    We periodically chatted, but mostly laughed heartily. Our last conversation was on April 14 – right on his very birthday. He was so surprised that I remembered his birthday. I told him that let us thank Facebook for it that has freed us from remembering many mundane things. At the time of this call he was in the LA area with his daughter and excitedly told me of his becoming great grandfather! We joked around. As a matter of fact he had a kind of declared of having a gala party on turning 90 next year. Hira was a party person and genuinely loved having a good time with friends and relatives. Above all, he lived to the true meaning of his given/first name, Hira for diamond in English. Now the challenge for me is fulfill your wish posthumously by throwing a party when I turn 90 in 2029. Beauty of life, like that of a diamond, shines from different angles. I would have said a few words on your funeral on Tuesday, but this time I am in California!! I am sure that would be a somber, yet a lively event. I need not say ‘Rest in Peace, as you were a peaceful person. Thanks for the memories!
