Dear Sam, I wonder if you could please post this on our Blog.
I have been in regular touch with James’ wife Christina since our RU64.His death anniversary falls on March 23rd. I just received a message from Christina stating that she would be very grateful for any tributes from his friends and colleagues that could be mentioned on the occasion and for his children to know more about their dad directly from friends. Anyone who is happy to contribute can either post it on the Blog or better, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward them to Christina.
I am sad to inform you that our dear batch mate and Bloemite Kulothungam Ilango, departed this world a few days ago.
He trained as an oncologist, worked for some insurance company and then as a GP. I am told he had a stroke.

It is with great sadness that I write this to inform the passing away of our dear friend Geetha’s husband. Unfortunately, this only transpired during a random conversation of Wimal with her. He had passed away in February but we did not know about it till yesterday.
Ranjit and I offer our sincere condolences to you on this sad occasion. At least his sufferings are over and he is in a better place.
Praxy and Ranjit
