Apart from his students, his biggest support systems are his mother and sister. His mother cooks food for him, changes his clothes and most importantly, gives him the strength to carry on. His sister helps him manage the student reports, buys his medicines etc. Without them, he says he cannot survive a single day.

These lines from Mitch Albom’s book ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ can be related to him - “I give myself a good cry if I need it. But then I concentrate on the good things still in my life. I don't allow myself any more self-pity than that. A little each every morning, a few tears, and that's all.”
