I can’t imagine the Hope community, Panditiya neighborhood, or South Cal without Geeta. She was ever-present, she knew everyone from the young crèche children to the life skills trainees, to the young women and men in the Hope residences to us expats/friends of Hope by face and name. I cannot recall her not smiling. She was compassionate, dedicated and tireless. I extend my sincere condolences to her husband, son, extended family and the hundreds if not thousands of lives she touched and improved. She left this world much too soon.
