February 23, 2013 "The thoughts of Tony give me a special emotion. He was a true sportsman and a gentleman to the core and I can never forget his lively commentary. I really feel that his death is untimely. He could have lived for many more years.

Here is a small poem from me that might reflect his epitaph.

Upon this grave

Light not a lamp
upon this grave.
In it may perish
little flies.

Plant not a tree
upon this grave.
In it may sit a nightingale
and sing a lamenting song.

Write not an epitaph
upon this grave.
It may not last
In the course of passing winds.

Drop not a tear
upon this grave.
In it lies a living yore,
I am swept into an unknown shore.

Seasons are my friends,
Every spring is an endless cascade .
Here, the passing winds are mine
The dale of love is synonym.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" - Subramanian A (Palakkad, Canterbury)
