My saviour

My Father R.S. Velayudhan is no more with us. We lost our dad on 10th January, 1999. We children pray for your soul rest in peace.

How much I love you I can't say: It's more than words can hold.

You're all at once my rich, red clay,

My potter and my mold.

Yours the words that shaped my voice, The spirit within mine.

Yours the will that shaped my choice,

My fortune, and my sign.

How lucky I was to have had you

At the core of me!

Wise and good, you always knew

Just what I could be.

And so I came to be someone

Whom I could be proud of.

For this I give my swollen sum

Of gratitude and love.

The passing of a love one is often hard to bear.

Sometimes it mat be a blessing in disguise.

I had a very close friend of 40 years and he died having had Alzheimer's for many years. He died sans mind, sans the ability to eat and swallow.

Even his wife of some 44 years thought it was the best way to be.

Thank you
