You were the mischievous and loving son
Nimal Aryaratne
To my beloved son, who left us three years ago

I recall the day you were born. It was such a joyous event. I remember when you, at age 7, walked about five miles from Royal Primary all the way home to Pagoda. I was amazed how you found your way! You were the mischievous kid in the family. You were a loving son, full of compassion. You were a great entertainer at family gatherings and today we miss you and your absence is greatly felt especially by your beloved wife, Valerie and your sons, Manjula and Sumedha and their families.

Your grandchildren, Nethme, Savidya and Sanchali would have had a wonderful grandfather.
All our memories lie within us as long as we live. It is a sad goodbye.

God bless you my darling putha and keep you in his arms till the great day of awakening dawns.
