“Most importantly,” Nevis added in a public letter to his friend, “you loved your friends and family.”

Prakhar listed the following family members on his Facebook page: His father, Uma Shankar Pandey, and mother, Rashmi Pandey, who live in Belle Mead, and a sister, Khushi Pandey, Montgomery High School Class of 2021.
