Subject: Former Thomian teacher Mrs Rani Perera passed away this morning



Received the sad news of the demise of Mrs Rani Perera who passed away at the age of 85. She had had her dinner and later the carer noted she was coughing but had said she is okay. In the early hours of the morning she had been gasping for breath and then passed away peacefully.
Her only son Ravi is expected from the US on Friday and funeral details will be notified later.
Her body will lie at the Mahinda Florist Funeral Parlor Mt. Lavinia.

Sorry to worry you, do you know where the body is now? I go abroad this evening
I meant Ranee Perera, who had the guts to come in to see me when Illangakoon was back in the saddle. A great and lovable lady
