  1. I never met Mr. Ananda but I am connected to his brother Anura by marraige. I am Nirupa’s sister.
    Very serene and well organised ceremony.
    My deepest Sympathies to the family.
    If he is to be born again in this world, let it be amongst the Kalyana Mitta who will enable him to find the path to the supreme bliss of Nirvana.

  2. Very saddened to hear we have lost Ananda. My deepest sympathy to his family. Ananda was a lovely kind and funny man and I found his laugh to be contagious. Great memories working with him at Emirates. Rest in peace.

  3. Ananda you were the first person I met when I first stepped foot at the Emirates office in August 2001 and still remember your smile. As a gentleman, you brought warmth, cheer, laughter and happiness to those around you. You were generous and kind and always shared your thoughts and knowledge when called upon.
    May you Soul Rest In Peace.
    Our deepest condolences to the family

  4. May you attain supreme bliss of Nibbana. Hope and prey the family faces these sad moments with resilience and gain strength from the blessings of the tripple gem.

  12. Dear Ananda our Kalyana Mithraya, We were shocked, you have been in touch with us daily but kept us in the dark. You didn’t want us to worry . That’s your nature. We will miss you always.
    Our heartfelt condolences to Sumitra and daughter Thushara. Anura and family too.
    Good Bye! ! Dear friend. May you Attain Supreme Bliss of Nibbana in Sansara

  13. I am writing on behalf of all our friends – EX Thai Airways group who worked together at Thai Airways in Colombo since 1982 and until he migrated to Australia. Ananda was loved by all of us we treated him like our own family. We have a WhatsApp group and Ananda in his usual way would send so many funny stories. Once he uploaded some photographs of her daughter saying ‘ I am so proud of her ‘. We all know that Ananda led a very sad and lonely life during his last few years. How happy Ananda would have been if the good said about him at his funeral service were told to him when he was alive. Well that’s life. We all wish that Ananda s soul rests in peace.

  14. Ananda, you will always be remembered as a caring, fun-loving person with a big smile, willing to help and advise others. We shared some good times together at EK.
    Rest In Peace dear friend.

    Our condolences to all of Ananda’s family

  15. Dear Ananda Aiya,

    Your cheerfulness and your lovely voice is still reverberating in my mind and will always be. You were more than a cousin to me, you were a brother and a friend. You truly were an extrovert. You were in a class of your own and through tears you will bring smiles to us whenever we think of the memories we have of you.

    May your journey in samsara be short and may you attain the Supreme Bliss of Nibbana.

    Your loving cousin Neomal.

    My dear cousin Ananda,
    We will miss you. You were a very dear cousin whom we loved very much. How we played together as kids when you came over
    to Hikkaduwa from Colombo for school holidays are vivid memories in my mind.!

    As an adult, you always fulfilled your duties, sometimes you went out of your way so kindly and dutifully. You always made time
    in your busy schedule to visit my elder sister Sumana with gifts and made her so happy, every time you visited Sri-Lanka.

    In your latter part of your life, somehow, a vicious evil force maybe karma, drifted you away from your family, your happiness,
    and ultimately, your health.

    We will standby and support your amazing, loving, devoted, very respectable wife Sumithra, and your loving daughter Dushi.

    I pray wholeheartedly with my family that you attain the Supreme Bliss of Nibbana, my dear cousin.

    Your loving Amitha Akka.
