Best Wishes to Damayanthi Gunaratne (Wijedoru)







Happy Birthday To You Damayanthie !
I wish you all that is Best in Health and Happines on this Special Day –
your Birthday Day !
The photos I have posted- says it all — you never missed a singe RU – ’89
in UK, ’94 in Bentota , and 2014 in Beruwala.
We – the Class of 64- are fortunate to have you among us – your generous
heart, charming personality and your ever sweet smile .

I will never forget the day you rang the door bell at my home in
Mississauga , I open the door and there you were !!!! one Sunday morning ,
some 25 or more yrs ago , when you and your late husband was doing a trip in
Both of you spent the night at Niagara Falls, and then got a map, found my
place and just drove right on to the driveway !!
Back then, we had no GPS, no Cell phones etc just a road map and lots of
luck and guts !

I am just waiting for the day, when you will do the same thing again sooner
rather than later .
But, now we have GPS and Cell phones and Internet !!!

I remember the good times we had together at Med school, while in S L as
young interns, and for the short time we were in SL after that , and even
after we had left SL and went our separate ways , living half a world away
from each other , you still remembered me and wrote to me, from where ever
you were living and we would exchange photos of our kids etc !
Those were great days Damyanathie … and I will never forget them …

I know you are not much of an internet person- but try to keep in touch,
even occasionally, via the Web that Sam has started for us to stay together

Anyway- let me wish you ALL Good wishes for this Birthday and those to
come in the years ahead .
Your good friend for all time !!

– Deepthie

Damayanthi your birthday is here
It is a pleasure to wish you happy birthday dear..
May you be blessed with health wealth and prosperity,
With many more years and longevity.
Praxy and Ranjit

  8. Damayanthie, Dear.

    Wish you a very happy birthday & many more great ones to follow, over years. Remembering the great Med School days, where we had good times, crazy activities, violent studies & painful lectures ; together, Cos G & F , were not that apart. One secret I want from you; How do you keep yourself looking SO SO YOUNG!!. You do not look too different from days of 1964- 1969 !!.

    Have a great life. WIMAL FERNANDO. [ L.W.S.]
