  1. I knew Ruban for a very long time & we were friends since then. Our family is very attached & close to his family & we were good family friends too. He was humble, generous, jovial, caring, helpful & understanding. He had a heart for the poor & needy. God had a plan & purpose in his life & He drew Ruban closer to Him during his sick bed. He changed him wonderfully & delivered him as His own. All our prayers didn`t go in vain. God answered every single prayer. He was loved by every one. His priority was his wife, son & family. He loved them very much & made them happy. God honored his heart`s desires & he was able to see them happening in his life time. Very sad to loose a good friend but on the other side, glad that he is with the Lord. His memories are fresh in our hearts & they will last for ever. He is absent from the body but present with the Lord. We hope to see him one day. We miss you Ruban so much & we say good bye till we meet you again. We will continue to uphold Nimma & Nirushan in our prayers. May God comfort you all.

  4. We have known Ruban Somanathan for over 20 years and become good friends. He was a genuine person and ever ready to help anybody in need. Very humble in heart yet always walked tall before others. He set an example for others to follow. He loved his family very much and very proud of his son, Joel. He wanted the best for his wife Nimma and cared for her very much. He was a guy who wouldn’t show his affection openly but cared for people very much. We have lost a good friend but his memories will last forever. May his soul REST IN PEACE.


  5. Dear Nima acca, Joel, Somina, Devina, Manju, Luxmi, Jeyanthan, Niruba & Brinda

    We are going to miss our dear, proud brother Ruban anna and his loss is irreplaceable in this earth all time. However,
    This life is not the end. We thank God for Ruban Anna’s life, he is pain and disease free now. Yes, it is very hard to accept that he is no longer with us in the physical realm but we ‘ll see him soon at our Father’s house.
    “because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay. You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭16:10-11‬ ‭NIVUK‬‬

    …..The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away;
    may the name of the Lord be praised.”Job 1:21

    Lord, thank you that we can, in Christ, look forward to a resurrected body and an eternity in the presence of God, where there is fullness of joy and pleasures for evermore. We pray that you will pour out your abundance of supernatural comfort and strength from above on each of us to comfort each other. Amen


  6. Tribute to my most genuine uncle ever!
    My uncle was such a intelligent man, He put his family first with not just his word but with his actions most importantly. He is a man that can come into a room and bring such joy out of everyone. He is a funny, handsome, loving and caring uncle. I am always going to remember our good memories such as you giving a complete stranger money. I say you were a unique Christian because you really were a man of love which not a lot of people shows nowadays. May you rest in peace. We will see each other soon in Heaven! So Goodbye for now and see you later!
