|The Herald Sri Lanka
It was with much sadness that we did hear of the passing away of John -
We have such wonderful memories of Rev. T and all of you and do thank God for His wise providence that brought us to Strathroy East in 1981 to "fill in" for Rev. T, as he recovered from his open heart surgery. He was a wonderful mentor and pastor and became a dear friend, who continued to keep in touch with us and support our ministry in Sri Lanka in different ways - most of all through his inspirational and vibrant writings which graced our denominational Magazine - "The Herald".
I am what I am today, because of good Pastors like Rev T and we would thank God upon every remembrance of him.
Until that day, we pray that the Lord would grant you all His peace and comfort and our simple tribute to Rev. T would be summarized in the words of our Lord - "Well done good and faithful servant."
With every blessing and our love.
