Anton A. Puvimanasinghe
On this special day – your Birthday,
We thank God for every remembrance of you.
All that made you the man you were –
Your virtues, your gifts, your beautiful character.
Everything you said, your words of hope and comfort,
Everything you did, your commitment to all that mattered,
Your honesty and integrity beyond compare,
Also your loyalty, devotion and tender care.
We fondly recall the happy days now long gone
When you were by our side, helping and leading us on.
With your gentle spirit, tender devotion and love
You were indeed a gift to us from above.
We are grateful for the years spent with you
For the joy and happiness bestowed on us by you.
We are blessed for having closely known you;
We thank our God for the precious gift of you.
All the words in the world cannot express
The love that fills our hearts for you.
We can never repay but earnestly pray
That God may abundantly reward you.
Vaya con Dios, till we meet on that Beautiful Shore.
