Dr. Roma Taylor

Dr. Roma Taylor is a good friend of HH Priya Nathji from America. She had painstakingly sent HH Priya Nathji medical literature during the days of Shri Nathji's hospitalization and given frequent medical advice through letters, expressing deep concern for Shri Nathji. Shri Nathji was ever conscious of his duty to Priya Nath's friends. Shri Nathji suggested sending her a birthday present on her birthday on the 13th of September 1983. A saree was purchased for her. Shri Nathji examined the saree carefully and liked it. Permission was required from a bank in order to send the saree to America. And so Shri Nathji, HH Priya Nath and Urhekar went to the Grindlays Bank at Connaught Place to fill the required forms of valuation. 
Dr, Roma continued her long relationship with HH Priya Nathji and even visit him recently in November 2012 and stayed at his residence, Savitri Nivas in Mussoorie. When she came to meet Priya Nath in November 2012 at Mussoorie she told him that she had retained that saree which was sent to her as a present by HH Shri Nathji. That it was her desire that when she left the world she would do so wearing that saree. Her faith in HH Shri Nathji soared after her visit to Mussoorie and she knelt and prayed before his Holy Ashes at Mussoorie, and felt the vibrations of his Love. She was convinced it was Shri Nathji who had brought her all the way to India to meet Priya Nath. Thereafter she began calling Priya Nath - who she had called "Priya" earlier, -- as 'Priya Nathji" with reverence.
Here is a photograph of Dr. Roma Tailor with HH Priya Nathji in Mussorie (Also in the photo is Mrs. Patricia Keelan, HH Priya Nathji’s  former teacher at Vincent Hill School, Mussoorie.) In the other photo Dr. Roma can be seen at her daughter’s wedding in 2011.
