IN MEMORY

Honoring two past WBLD DJs who are no longer with us. May they rest in peace.


Neelam Mistry (1979-2000)

On December 28, 2000, the staff of WBLD was stunned and saddened by the sudden death of former staff member Neelam Mistry.  She was 21 years old and had been a DJ on WBLD from 1995 until June of 1997, when she graduated from West Bloomfield High School.

To say that Neelam will be missed is a gross understatement.  Neelam was so quick to smile, so cheerful, so incredibly bright and vibrant, that it is difficult to believe that she is no longer with us.  Those what were touched by her tragically brief life will never forget what a warm, kind, wonderful human being she was, and Neelam will always be remembered by those who loved her and were fortunate enough to have known her.

Ramsin Silawa (1984-2001)

On November 26,2001, the staff of WBLD was once again stunned by the sudden death of another former staff member, Ramsin Silawa.  Ramsin was just 17 years old and had been a DJ the previous year on WBLD.  He was killed in a car accident while visiting relatives in Texas for the Thanksgiving, 2001 holiday.

Though quiet and sometimes reserved, Ramsin was popular among the staff members of WBLD and among the gamers who often hung out at the radio station.  Those who knew him will always remember what a friendly, intelligent and genuinely nice person he was.  And Ramsin will be missed.


Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there -- I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am a diamond glint on snow.

When you wake in the morning, hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

of quiet birds in the circling flight.

I am the soft starlight of night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there.

I do not sleep.
