Condolence From: Suzanne Shaw
Condolence: My condolences to Padma's family and close friends. I met Padma at Unicorn books when I first moved to Winchester from New Jersey in the fall of 1993. I started going for Reiki with her when she first began her practice shortly thereafter and was a client for 15 years, almost weekly on a pretty regular basis. My daughter went once and an older friend with Parkinson's went once but I was a regular since Padma's Reiki energy was so deeply healing and rejuvenating for me. I trained with Padma and was certified by her in Reiki 1 on April 15, 2007 and then I moved to California in September of 2010. I saw Padma the last time I was in Boston in the fall of 2011 and last spoke with her in the summer of 2016. I did not know Padma passed a way and left a voice mail message for her earlier this year and just yesterday to let her know I would be back in Boston early in the New Year and hoped to see her. I had not heard back so googled her when I came home tonight and found her obituary. My thoughts of her warm voice and presence washed over me after reading it along with memories of my wonderful sessions with her. Padma was truly a gifted healer and I will always hold her memory in my heart. Many blessings to you Padma, wherever your spirit may be in the universe. May your soul soar with wings of light forever.

Condolence: I met Padma back in the 1980's when she was Evie. I saw her devotion to her own mother. I witnessed her light becoming brighter as she became Padma and the Reiki healer. I was the beneficiary of her Reiki healing energy both when she treated me after a significant accident and brain injury and when I trained with her. She was a great supporter for me to use my Reiki. A beautiful, beautiful person who I feel very blessed to have called friend. Gone too soon from this life but she'll be there for all of us and her son in the divinity. I'll miss you Evie Padma.

Condolence: I'm so sorry for your family's loss. She was truly a pure soul.

I only found out last week of her passing, and I regret not reaching out to her sooner. I last saw her for reiki in early June and was aware she was not well, but her unfailing optimism gave me no reason to believe that she would leave us so quickly.

While doing some cleaning, I came across a postcard from her reiki practice today which says "I hope you are well and that your reiki journey continues. Sending you reiki blessings and loving thoughts." I can't help but feel like I was meant to find that now and that was her way of sending me a postcard so to speak.

Condolence: I was very sad to learn today of Padma's passing. She has been such an important part of my life for the last 18 years. Padma taught me reiki and then provided distance reiki for me and my pets over the years. She was kind and caring - the eternal optimist. I know Padma must be the purest of lights on the other side and I am sure she was embraced by many as she crossed. I will miss her and our conversations very deeply.

Condolence: I met Padma 16 years ago when I first sought out reiki for panic attacks.Padma not only cured my panic attacks,but attuned me to reiki and became one of my dearest friends. Padma was a light for my whole family in our darkest times. Padma just radiated goodness and compassion.My husband said this morning “Padma was not only good for us,she was good for the whole world.”I know her light still shines.

Condolence From: Ann PELLAGRINI
Condolence: Dear Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I am in shock at the swiftness of her passing but also grateful that she didn't suffer for long. For the family, I hope that you find peace and comfort in knowing how much she loved you. Padma was a lovely woman, kind, encouraging, supportive and healing. I met her at Unicorn bookstore and studied with her but was called to Peace Corps and lost touch. A few years after I returned, I saw her name on a bldg. directory, called to inquire and reconnected with her. As I try to wrap my head around her passing, I can only remember her warm welcomes, her smile and her generosity of her healing energy. Whenever I use my Nepalese bag, I will think of Padma because she had a top made of the exact same material and we laughed at loving the same things. Come to think of it. she also had the same silver pin that I had bought at a vintage store. I will miss Padma and I will hold dear the lovely memories I have of her life. With deepest sympathy, AnnP

Condolence: Padma helped me in so many ways, I will truly miss her presence. She was always kind, non-judgemental and encouraging. Through her understanding of Reiki as my teatcher, she taught me to appreciate the healing power of energy. Memories of her Reiki hugs will always remain.

Condolence From: Kristian and Konnor Crewe
Condolence: Padma changed for the better those whose lives that she touched. Kristian and I will miss her tremendously. She shared my mom’s birthday, and even though she was in my life a short time, I feel like I knew her for much longer. She was such a good soul. I think she knew but we would like to thank her for her gift of reiki and friendship.
