Subject: Sad news; another of our batch mates disappears from our lot

Hi Philip

Just to share the very sad news of one of our batch mates who passed away peacefully.

Vernon was a very sincere and a helpful colleague who continued to remain in the motherland to serve the sick.  He was very caring and attended to the health needs of the local community with dignity and with humility.

We can offer our deepest sympathies to his surviving family members.

I am copying the obituary notice which appears in the Daily News of 13.05.2013.

For relaying
Old friend
Before university
And medical college days from Templars rd  Mt Lavinia
In march when i visited
He was not available
Known his parents. The Sr Dr Abey
And vernon did not show much of an interest in travelling
Though he had  an open invitation
To visit us and see cinti and USa

Cannot ever recollect  any disagreement between us
I saw him often as i went 2/3 times per yr to Ceylon then
Later Lanka
Pandi and I with a couple of others met him regularly
He was very quiet
Never controversial
Always a good friend.
No one was aware of any illness
Even after he moved the office acros Galle Rd to the sea side.
May he rest in peace
And attain the highest level of Enlightenment.
With love and fond memories 
Bernard De Silva
Late Sheila de Silva
Templar rd Mt
Vista av Cincinnati USA
