KARUNARATNE, Mrs RUKMANI – We, the family members, wish to offer merit to the Venerable Maha Sangha for the religious services and express our sincere thanks to our friends, relations and well wishers for their kindness and support during the bereavement of the beloved wife, mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. We are so touched by all those who came to pay their last respects, sent condolences, floral tributes and assisted us in many ways that gave us comfort and solace during this period of sorrow. Our inability to thank you individually is deeply regretted. Tissa Karunaratne, Yuraji, Vishmi, Dhammika Attygalle, Keminda and Duminda. No.180, Yakkala Road, Gampaha. 119712.
