Lucian was ailing for some time with kidney failure and was on dialysis three days a week. Fortunately for him, one of his former House Officers who is now the Nephrologist at Maligakanda Hospital was able to do the needful free of charge in his Unit at the hospital. The last time I met him was about a month ago when Jayaratnam (from UK) was on holiday here. This picture was taken on that occasion.

I also wish to insert a few other pictures taken in happier times. Lucien attended our 50th Anniversary Reunion at Chaya Tranz in Hikkaduwa in 2012.

  1. It is sad to hear of the loss of yet another from our batch of 1962. I remember Lucien as a quiet confident medical student. Our paths never crossed and we never met after 1967. May he have Eternal Peace
