Anjana, our sweet little girl was cremated at Pushpatinath on Sunday July 3, 2016 at 4 PM attended by all of the older children of Ama Ghar , staff and friends of Ama Ghar. In the Nepali tradition, each person gives her a Tika and places marigolds and then completely walks around her adding flowers, I think of it as encasing her in love.
I was given the honor of placing the first Tika and was overwhelmed when Bhesh handed me the most beautiful garland of flowers that was made by the children. They used our lovely blooming, soft blue purple hydrangeas with soft pink roses. I was stunned by how this garland was so soft and lovely like our Anjana.
I want to thank our worldwide family for their prayers and concern for the Ama Ghar family. We are heartbroken but strong in our togetherness.
Now we turn our attention to those that are healing in the hospital and the others that were in the classroom when this terrifying wall of rock and mud struck.
Once again, I am so proud of the Ama Ghar children as they are all taking turns to stay in the hospital and help wherever they can. — Bonnie Ellison, July 4, 2016
