Goodbye Prof.

Yesterday I attended Prof. VK Samaranayake's funeral proceedings which took place on a gloomy onset, as if the sky was about to break down and cry but was holding off so to not cause any discomfort to the event.

A quick look at the online condolence guest book is all thats needed to see the variety of people's lives he has touched.
