A valued member--and very dear friend--within our community, Arun Rajagopal lost his mum this week, and our hearts and prayers go out to him and his family.
While Arun is geographically located in the Sultanate of Oman and that feels mighty far away to many of us, Arun has brought the marketing community and the world closer through his tireless work to make the Age of Conversation book, and all of its authors, known to The Middle East--along with spending so much time in providing profiles for us to get to know one another better.
He has been proud to do the work of not ten men, but ten thousand.
It is with a heavy heart and much love that we send Arun and his family our prayers--as that is all he has asked of us. Please take some time to leave some kind thoughts, a poem, a prayer or just some supportive words in the comments below. If you can donate through PayPal, we will also get that to Arun to help with the tremendous expenses associated with laying a loved one to rest.
And please let others know to leave Arun some kind words here. It's amazing what words from friends can do in trying times. Arun, you are loved, you are high in our thoughts and in all of our prayers.
