Default Perspective

This thread just puts things in perspective. Getting a GC and beyond is a good thing, but in the larger scheme of things, enjoying the present moment and enjoying what you got is far more important. You never know when it can end !

Default What we can do to help his family

We the employment based immigrant community to do some thing to help his family. May be by contributions, and help his family to get his benefits from the company he worked, any insurance, IRA, 401K etc.....
Hiis spouse may not have the ability do these things from a foreign country. Some body from IV must contact his family now based in Sweden. This is my suggestion.

The news is terrible...

But I admire the courage he showed during his difficult times.

I agree with you dealsnet. We, the members of IV, should take up this issue and try to help his family.

ArkBird, any ideas how we can help?

Default Read his 3 post

I am pasting his 3 remarkable postings. We can see his courage to face the destiny. He thinks about his family, and see them settle in a stable country before his end. He is saying good bye to IV readers on his last post.

Gurus,

I have a unique position. couple of weeks back I was told that have fatal cancer and won't live pass 4-6 months. After recovering from initial shock I am wondering if my wife will be able to continue her american dream or she will have to head home after me.

I have filed 485 with approved 140 back in june, 2007 with PD of March, 2003

Please help.

Mehul

Let me answer that. I am from Fiji but I was born in India so I am stuck with rest of you and for my family going back is not an option. Fiji is very hostile to indians living there so for us it's here or nowhere. May be india is an option but we have very few distant relatives in India as both of our parents has passed away.

Though it is a big shock for me and my family, I have to get over it and think about their survival after me.

My apologies if I have given the impression as GC greedy but I can understand how difficult it is for someone to understand how is life without something you can call a "Home"


Thank you all for your help and support but I have made peace with my fate. I have pancreas cancer with VERY poor pragnosis and trust me I took 5 different opinions with the some of the best hospitals in US and Europe.

Regarding my family, something is working out in Sweden and probably all of us will move there permanently in 1-2 months. We have some relatives living there.

Thanks again for all you help. You guys really made us feel we are not alone.

Good luck and Good Bye.

Mehul

Default Our Prayers for you

Dear Friend:

Do not give up hope.

Take a second opinion.

Go to India and spend time with your loved ones. Many times that heals things in a magic way !

On your GC situation do these :

1)Send an appeal to your local senator under CC to the Secretary of State, Homeland Security and the President to intervene and do some thing
2)Send an appeal to the Director of USCIS in charge of AOS explaining the situation
3)Consult a good attorney to know the options in the exiting scenario

My entire family will say a prayer for you today at 8 PM. I request all IV members to join the prayers if possible.

God Bless You

Balaji

Default close this please

I think the admin should respect the wishes of his friends and close this thread, it is causing pain for them.
If all of us agree that we need to help his family then lets open a new thread and make it about helping them, so his friends do not need to come back here and read his last words over and over again.

I am just trying to be sensitive to those that knew him.
