Ladies and Gentlemen.
I would like to thank everyone for attending my father's funeral ceremony. It is a depressing moment for my family along with my relatives. My mother has lost the loving care of an ideal husband. As his children, we have lost a great father and our children have lost their beloved grandfather. There would be times when I would arrive home late and my father would wait anxiously for my return. I will never see him sitting on the porch waiting for me to come home. I will always cherish this memory forever.
My father's name is Anil Baran Das. He was born in 1934 in Chittagong district of Bangladesh. He was the fourth child of his family. His father's name was late Aparna Charan Das and his mother's name was late Urbashi Debi. My father was a high school graduate. After high school, my father was eager to achieve higher education in medical science but the path to success was halted because of financial crisis. Although he was not able to achieve his education, he began to work extremely hard in many places in the city of Chittagong to make money for his family. In the meantime, he was married to my mother (Shova Rani Das) whose father was a famous Homeopathic Doctor whose name was Dr. Rabothi Romon Dev. As my father realized the works of my grandfather as a popular doctor, he was self-motivated to become a Homeopathic doctor. He learned the ways of Homeopathy for ten years and established himself as a homeopathic doctor. Ever since I was a little boy, I saw my father as a remarkable doctor and a provider for his community. If there is ever a crisis within the family, whether it is financial or emotional, he would always be there to assist and spread happiness to every person. His form of attitude towards his relatives and others helped him become a well-known doctor, and friend in his community. My father was a brave man with the thirst for knowledge but he never had the chance to achieve higher education. For this reason, he suffered and had to perform back breaking tasks to put food on the table for his family. He did not want me to suffer the same fate so he continuously encouraged me to become educated and go to University and did not allow me to make money for the family until I completed my degree. Due to his encouragement, I, along with my three brothers and my sister established ourselves as educated personals.
My father was always positive and never allowed negativity to enter his life. His love for children was beyond imaginable. He loved to make people laugh. He was a man of religion. His favorite hobby was fishing and he always favored fish and vegetables over anything. He would enjoy music and liked to perform in cultural programs when he was young.
He came to the United States as a permanent resident in September 18th 2015. My father adored the country greatly. With his time being here, he lived his life full of excitement. He was incredibly healthy for a man of his age but all of a sudden, he became very ill in October 5th 2016.
With what we witnessed, my father lived a great happy life and he was dear to every individual. Although he is not with us physically, he will always be spiritually with us in our hearts. I pray to god that his soul may have eternal peace.
