel to India with them, to tour his native country and his original family home.
It is good to know he is rejoicing with other believers who proceeded him to Heaven. We will see you again someday dear friend P.G. Aaron❣
