Luke Nellikunnel (Lukachan)When a friend is going through grief it can be as though you are experiencing the same grief with them. A good heart has stopped breathing, a good soul ascended to heaven. With half a century of friendship including taking part in the wedding of Philip and Ammini. I was honoured to be their best man. All his life in Canada, he lived in London, Ontario. He was a good "56" player. Whenever, wherever, he heard "56", he will be there. People enjoyed his presence, sharp comments and jokes. I extend my deepest sympathies to Ammini and children. May the soul of your husband/father be at peace with our heavenly Father.
