My Deepest Sympathies to Shylaja and family, on the loss of your beloved
Husband, father and grandfather .
The passing of Yoganathan comes as a real shock to us, right on the heels
of Kumi’s passing .
The sudden news of this- coming so soon after we all met at RU 64- 2014-
Beruwala, makes it even harder …
This goes to show how short life is , and the need to ‘stay together ‘ ,as
these pictures speak more than words ..
