Memorial of death anniversary of Ranjith Peiris

Memorial of death anniversary of Ranjith Peiris
Born 24th June 1959. Passed away 29th November 2016
Day you went away
Today’s the anniversary
Of the day that we lost you,
And for a time it felt as through
Our lives had ended too.

But loss has taught us many things
And now we face each day,
With hope and happy memories
To help us our way.

And though we are full of sadness
That you’re no longer here,
Your influence still guide us
And we still feel you near.

What we shared will never die
It lives within our hearts,
Bringing strength and comfort
While we are apart.

Ever loving Ann (wife), Roshan (Son), Tania (Daughter), Dirk (Son-in-Law),
and Luna (Granddaughter)
