Dear Sriyan,It is with great sadness I heard of the passing of Percy Gunasena,whom I introduced to you at our house a few years ago.
Apart from his illustrious career as the Head of Gunasenas where we all went to with our booklists, he broke new ground when appointed as the first Buddhist Head Prefect of S.Thomas’s.He will be fondly remembered by all who knew him.May he travel well on the path to Nibbana.Leca
