    Cynthia has said it all so well. I echo the eloquent words she wrote.

    Avonia, Terry and I love her forever. She was a light, a gift in our lives for over 50

  • Arasu Saravanamuttu

    Whenever we met in Melbourne it was interesting to talk to Mahal our cousin who use to relate to us the family history in the 50s and 60s. We were young kids during that period.
    Our condolences to the rest of the family as we will miss another senior member of the family.

    Mahal rest in peace and may you be united with the rest of the family in eternity.
    God bless you.

    Arasu.

    To Uncle Brian, Tehara, Windham and Family and Ravel, Jackie and Family. A Wonderful Service for a Glamourous and Beautiful Person Mahal. I was left with a lot of tears watching the Service of This Great Lady. I was so happy to spend quality time with her in Melbourne, at her home. Taking her Shopping, especially grocery shopping, Doctors appointments and the Great Chats I enjoyed with her. Frequent Visits with my Twin Brother Ari to her home and the Sara Stories she would relate to us with a lot of Humour. Most of which We had not heard before. I Will Miss You Mahal for the Great Chats at night with a great amount of Laughter in the earley hours of the morning, when you could not sleep!!!!! I Treasure the time I spent with you as History Will never Repeat. I am Left With Golden Memories of You Mahal, which I Will Treasure , Till we meet Again, In Gods Loving Care, Love you Always with Loads of Hugs and Kisses.

  • Susan. Shakespeare . nee Raffel.

    It has been such a privilege to be with you all at my darling friend Mahal’s thanksgiving service.
    She and I have been friends since childhood, and though we didn’t meet often, we spoke to each other and communicated by text messages over the years. Mahal has been such a beautiful person , kind, compassionate, loving and caring. But always with that wicked sense of humour too.
    Tehara it has been wonderful to hear your loving tribute to your Mama, and the words of other friends and family too.
    Ravelle and Tehara I send you as well as Brian and the beautiful grandchildren all my love and deepest sympathy. We shall always remember what Mahal meant to each of us.
    May she rest in peace and rise in glory. God bless you all in your loss.

  • Arly Abeyratne
