    Who ask him to go?

    Lalith Gunadasa Sunday, 19 February 2012 12:20 AM

    Do not stand at my grave and weep,
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circling flight.
    I am the soft star-shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.

    Good Bye Brother!! All Sri Lankans are with you and your family.

    Glad to see not a single government politician in sight. Heard they had been chased away when they attempted to visit the funeral house, which is a good sign for the future.

    His body now free of pain, may his soul rest in peace. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let thy perpetual light shine upon him.

    It is very sad that a husband and a father is killed in vain. Where are we heading to ? The power is more important than a human life ?

    The police thugs responsible for this murder must be brought to justice!

    Heartbreaking to see the loss of a innocent life and a helpless family grieving just because a trigger happy cop decided to take the law into his own hands on orders from the very top people of this land,.

    It is heart breaking to see the agony of the kids and the family. This is a cold blooded murder. Shame on the person who aimed and pulled the trigger.
