Dear Pearl

Sad news of a  loss of another of our batch mates.
I have not had any contact with him since medical college days, nor did I recollect meeting him in any of our batch reunions.

You may be aware of the death of Dinil Wickremasuriya ( another of our batch mates) few days ago. The cremation is on the 25th (Wednesday ) st Kemnal Park Crematorium BR7 6RR at 3PM.

Sorry that I did not contact you for quite sometime and did not meet you for a long time as well.

Yes I am hoping to be at the ReUnion on the 7th July and I am aware of your attendance as I communicate with Wedi , Philip and Asoka often.
