    Dear Ravi, Shala, Nili, Romesh and Roshi

    As I was on retreat it was a week later that I heard the sad news and watched the last farewell video of Rosemary. I am still thinking of her and of the very happy friendship I had with both your amma and thaththa. Your amma was an extra sister I had when I lived in Melbourne always ready to help, chat or get advice from. Since then we have been in touch wherever we were and finally I was lucky to have them both in Colombo when I got back here. No amount of words can describe her personality, she was such a wonderful person to say the least and memories of her will live on in all those whose lives she touched. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies, and thank you for including me in her story.

    Much love
    Aunty Gita

  3. Thank you to all of the Weeremantry family for sharing and including me in this last farewell to an amazing lady. It was a wonderful service and revealed many interesting sides of Aunty Rosemary that I didn’t already know of. Both Uncle Christy and Aunty Rosemary will live on in my memory for the nice people that they were in life. Their legacy lives on in their children and families that carry on with the same love and friendship. May God bless them all!

  4. Dearest Ravi, Shala, Romesh, Nil and Roshi,
    Your Amma was a very special person who was full of joy, got everyone up dancing the baila and a sing song with her piano playing and so generous and warm to everyone she met.
    I am so sorry I couldn’t come for the funeral and hope to see all of you over the next few days if that’s possible.
    Love and hugs,

  5. Sending our deepest sympathies to your family. Aunty Rosemary always had a heart warming smile and a loving personality. Thank you for sharing this honourable service, celebrating her life.

  6. To Ravi, Shala, Nilli, Romesh, Roshi and families, my deepest condolences to you all. I will always remember Aunty Rosemary’s big smile, great laughter and the welcoming good times of my childhood holidays with the Weeramantrys. Your dear Mum put up with our antics. A beautiful lady with a big heart who will be greatly missed. I’m sorry I could not be there with you yesterday. May Aunty rest in eternal peace with the angels. With all my love to you.

  7. My deepest Sympathies to the Weeramantry families. We will miss your madam dearly.

    Thank you for all the memories you shared of your precious Amma. She radiated joy, love, thoughtfulness, care and humility wherever she was.

    Amma and Thatha were a special, unforgettable couple! It was our privilege as neighbours to see all of you grow up in a happy home where we also spent many happy hours.

    Now the time has come to say goodbye to a friend we will always remember with deep love.

    Accept our heartfelt care and sympathy – always remember there will be a special place in our hearts for all of you.

    Love and Hugs Aunty Rohini and Uncle Terry

  9. A fitting farewell to a kind-hearted, charitable lady… A well organised service beautifully carried-out by all who loved her… much appreciated!
    Now that she has fulfilled God’s will on earth with her mission accomplished, we can all be happy and take comfort in knowing that God the Father will take her in to His Kingdom to reunite with all others already there. We thank God for her life…
    Good Night & God Bless Rosemary, may you,

  11. Dear Ravi, Shalini, Romesh, Nilmini and Roshini,
    Aunty Rosemary was the most joyous person. I had the pleasure of spending time with her and Judge Weeramantry at their busy apartment in Colombo. She made my days with WICPER so enjoyable with our cups of tea on the balcony. She was a great lady and those and all my very fond memories will be in my heart.

    With our deepest sympathy and all our love,
    Mario, Gayle, Hamish and Heather Subramaniam

  12. A beautiful ceremony and such loving memories shared for a remarkable lady who lived life.
    Farewell Rosemary. My dearest thoughts and condolences to each family member.

  13. Such a beautiful service. Rosemary would have been proud of her lovely send off. We will miss her trips to London and her cheerful, larger than life personality, especially her laugh. She was loved by all. My deepest condolences to Ravi, Shala, Nili, Rom, Roshi and the rest of her grandchildren/family. May she now rest in peace.

  14. We will miss our wonderful, jolly and ageless friend, Rosemary. As I write this, I remember her sparkling eyes and hear her laugh. Between The Netherlands, Sri Lanka and Australia we couldn’t meet up as often as we would have liked, but the memories are as fresh as ever. We will miss her. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the family she leaves behind.

