We were shocked to hear about the passing of Sriman Ramakeli Prabhu ,My encounter with him was in 1982 in Nairobi Kenya.I remember well getting off the plane and seeing this tall devotee with a bright smile and who looked intimidating to me .He reminded me almost of my Principle.Oh no, I said to myself will I be able to communicate or deal with this person ?His American english his authoritarian personna .I felt discouraged at first but as days and weeks went by I came t o appreciate his attitute his willingness to take me under his wings and teach me of how to be a good sankirtan devotee .He made sure that I had breakfast prasadam before going out on Sankirtan and after .When I was feeling homesick as I was only a mere teenager who was always under the protection and shelter of my parents he would preach and comfort me as a father .Seeing his bright smile when I tell him the score of my sankirtan collection for the day would make me feel so inspired to go out day after day and preach and be the best Sankirtan devotee there can be .We will surely miss him.I am certain he is off to serve Srila Prabhupada and Lord chaitanya Mahaprabhu where ever he may be .
