Paul Perera’s 80th Birth Anniversary falls today
Tribute to a father
My family has been touched by the many who shared
our loss at this difficult time. From the venerable clergy,
President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe,
Senior Judges, Members of Parliament and other political bodies,
friends from the media, the BOI and the political associates of my
father from the Gampaha and Colombo districts, there were also many
from overseas who expressed their sincere sympathies on the passing
away of Paul Perera.
