But today, after 25 years, the Lord has blessed her with everything in abundance…she said “it is only because of the services I rendered to the Residents and to the Home, I received torrents of graces and blessing. " Everyone in the Hall shed tears of sorrow and joy with her. Though Mr. Puttaiah did not share his story in public, his life experiences resembled that of Mrs. Jaya Mary.

God bless both of them for their dedicated service to the elderly poor during the last 25 years which they still desire to continue.
