I will miss you so so much this summer at camp. You were the happiest little boy I’ve ever met. I will NEVER forget you because you will always be in my heart. You’re in a better place now. Just remember how much we all love you<3

My daughter Gretchen was one of Arun’s Camp Arrowhead counselors last summer. She shared some stories of Arun’s unique and heartwarming personality. He touched everyone who met him and he will be missed. Please accept our family’s sincere condolences on this sad loss of such a special child.

Dear Chatterjee Family,
I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I am as well as all of the staff at the Lakota YMCA are with the passing of Arun. The YMCA especially Camp Arrowhead will not be the same without Arun and his smile. We will miss him terribly and he will always be remembered. He touched all of our lives in a very special way. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. If there is anything we can do for you please don’t hesitate to let us know.
We love you Arun!

Our very deepest sympathy in the loss of your son, Arun. In the words of John Lennon, he was a Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy).
