Dear all
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.
Dear Geetha
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.

Passing of a dear friend

Dhamsawatie Madapatha- A Celebration of Life .
It is much sadness that I write this for Dhamsa,  my dear friend, and a
friend for all of Class of 64 .

 

 

 

My deepest Sympathies to Wilmot . her very loving husband  and their sons ,
who cared for her ever so lovingly during her illness with Parkinsons .

She was my good friend, my neighbor on the 3rd floor of the ‘ Hopper House
‘– I was in room 4, and she was in # 5, that she shared with Stella .

Her gentle quiet presence , her eternal sweet smiling face, was a soothing
balm to my restless soul… needless to say to any of you who know me !
Trust her to give me the right advice at the right time ,  and ‘ say it as
is ‘ , when ever I was in ‘tight spot ‘ so to speak .
Common Sense – was her Middle Name .

Even though we were training in ‘ western medicine, ‘  I still relied on
her famous father- Madapath Veda Mahattaya’s guli and thaila, for various
ailments that we young women had at that time .  I still recall, how some of
those little guli’s fixed my ” upset stomach, ”  after I indulged in some
food- sheer glut that was back then !
And Oh– the  most delicious home cooked Gampaha food she would bring back,
on Sunday evening, when  ever she went home for the weekend which   was just
plain Food of The Gods for us, in the Hopper House!

I do recall how I visited her at the Jayawardenepura Hospital , a few
times, back in the 80’s when she was working in the ER, and Narme for the
Med Director of the hospital
I never missed a chance to visit her there .  Later on, we all met at a
reception back in the early 2000’s at a golf club in Colombo , and it was
such a treat to see her there . Sadly, no photos of that beautiful event
survived the water damage to my Class of 64 photo album, of 50 yrs of photos
..
These two photos came from Selvarani- who had it on a CD- that she
generously shared with me .

My only regret is that I did not find the time to visit her during the
2014, Class of 64 RU .
I was planning to visit her this time- -and now, it is not meant to be ….

Nothing in Life Lasts for Ever ..–Lives Lived, Lessons Learned ..
May you Attain Nibbana my dear Dhamsa .

Your  Class of 64 Mate – Deepthie .

 

 

I too just heard from Damayanthi Wijedoru who had spoken to her husband Wilmot. Funeral to be notified later.

She worked with me at Sri Jayewardenapura General Hospital. She was a quietly efficient and conscientious and unassuming soul. My son still remembers her as a kind doctor who nebulized him during an asthma attack. May she atain Nibbana and her journey through Samsara be short.
My deepest sympatties to Wilmot and children
Narme

Deepest sympathies to Wilmot.

Ranjit and I-are very sad to hear the”passing away “ of our dear friend Dhamsa.Time before last when we were in SL I spoke to her on the phone and she struggled to speak saying that she cannot swallow and depends on “tube feeding” . She passed the phone to her husband who said that he is a full time cater for her. Since Wilmot did not know me,  Dhamsa had taken the  group photo from our  Bentota  RU and pointed me to him to tell him that the one in the photo was the one chatting with him. I told herthat I will visit her with some others on a subsequent visit but unfortunately it is not to be.
Our deepest sympathies go to  Wilmot and the other members of her family.
Praxy and Ranjit
