  1. Our heartfelt condolences to Thayalam mami, Patrick and Sarah. Rajan mama is my mother’s (Padma) first cousin. We have known him as a very soft-natured person. He will be missed dearly.


  2. I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of dear Rajan Patta. Though our meetings be it in SL, Dubai or Patis were few and too short, he was always full of kindness and caring whenever we spoke..
    Our deepest condolences also to Thayalam Ammamma, Patrick and Sarah.
    Thank you also to both Rajan Patta and Thayalam Ammamma for the time and effort taken to come to my wedding in Paris, France in 2015. Sadly, that was the last opportunity we had to take a photo with you.
    You may be gone, Patta, but the memories of your kind face, beautiful words and your ever present kindness will stay on with us forever.


  3. Puvenendran was my class mate at St.John’s College, Jaffna, Sri Lanka. We were together from standard 4 to the senior class level. I never met him after leaving St. John’s College. He was of a quiet personality respecting every ones views.May I convey my deepest sympathies to the family.


    • Our heartfelt condolences to the whole family. We lived opposite Rajan’s house during our school days. My Mum became a young widow with three small children and Rajan’s family was a tower of strength to my Mum. We can never forget the love they bestowed on our family during those young days. I remember Rajan as a very kind hearted gentle person and was so very happy that we got connected again a couple of years ago and have been in touch on Facebook and WhatsApp. May our loving Lord comfort you all at this time of grief. May his soul Rest In Peace.
      Mahendran and Ranjana Selvanayagam


    • My Deepest sympathies to his family members.Rajan was a very quiet and friendly person.I came to know him after my marriage to Late Mr Thanapalan.He is his first cousin.My sympathies to Indran,Pillai and their families.
