My Dear Sam ,
It is with great pleasure that I am wrting this Happy Birthday Greeting to
you – 22nd July .
I wish you ALL the Very Best of The Best of Birthdays this year and many
more to enjoy, in the years ahead .
May you enjoy this day, with Kathy , children grand children , and the
many friends you have over where ever you are today, and have GREAT day .
Many Blessings and many thoughts of Gratitude to you for all that you are
to the Class of 64.
I really have no words to describe ALL of your talents – so here are a few
pics that speaks volumes about Who and What YOU are !
1. Sam- The Spider Man .
You actually signed off one your e-mails to me with this caption- and I said
to my self ” here is a good one ‘ !
I took this photo one morning, as I was having my morning coffee on the
deck- and there were all these mosquitoes trapped in the spider web- like
the way you virtually hold us as a captive audience in your wonderfully
created Web .
By afternoon- the web was all broken up by the wind .
But I can assure you, that The Spider Man’s Web with all of its captive
audience, from sea to sea, across the globe, will be there for ever, with
no winds from near of far, to break it up !!
2 Sam- The Dream Catcher .
You are what we have been dreaming of, all these years- someone one to
‘Hold Together, The Class of 64 ”
Your web seems to capture the beauty of the Class of 64- each one of us
like a dew drop, a precious gem, glittering in the morning sun, hanging
on the spider web — as it is in this photo I took in my garden, some years
Believe me Sam, we will be hanging on to this Dream Catcher for many years
to come …..
It holds Our Dreams, Our Thoughts, Our Joys, Our Sorrows ,
Our Wisdom of The Ages, Our Memories of Fun and Laughter of Med School
3. Sam -The Anesthetist .
I love this photo !!!!- shows you ever sooo serious on the job of being the
This is what I mean by saying you hold in your web all ” The fun and
laughter of the Class of 64 ” !!
If it were not for The Spider Man, how could we ever share these fun times
and jokes ! ??
4. Sam – The Photocatcher — always there , ever ready to capture that
moment in time, without missing a beat , and ‘doctor’ them up to suit the
The lovely serenity of the photo you put out for the Sinhala- Tamil New
Year Greeting was one of them- , which I have on my ‘desk top ‘.
Then, the lovely village scene of the ‘photo appreciation ‘ post, and
the Sandhill Crane family photo post , to mention a few , that touched a
chord in my soul, ….
These are a few of your wonderful photo creative talents, that you sooo
wiillingly share with the Class of 64 .
5. Sam – The Fun Guy !!
THIS is a real prize shot- I don’t know who took it ( perhaps Mahesan ) at
the RU ’89 in UK .
I have to thank Selvarani for the Photo Slide Show she had running at
Beruwala, in the foyer, just outside the dining room, on the day of the
Saturday Night Dinner Dance .
She was kind enough to send me a CD of this Slide Show , of previous RU’s
and some other photos .
Well my dear Sam, I think I have said ALL I want to say, and again, let me
Wish You a Very Happy Birthday today !
Deepthie- one of the S group mates- who is still in The Dream Catcher
Land of Class of 64 !
