    Dear Kelvin:

    It gives us great sorrows to hear the death of your dear Dad and our wonderful brother in Christ. He was a great inspiration in our Church and we all miss him. We are also praying for all his four dear children that the Lord will grant joy peace and blessings and take away your tears and sorrows. We are always with you. Because of my brother's sons wedding on 27th, we could not come to Bombay for his funerals. Be of good cheer as we all have to leave this world one day sooner or later. So prepare to meet the Lord. May God bless all of you.
    Uncle Frank, Udupi
