Subject: Exciting visit
My wife and I along with our daughter
wish to express our sincere thanks for the gracious manner
in which you showed your appreciation to a teacher who was
fortunate to touch your life, nearly fifty years ago. It was
very nice to meet with you and go back to those years-very
formative for you- and rewarding for me. I am indeed proud
of your achievements in life.We were also happy to meet your
daughter. She had all the qualities one expects from a daughter
and we were indeed much taken up by her unassuming, charming
manner. I am sure your older daughter would also be like her
and hope that we may also be able to meet her sometime in
Your skills, besides your professional skills, speak volumes
about you. We enjoyed the freshly baked 'hoppers' and also
the excellent curries, sambol and wade. I know the amount
of time and effort you put in to come over and demonstrate
your esteem for a person who was responsible for moulding
your life nearly half a century ago.
I have spoken to my sister and brother-in-law about your
visit. Unfortunately, they were away in San Francisco during
your visit otherwise you would have been able to meet them.
I also informed my sister in Brisbane, Australia about the
great surprise on 'Labor Day' when you visited us. My nephew,
Rohan Chinivasagam also lives in Brisbane. I also described
your visit to him and also to his sister.
We are going to keep in touch and I know you have put your
heart and soul to keep the STCG Flag flying, as it did during
our time. This may be an impossible task, but, one can always
say, " I tried".
Thank you very much. Your visit was very rewarding and I
will always treasure it.
