Grandpa loved his family and friends 

Granddad was a very loving  and considerate person who loved his family and friends
very much indeed.  Our thoughts are with those who knew Granddad.

We  are all very grateful for the way Granddad loved us all. Our thoughts
also go out to Grandma and others who helped him during his life and we thank them all
dearly. Our  thoughts go out to you all.

We all miss you

 Appappa was a nice, caring and a helpful person. He would always make sure we were all alright,
and he gave us plenty of helpful advice. He was loved by everyone, and always will be by his friends and family.
We will all miss him and be grateful for his friendliness and kindness. Rest in Peace Appappa.

Hope I will make him proud 

When I was young Appappa would  take me for walks all the time. He will always tell me proverbs,
stories and give advice.When we left home he would always send me letters with proverbs and sayings-at least 8 pages long! 

I  have always felt that Appappa gave me my knowledge and for that I  will always  and eternally grateful to him.
He always wanted to help me improve myself as a human being and always gave me advice, even when we last
went to Canada in February, 1999. I just hope that I will make him proud by going to university  and studying for my degree.

Thank you Appappa.

With love.

 Letters from grandfather to grandson

 Colombo

3-9-88

Loving Seran,

 Amma and I are very glad to know your good progress report. Please keep it up. You must do regular work at home . Here is a small poem-

              “Work while you work
                Play while you play
               That is the best rule
  
            As all can say” 

I am writing a short story. It is a good story. Story of good lion and a good cow. Then tell the story in your class. All your friends will also like it. It shows that even animals can be good. Then they can become God. Try to think it is a true story. 

You must be good always. Then God will bless you. 

For many days the lion and cow were starving. Both were together. Lion refused to eat the cow, and the cow refused to go home. So God was very pleased with both. He made them also God.

 Appappa

Loving Seran

We are O.k. here and hope the same with you all. How are you progressing in your studies?
I am enclosing some useful notes for you. Get dad to explain and read them for you. You must find the time for it.
Here is something about the power of love.
Love binds parents and child. This is for parents to know. Give your child all the love he needs.

Give him care
Give him your time
Give him opportunities
Give him encouragement
Give him responsibilities
Give him the right to be different
Give him Praise
Give him understanding
Give him re-assurance
Give him everything he needs 

Last night aunt from  Canada telephoned. Please teach Amara also good things that will help her. May God bless you all.

 Loving Appappa
