Please do convey our deepest sympathies to his wife and
family. Sarah was truly a pillar of 1960 Medical Batch ,
Colombo. He was always in the forefront for organising
those fantastic re-unions. He will be sadly missed.

Sriyani and I are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend. We had a very long, close friendship sharing many ups and downs in life. When we visited him in July we had a long chat talking about the good old days and having a laugh. I am pleased I introduced him into the committee of the Kandy Sports Club where he succeeded me as the president when I left for UK. He gave his all to the club even after he was struck down by his nasty illness. I am proud to say he did an excellent job and it appeared to be a lifeline for him. He’ll be sadly missed by my family. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to Kanthi, Shivi, Nango and Manisha. May he attain Nibbana!

Very sorry to hear the sad news of Sarath. I like to extend my sympathies to his family. We were in the same dissecting group, he was such a tease, a bane of our lives. But always full of fun.

Deeply saddened to hear that 'Kapu' has passed on.Thankful to him; others for all the efforts taken to put together the many batch reunions we have had over the years.As an expat living in the USA since 1971, I have found these gatherings a great way to maintain our med school friendships.
I first met Kapu on entering med school. We would get together as a small group to study before exams, party thereafter; in general have a good time; it very much helped in offsetting the stresses & requirements of the medical school curriculum. He was always a positive &; cheerful participant ; a ready helper. Above all a great friend.
He had advised me of his medical situation some time ago &; he has gamely endured some years of hardship as a result.
To him I say 'Rest in Peace my friend.You have lived the good life'
To Kanthi &; family, Our Heartfelt Sympathies,
from Chandran; Premanila Ponnambalam & family.

Dear Friends, Our dear dear dear Friend Sarath !
It is with a very very heavy heart that I write this mail to you all. I was dewastated with the news, although he did tell me about it at our last get to gather. I did not however expect it so soon.
He was a very close friend of mine as he no doubt to many of you all too. He never had a bad word for anyone: he always had an open ear for any of us, and he was always friendly and helpful. For this he had mountains of friends.
He was of immense help in organising the medical exhibition, in organising the visit of the British Council medical students and for so many other innumerable MSU activities including the final year trip. I do not have to mention the organising, with others, of the many get to gathers. He was only a few of a kind.
I will, as you all will, sorely miss him.
I extend my very sincere sympathies to his loving wife and his daughters and sons-in- law.
Dear Kapuwa, you will be very sadly missed by all of us.
May you attain Nibbana.
Goodbye dear friend,
Derryck and no doubt all of us?

Thank you for sharing the very sad news of the death of our close friend and batch mate Kapu.
We could only share our sincere thoughts with his surviving family at this time of their great loss and grief.
He would be very sadly missed by his surviving family, his close relatives and his friends and associates alike as he was a very dynamic, active and ever so helpful colleague.
Even during his last spell of his deteriorating ill health, he was very alert, and continued to show his sincerity and companionship.
As you say he was the live wire and showed so much energy and determination to organise all the Batch Get Togethers almost single handed and to the satisfaction of everyone.
We could appreciate on reflection, all his excellent qualities and we would miss him very much.
Please convey our deepest sympathies to Kanthi and his surviving family.
May he attain the eternal bliss of Nibbhana.

He helped us to keep the reunions,and camaraderie of the 1960 entrants.
Though we were like 300 in numbers his friendsip was personal to each and everyone.Two instances for me was how he found the time to invite myself and Punya alongwith Karals for an enjoyable dinner long years ago on one of our visits to S L.
On another occasion during our first reunion at Habarana when I could not make him out,after his illness,he came straight to me from some distance to give that welcoming " slap" on the back.
Though rather persona,l I thought I should record this at this sad time for us to understand how lucky we have been to have such friends in good times and bad times.
Our sympathies to dear Kanthi and the children.
May you attain the Supreme Bliss of Nibbana before long in this Samsaic Life.
