The mother is everything in life.
She is the consolation in our sadness, the hope in our
distress, the strength in our weakness.
She is the source of compassion, she is love and grace.
He who loses his mother loses a breast on which to lay
his head, a hand that blesses him, a gaze that protects him.
Tribute to Durvasula Bala Tripura Sundari
November 15, 1936 ~ January 10, 2016
Durvasula Bala Tripura Sundari, 79, passed away peacefully at 2:25 am January 10, 2016 in Chandler, AZ, USA. Sundari “Sue”, although fighting a long battle with her illness, never once gave up her spirit & love of life. Through trials and tribulations of life, our mother continued to be a pillar of strength for the family.
Born in Rajahmundry, India she migrated to the USA with her late husband and 3 children in 1967. Although settling her life in the USA, she never gave up her traditions and culture . . . her roots.
She was a loving wife and a mother to her 3 children Somayajulu (Sam), Lakshmi and Radhika, who will continue her legacy and traditions. She is also survived by her son-in-law, Nagendra Prasad Palakodaty; daughter-in-law, Indu Durvasula; and grandchildren: Sri Rama Durvasula, Janardan Durvasula, Shivani Palakodaty and Srikari Palakodaty.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to everyone touching our mother’s life. We thank God for the gift of her life and the blessing of time spent with our mother.

In the depth of your hopes and desires,
Lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow,
Your heart dreams of spring
