Mrs. Vairakkannu Ponnuswamy, fondly called as “Vairam Mami” in our community reached the Lotus feet of God peacefully on August 27 , 2018 at her home in Ashok Nagar, Chennai and was laid to rest at her ancestral hometown Elaiyur, near Kumbakonam. She meant a world to her children, grand children and great grandchildren to whom she gave boundless, unconditional love and affection. Our family is very blessed to have her in our lives and will be dearly missed forever. She was a proud lady and had lived her entire life on certain unalterable core principles – faith in her God, generosity to all and strong belief in positive thinking. Mr. Appu Ponnuswamy, along with Vairam Mami have done a great service to Shiva Vishnu Temple and South Florida Tamil Sangam during their 10 years stay in Coral Springs before moving to Chennai. Vairam mami’s smile, kind words, love, the food and snacks she prepares (including Venezuelan Arepas) and shares with the friends who visits her will always be remembered by many members of the South Florida community.
