I shared a longer note with my family members
and thanks to Tanveer, he has updated with exact timings.
Also posted on facebook and am overwhelmed with the responses:
Mike Ghouse :: NINE YEARS AGO THIS DAY, I was admiring her beautiful angelic face, she had tied all the loose ends of life before departing on her eternal journey, she was free and had peace written all over her face. Thank you Mom, I will do my best to tie the loose ends of my life and be free. I love you.

Mike, it was wonderful being with you tonight. I didn’t know the importance of this evening (or morning) for you until I checked facebook just now. Having lost my Dad in January 7yrs ago, I understand what you are feeling. May your mother’s spirit continue to guide your heart and her wisdom speak directly to your soul. When we listen to those now … See Morepassed, we welcome them into a new kind of intimacy wherein their strength fuels our own, allowing us to “see” what we might not otherwise receive as our own conception…but in a dance of awareness, we can still learn, widening the illumination they gave to us. Your mother and your father would both be proud that they planted seeds inside you that have grown into a man capable of standing for his own beliefs, devoted more to integrity than his own ego, and whose altruisim ignites in others the realization of a shared humanity. I know I for one, am proud to know you, Mike.

– Mary Ann, thanks for the dinner, it was good being with you and the group laughing our hearts out. I am tempted to believe that you and I were related in a previous birth, either your were my daughter or a older sister or perhaps a mother, that is the halo of you that touches me…. See More
– I am blessed and greatful for every one. I closed my evening last night with a universal prayer and gratitude to my mother. Thank you.

Mike – you are living my favorite quote.
“Rather than grieve the absence of flame, let us celebrate how brightly it burned.”
Peace to you my friend.

I was admiring my mothers beautiful angelic face, sitting right next to her bodyat our home in Yelahanka.I was blessed to say thank you to her 12 hours before she passed away.
She had tied all the loose ends of life before departing on her eternal journey, she was free and had peace written all over her face. That is the one of the biggest lessons of my life; to tie the loose ends. I have always felt good about that, thanks to her for calling on Saturday morning around 9:00 AM, Jeff, Mina and Najma were right next to me and I was crying like a baby and I am glad I did.
I was home in less than 24 hours, Farooq did not come to Bangalore Airportto pick me up, no one was answering the phones, it wasmidnight, I knew it and reached home around 5:00 AM.
Well, I will say my prayers and go to sleep now.
Thank you Ammi.

Assalaam-o-Alaikum Chan Mamu,

Exact details are not important but the remembrance is crucial.

Saturday 17th Feb 2001 08:00PM IST was the Final Call Time you talked with Ji-Ammi. You were asking her to wait until you are in india and she was responding it will be difficult for her to wait. And she was happy to talk to you.

She knew her time had come. She was telling Chote Mamu (Farooq) to get her out of the hospital and take her home. Mom and Pyare Mamu (Shan) were there with her until 05:30AM IST 18th Feb 2001, just little after the Call(Azaan) for the Fajr Prayer when she was given some milk to drink.

That was when she breathed her last.

You reached Bangalore around 03:00AM IST 19th Feb 2001 and reached home at 05:00AM IST 19th Feb 2001.

She was buried at 02:30 PM IST 19th feb 2001.

Khuda Hafiz,
