Manish Bhardwaj (1974-2008)

It is with deep regret we inform that Manish Bhardwaj lost his battle with cancer and passed away on Thursday, November 6th 2008 at 9:45 AM in Houston. Manish is survived by his wife Renuka, 5 year old daughter Ankita and 1 year old son Arjun. He started his journey to almighty and all are praying for him to rest in peace.

Manish's passing away was untimely but he indeed lived his life wonderfully. Manish did a lot on earth. I'm sure he will do much more in heaven. All the memories we have shared with him will forever be cherished and remembered. Manish will forever live in our hearts.

Manish adored his family. His wife, Renuka, daughter, Ankita and son Arjun were the center of his universe. His daughter Ankita had a special place in his heart. He could not take enough pictures of her.

The vast outpouring of love and support shown during his illness by all the people he has touched provides a solid stepping stone for all of us as we try to deal with this loss and move forward. At this difficult time, please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you all for the good wishes, prayer and support you all have provided in various bone marrow drives. Infact two perfect marrow matches were identified.

This is not the time for us to grieve his passing away but it's our time to celebrate his life. He wanted to make everyone happy. Think back and remember how Manish touched our lives. We should all be thankful that we were given the chance to have known him. Manish, a good friend, great husband, son and father will forever be missed.
