On behalf of all your batch mates of the 1960 entrants Batch, The Colombo Medical Faculty.
Click on the link below to hear this perennial favourite:-

Dean Martin - Memories are made of this
Sweet, sweet memories you gave-a me
you can't beat the memeories you gave-a me

Take one fresh and tender kiss
Add one stolen night of bliss
One girl, one boy
Some grief, some joy
Memories are made of this

Don't forget a small moonbeam
Fold in lightly with a dream
Your lips and mine
Two sips of wine
Memories are made of this

Then add the wedding bells
One house where lovers dwell
Three little kids for flavour
Stir carefully through the days
See how the flavour stays
These are the dreams you will savour

With His blessings from above
Serve it generously with love
One man, one wife
One love through life
Memories are made of this
Memories are made of this

Recalling younger days

The cartoon by Collette in the Daily News, after the Law-Medical match in 1960, when our batch as 'block juniors' raided the Nurses Training School Hostel. All became very respectable Adults later in life.

to me
Dear colleagues
It is with great sadness I wish to bring to your kind notice the demise of (Dr ) Kumudinii de Silva wife of our beloved friend M B S.

Please share this with all our colleagues and give your sup[port to MBS and family.


Kumi's Funeral etc.

Very sad news indeed but I believe was not unexpected .
I am aware that MBS & his close family provided 24 hour total care with dedication & love to make Kumi survive comfortably and with dignity .
Kumi was a great survivor till the end.
She would be greatly missed by her surviving family and all her relatives and friends.
We can only share our sincere thoughts at this time of the great loss & grief.

Please share our deepest sympathies with MBS & his family.

Best wishes

You may have already heard the sad news of the death of Kumi who died peacefully at home surrounded by MBS & family yesterday morning.

The funeral services are to be held on Saturday ( as a private cremation).

I have spoken with MBS and he is holding on.

Could you kindly share the sad news also with Wickremachandran, Kumar Gunawardena and any other close friends.

Hello Philip,
This is to give you some sad news. Meththa Kurukulasooriya (Muniratna) from our batch passed away two days ago in Melbourne.
She had pulmonary fibrosis and required oxygen. I am not sure what the terminal event was.
Please pass this on to the rest of the batch.