  15. Heartfelt sympathies to loving family.
    Such a pleasant personality. We will always remember your smiling face love frpm Therese

  16. Beautiful service was thankful we could participate from US . Rosemary was my childhood friend and we spent our youth together such funfilled wonderful days. Your mum and grandma had so many suitors but. Christy won her heart in the end. I married her cousin Bubsy whose brother Eustace married Christelle. So we ended up being family. Dad and mum spent many work\holiday time with us in LA and it was such a joy to have them. Beautiful memories of two lovely people.we spent a few weeks with them in SL and again fun and wonderful hosts. My prayers love . Losing a parent is profound but she gave you all so much love to sustain you through your lives. God bless. Aunty Daphne from Los Angeles..

  17. Dear Ravi, Shala, Romesh, Nili and Roshi,
    What a deeply touching service. You all made Aunty Rosemary come to life through your words. I could see her right there in front of me. Please accept my sincere condolences. She loved you all so much. And she continues to do so from afar. I hope to make it to Melbourne some day soon and pay my respects in person. May she rest in peace.

  18. Dear Romesh

    Our deepest condolences to you and and your family. Based on the above comments, I am sure you have been greatly blessed with a loving mother whose infectious laughter is infectious. . May your fond memories of her keep your smiling.

  20. Dearest Ravi, Shalini, Romesh, Nilmini and Roshini – Thank you so much for including us in this absolutely beautiful service for Aunty Rosemary! It was a beautiful sermon and the photos of her life really captured her beautiful, fun-loving and generous spirit! She was a great lady and will always be in our hearts. With deepest sympathy and much love, Iromie and Roland

  21. Our sympathies to the entire family.
    Thank you for enabling us to participate in the proceedings.
    It was a very moving Requiem Mass
    Rosema (as we called her) was a true friend with an extremely generous heart.
    I had known her for over 50 years and have so many fond memories of our friendship.
    Rosema was the nucleus of connecting our group in Sri Lanka.
    We hope all the children will keep in touch with us.
    Please send the video of proceedings to show Gita who was away on a retreat at the time.
    Love to everyone,
    Aunty Ajitha & Uncle Nalin

  23. Dear Ravi, all my cousins, and all the “children”…what a lovely service and what a loving tribute to a kind, generous and magnificent person. I have such fond memories of Aunty Rosemary…her laughter, her sense of humor, lovely visits and conversations.

I wish you all love, light and peace, and may her joy remain with you always.

  25. ‘Rosma’ was my playmate and later my lifelong cherished and beloved friend. We grew up but we never grew old, because we were tied to the beautiful memories of our past, especially our childhood. Goodbye my ever-young, ever-smiling friend. I will miss your infectious laugh.

  26. Madam was a wonderful, kind lady who made my 1st job, one of the best times in my life. I am thankful for your presence which supported Judge and the WICPER team to achieve all we did. She was an integral part of the WICPER team, always supporting us with her wise words and keeps us in fits of laughter with her jokes. She always made sure we were well taken care of and always joined us on our projects. Thank you for all you were to all of us Madam! I will miss you terribly!

  28. To Madam, thank you for brining so much joy to my 1st job. You were there for all of us, through every project and assignment, supporting us with great food and warmth.

Im thankful for all the great times we had with you, and I will miss you terribly!

    My deepest sympathies to the family and God bless you all

  30. A wonderful service o celebrate a generous, loving and energetic woman, mother and wife, whose sense of humour was refreshing and inspiring. And she was a patient one too, as she struggled to explain to me how to make lampries and how we would take Ravi home late at home to find her waiting to feed us rice to sober us up. My commiserations and sadness to all of your family at your loss, but I know her spirit will live with you all forever.
    Love Peter

  31. What a touching service to a very special person. I will remember always her infectious laugh. Thank you for letting us all share in this. With love to you all, ravi, roshi, romesh, nilli and shala. She was a real shining light to all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

  33. I have never met such a wonderful and inspirational lady who was an example of the Proverbs 32 Woman and eternally grateful for the opportunities we had to sit with her, chat with her and learn from her for a short 10 years when she made working with Judge Weeramantry even more wonderful and enjoyable. I love you and will forever miss you May you rest is peace with Our Lord Jesus for eternity beautiful Mrs Rosemary Weeramantry
