Reader tributes

I've known both Atul and Aseem since our days at Vista Elementary School. My heart goes out to you Aseem and to the rest of your family. Atul was a truly incredible kid. I remember him most as Aseems little brother, but also as memorable figure who was able to cross bridges between a multitude of groups. He talked to virtually everyone and was able to make everyone around him laugh. He also brought an unfathomable level of intelligence to every facet of life. I feel that both Atul and Aseem are aspirational figures for a great deal of us. I'm confident that what awaits Atul on the other side will be greater than anyone can imagine. It's awesome to see so much love for him here, keep the memories rolling.
