  7. For those of us who knew Binu and Aleysa, the world is most definitely a sadder place now that they are no longer with us. Each brought to the lives of those they knew special and amazing qualities.
    Binu had the most caring and charismatic personality that was instantaneously enthralling and captivating. He had the ability to befriend just about anyone and once you were his friend, you were part of his family. He was the kind of person that you wanted in your corner and who you knew would be there when and if you needed him. I’ll never forget the conversation I had with him just after he got engaged to Aleysa. I had been sagely married for 6 or 7 years and I asked him if he was scared to marry someone who he had only met a hand full of times. What he said shocked and humbled me. He replied, “Yeah, I think everyone is nervous before they get married, but the bottom line is that whether you have just met someone or have know them your whole life you have to work at your relationship if you want it to succeed and if you are committed to making it work then you do.”
    In a society that can make marriage feel more like “we’ll see” than “till death do us part” Binu’s response was both sincere and endearing.
    I am certain that he felt blessed and honored to be married to Aleysa, and she to him.
    Aleysa was a great complement to Binu. She was a great listener – he loved to talk; she was a bit more reserved while he was very outgoing. They worked well as a team and stuck by each other, even when times were hard and their strength, both personal and marital, were put to the test.
    For me, one of the saddest parts about Binu and Aleysa’s untimely departure is that they had so many dreams, so many plans and aspirations that are left unfinished. Some might say, “Well, at least they had as long as they did. They were able to accomplish a great deal of things, see many places and love many people.” And while all of that is true, I can’t help but feel robbed. Robbed of the idea of

  8. I write with a heavy heart….Binu was part of my life for a few short years, but leaves with me memories for a lifetime.

  9. I was fortunate to have known Binu and Aleysa because of their freindship with my brother Greg Smith. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  10. I had the great pleasure of working with Aleysa. She was an amazing person and such a bright light. Her smile was contagious and she was so much fun to be around. I will always cherish our late night talks in the lab. She will be greatly missed by so many. My thoughts and prayers go out to both families at this difficult time.

  11. Binu and Aleysa were good frieds to our son and daughter-in-law, Greg & Cindi Smith.

    This tragedy has touched lives all over the world! We feel honored to have known Binu and Aleysa and share your grief.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

  12. George was a great person whom we enjoyed working with. He was a fixture in our office in Walsenburg and always had a smile. Our condolences from Huerfano County Assessor’s Office…

  13. I first met Binu back in 1995 when I first started at CSU-P (USC back then). I pledged Kappa Sigma the following spring of 96 and got to know Binu real well as he seemed to be the nucleus of the Mu-Alpha chapter of Kappa Sigma. I remember going through campus events where Binu was the main coordinator that made it happen. That same semester, some of the guys got in trouble and Binu talked to the school leadership to save their hides. From that point on, it seemed apparent that he was the one that watched out for everyone and did whatever it took to help them out. Over the next three years, I got to know Binu very well through the fraternity and through classes because we were the only industrial engineering majors in the chapter at that time. He would help me on some of the math/engineering courses as he had already taken most of the same classes. We were involved in many events like wine & cheese, winter formal, and road trips to other chapters.

    The funniest memory I had with Binu was when we snuck into the Alpha Sigma Alpha office and attached a “device” to their desk with lag bolts. We snuck back out of the office and had to stop and catch our breath because we were laughing so hard!

    The last time I saw him was at Brandy & Jerry’s house where I met Aleysa for the first time. She was such a nice lady and I could tell that Binu & her were the real deal. They truly loved each other. I am so glad I got to see them.

  14. It was an honor to have studied along side Aleysa, and she will always be a part of our big pre-nursing family! God Bless her beautiful soul and my prayers go out to the family during this hard time.

  15. George and Aleysa are already sadly missed. They were good friends, especially to our children, Monica and Jim.
    George and Aleysa brought such joy to the lives of all who were lucky enough to have known them.
    Our deepest sympathy to the families.

  16. Binu and his wife will be sadly missed by all of us. Binu added joy and fun to our holidays especially Christmas and the singing of carols. He had a wonderful voice and sang with joy.
    Binu brought fun to our family gatherings and was a special friend to my brother, Greg. He will be sadly missed by my sons and their families, my brother, and my husband and I. May your memories console you during your time of grief.

  17. Binu and Aleysa, you did great things and touched many lives. You will be missed but we won’t forget. Thank you for the energy you brought to life while you were here.

    If anyone in Denver would like to go down on Wednesday, feel free to get in touch so we can coordinate rides. We have a few people who can drive already, so if you need a ride or could drive let me know.

    AEKDB,
