Even after death, you can continue to live in the hearts of people with your good deeds. Something similar happened recently when a Cambridge-based charity for the homeless revealed Stephen Hawking's final act of kindness. The legendary scientist, who passed away on March 14, and his family had paid for an Easter lunch for the homeless in Cambridge, the university city in eastern England, where he dedicated his life in unravelling the mysteries of the universe.

His parting gift was given out at Wesley Methodist Church, where mourners gathered on Saturday to celebrate the life of their favourite professor.

Along with the lunch, a touching note, signed by the "Hawking family", was left on the tables and the 50 guests were told that the lunch was a "gift from Stephen".

The organisers, FoodCycle, said the late professor was given a "little cheer" by diners before they started their meals. Some of them were also in tears when they learnt about the extra-special lunch. They posted few snaps of the elaborate dishes.



Easter also marked the funeral of the man behind the God particle, where hundreds of well-wishers filled the streets of Cambridge to bid Talkin' Hawkin' a last goodbye.
