20th April, 2020 - the date that we were all looking forward to had finally arrived. Even in the midst of a global pandemic (silly coronavirus), you managed to throw yourself the best online 8th birthday party! You sat with me for days on end planning it– a...
Today, as I’m writing this letter to you, we have entered Year No. 5 of life without mommy. We’re still struggling to come to terms with how the years have gone by (as I’m sure we will be all through our lives but that’s OK), what with her just so sudden...
At the time of writing this letter to you, I had recently returned from the best 2 weeks holiday I had while visiting you in Cleveland. The plan was actually to surprise you for Christmas but instead, it felt like I just gave myself the best Christmas pr...
Today as I write this post, I am only a couple days away from being, for the first time in my life, the same age as my older sister – a fact as bizarre as it is tragic. All through my life, I looked up to your mom as someone who just understood the wor...
I’d like to begin this letter by saying how incredibly proud we are of you. For someone your size, I must say you’ve taught us way too much! Looking at you, I just wonder how amazing it is that the littlest of people can give you such huge lessons on how to...
Your mother was one of the most headstrong women I knew, but that is something you've probably already figured out by now. Whether it was waking up for school after me so she could get the extra 10 minutes of sleep, or spending all of her time waiting for...
At the time of writing this letter to you, we had just returned from our 15 day long vacation to celebrate your 5th birthday together. Nani, nana and I had met you and daddy after 1 whole year, and what a fun time we all had! From your endless chatte...
My Granddad was a stubborn man. He lived all his life on his terms. He was not the type of man who would take things lying down. He was always ready for a fight when he knew he was right. He had lived a full life, surrounded...
My name is Sakina Changi and I have had the privilege of being Sameera Changi’s mother. Last September, I experienced firsthand what we call “the circle of life”. Just as I spent 9 months nursing my child inside of me in 1986, in 2015 I spent 9 months trying to nurse...
Words alone can't describe the vacuum nor the feeling one experiences losing a friend like you. God works in mysterious ways and this one has stunned us. From random party scenes, fun times at office and our trip to Goa, you will always bring forth cherished memories. Death ends a life, not a relationship. You will continue to live in our hearts forever. We will now see you through Armeen. You will always be missed. Wish you peace wherever you are. Love u Sam !!
Wish I could have met you once. Wish I could have spoken to you once my dear
friend. You...our little Ms. Sunshine....you have left a void in all our lives. Never thought I'd
have to write this message for you Sammy. God gave me a wonderful friend in you. You will
stay forever in my memory and prayers. You will be terribly missed by all of us. May your soul
rest in peace dear...
As you continue your journey towards the gates of heaven I ask the almighty to forgive all your sins and be a guiding light to Armeen and your family and always look after them from above .. Thanks for being a good friend u will be missed by all .. RIP muaah ! God Bless
I only have such fond memories of us together Sameera - I remember your laugh, days & nights in college together, our fun trips to Pune/Goa, hysterical giggles, night outs, boys, kit kat chunky, biriyani at your place, you as a beautiful bride. You will always have a special place in my heart & I'll miss you forever. <3
You will stay in our hearts forever as a warrior who took all the battles and challenges head
on...... Sameera Changi you are now the angel for Armeen and her everlasting guiding force.
One of the most beautifully resilient girls I have ever known! You were always a star Sameera, time for you to truly come into your own :) Having said that, you will be profoundly missed by us lesser mortals! love and light, always.
Before there was Viman Nagar or Lavale, before there was anyone from batch of 2009, before even SIMC happened, there was Sandeep and you, Sameera. And you shall for ever stay that special grumpy who cheered the world!
...our stunning brave Sam is exemplary of her fighting spirit....she never gave up till Allaha wanted her with HIM. Let's remember her with a smile....because our tears will make her sad.....and we want her to be at peace in jannatul firdous.....rest in peace beti Sam....missing you is now a part of our life.
Its too late but I wish my words reach you and if there is life beyond, maybe they will. I regret
not staying in touch with you over the years. I regret not having such a wonderful friend that I
could have. I always thought there was enough time in the future to make amends (don't we
all!). I regret on being so wrong. I realize how short life can be and wish I could go back. God
bless your soul Sameera and give everyone the courage to fill the void you have left behind,
especially your daughter. Will always treasure our memories.
...could not meet her much on account of boundary constraints ... But have always felt her love as she gave me a new name of "Chachu"... She would always keep in touch on FB and I could see that her life revolved exclusively around her husband and daughter ..Her smile was the most awesome smile that I've seen and it's so strange that I've been thinking about her only after she has left us .. I wish I had the good fortune of spending more time with her

What a beautiful soul she was.. someone with one of the prettiest smiles I've ever seen.. we had lost touch after sophia but thanks to facebook, I got to see another side of Sameera. Sameera, the mum, who was crazy, madly and deeply in love with this little person who had filled her life.. :) your mum was a rockstar Armeen.. your guardian angel for life... you've given her the most cherished times and I pray that someday this little reflection of Sameera grows up to be just like her. God bless!
