  4. Dear Rita and Kailash
    I have always known that you married into an incredibly close family. With the help of all this technology even though physically far apart this sad, sad event has brought you ever closer together. You have bravely said that you will get through this. With Jeeva living on in your heart and the hearts of all who knew him, you will.
    Our love to you – Vanessa and George

  5. It was such an honour to have met you Captain Mark.
    You were always so happy and I really appreciate that you wanted to spend time with me and tell me your stories, or have a long discussion about something.
    Mark was very welcoming of my husband Shentot during his visits to Australia from Indonesia, even before we got married. I am very grateful that he tried to help my husband feel comfortable.
    I will miss you Mark. Especially when you would try to interrupt all the time while I was trying to talk to Rita. You would want to stop our conversation midway to tell me all about your television, viewing schedule. I really did want to hear all about it. Hilarious.
    Lots of good memories.
    Safe journey my friend.
    Watch over us all from the gardens of heaven.

  6. Rita,
    My sincere condolences to you, your son & family on your loss.
    May Jeeva’s soul rest in peace.

  7. To Rita, Kailash and Markandoo Family

    Our heartfelt condolences to you all and we share the grief as Capt Mark was a good friend who visited our house with Rita in Upper Thomson Road long back. His departure came all of a sudden and can understand the loss felt by you as well as his good friends but nevertheless, let us all live our life with good memories of him in many gatherings and with his unstoppable smile.

    Mark will always be remembered.

  10. Hi Jeeva Anhe,
    The anchor is released and the flag is at half mast while the ship blasts its horn. The marine officers in their suits line up on the deck to bid you farewell. An official salute to an officer and a gentleman. Wishing you a peaceful glide down the 7 seas and into the arms of heaven! You will be missed and memories will be cherished!

  13. Dear Rita & Kailash,

    First, our heartfelt condolences and we are still in a state of shock. We have known Jeeva for a very long long time and we stayed close all the years. It has been hard writing these lines, because we couldn’t find the exact words to describe our close relationship that we shared and enjoyed. One of the most generous person that we know of, very easy going & simple and a true dedicated friend.

    Over the last few years, we have spent time in each other’s house many times and we always enjoyed his company. I recall in 2010 when we visited Melbourne and he was returning to Singapore, without any hesitation he offered us his home to use during our visit to Melbourne.

    In the last few years, either in KL or Singapore, we would enjoy wine or beer till the wee hours. Just two weeks before his passing we had a great chat about his weight gain and i was so happy for him.

    Rita, we are sorry that we could not attend but he will always remain in our minds and heart.

    Love
    Mohan & Yoges

  15. Dear Rita & Kailash,

    Our thoughts are with you.
    Mark was a friend, who will be missed and certainly remembered by all of us who knew him.

    We will celebrate his life and have a beer in his memory.

    Take care and keep safe.

    Regards

    1. Dear Rita and Kailash,
      My sincere condolences.
      We (his brother, sisters, and I) travelled the world with Jeeva at the dinner table in the Nee Soon apartment while eating the delicious meal your grandmother made. These are fond memories when we were young. He always had a contagious smile.
      I will miss him.

    My dearest cousin Jeeva,
    It is shocking and hard to believe that you are not there in this life for me to meet you again my brother. All the memories about you was so much fun, laughter, good food and of course a good drinks. You are one person who never failed to meet me when ever you sailed into Port Klang. We had spent great times hanging out together . You never failed to amuse us with your sailing Stories. You had such a great sense of humour, we all would look forward for the next time you sail back to Port Klang or to meet you in Singapore. Looking back, I feel blessed and privileged to grow up together and spend our younger days. You have been always in my mind and in my prayers, even though we could not keep in touch as we lived across oceans. I will miss you very much my dear brother. May your soul rest in peace in the comfort of the Lord. So long Capt until we meet again. “OM NAMAH SIVAYA”

  30. And suddenly we are unable to speak to you. RIP my bro in law. You were a tough guy at the same time someone who showed my sister the different rainbows that life can bring. Thank you for that…
    Till we meet you someday in heaven…

  31. We cannot believe that you are gone so suddenly. We cannot believe that we will never ever be able to see your beautiful smile again. We will miss you, Jeeva (Captain Mark)
