Remembering a Hero and an Angel:
Minal Panchal

by Kevin Caruso

Minal Hiralal Panchal, 26; graduate student in architecture; from Mumbai, India.

Minal wanted to be an architect like her father, who passed away a few years ago. And she was well on her way to realizing her dream.

“She was a brilliant student and very hardworking. She was focused on getting her degree and doing well,” said Chetna Parekh, a friend.

And Minal was a very kind person that everyone liked. “She was a very sweet girl,” said a friend.

Minal Panchal is one of the greatest angels in Heaven.

We miss him.

We honor him.

We love him.

We will never forget him.


Please visit and honor
the angels we lost:
