Charity Fund in memory of Dennis John Malloosseril
- Dear Moderators,
Dennis John who was killed in the New Jersey church shootout is my first
cousin. He was the youngest of us cousins. The following is a message
regarding a Charity Fund that Dennis's family is planing to start. If
you feel it apt to post this in your forum, please do so.
Dennis was a great human being with a huge heart. He was always there
for people who needed any kind of help. His devotion to the church was
at such a high level, starting with being a Alter boy at the age of 9 to
becomming the committee member of his church and also an Association
member of the North American Knanaya Association at this young age.
Aptly for a person like him, for what he was in his life, his organs
were donated to needy patients. All of us family pray for the recipients
of the organs, that they live long. His Wake and Funeral details are
also given in the below message if it would be useful for our members in
