Click here to read Preamble in Gujarati
After having gone through my previous Blog “As if Mr. Jeff is alive!” some of my Readers requested me to publish the Article written on Mr. Jeff by Janab Naseer Ismailee in “Gujarat Samaachar” under the title “Sanvedna-na-soor”. Accordingly, find the same scanned and attached with this preface.
I would like to quote Henry Ford in his words as “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress and working together is success.” The Article to be represented here will seem to be self-explanatory to my Readers how my friend Mr. Jeff became a successful man in his field. The author of the said Article has mentioned only one episode, but I am the witness of his such hundreds how he solved the personal problems of his customers just like a member of their families. He could do all this because his heart was filled with compassion for humanity and also he always put others before him.
Mr. Jeff always respected his customers. He behaved politely with some rude customers also and never hurt their feelings or insulted them. His ‘let go’ nature never allowed him to create any problem with the customers. His such attitude can be understood very well through one more quotation of Khalil Gibran as “If the other person injures you, you may forget the injury; but if you injure him, you will always remember.” Mr. Jeff was such a self made man through experiences and struggles of his life. He had a positive and faith-filled outlook on life and towards other people also.
Mr. Jeff’s body is now in the grave, his soul is in heaven; but his sweet memories will always remain alive in the minds and hearts of the people who came in contact with him in any kind of relations.
May his soul rest in peace in heaven.
With best regards,
– Valibhai Musa

Parents are the hands by which children could take hold of heaven. I honor and trust the unspoken possessions of my father———— the treasure of his example as a man, a father and a good human being. My father, MR.Jeff, had very positive attitude. Even in his last days he used to thank God for the long healthy life he had on this earth.I will always miss my father like I did when We were seprated at airport in Uganda .
