  39. 46. <ul><li>Hi Aunty, </li></ul><ul><li>I came across a picture that I didn't really remember until I saw it again today after so many years. I believe it was clicked on my first birthday and there you were in the corner of the picture along with Victor and here we are looking at it again on your 75th birthday. How fast time as passed. </li></ul>I took a closer zoom of you, which I have attached and noticed with the passage of time, over the years you still look beautiful now, as you did back then, even with the snow white hair style. Still look amazing. I think you could give all the latest Hollywood & Bollywood actresses a pretty good run for their money. (continued on next slide…)
  40. 47. <ul><li>(…continued from previous slide) </li></ul><ul><li>Today on your birthday at 75, I guess it is safe to say that you have seen, said and done it all and can give each of us a tip or two on life. But if there is anything that you still dream of and wish for then, </li></ul><ul><li>In soft glowing candle light may all your dreams come true, </li></ul><ul><li>May every star in every night bring joy and peace to you, </li></ul><ul><li>And if ever there a special wish you want to come your way, </li></ul><ul><li>I pray to God in all his Glory may he grant it all to you today, </li></ul><ul><li>On your very special day. Happy 75th Birthday. </li></ul><ul><li>Have a great and wonderful day with </li></ul><ul><li>all your family, friends, near, dear loved </li></ul><ul><li>ones and have many more fabulous years </li></ul><ul><li>ahead to come. </li></ul><ul><li>Warmest birthday wishes to you. </li></ul><ul><li>dear Aunty </li></ul><ul><li>from Anita, Leslie & Lorraine </li></ul><ul><li>Goa, India </li></ul>
  41. 49. <ul><li>Dear Assumption, </li></ul><ul><li>This is your friend Ellen from Dubai remembering you on your Special Day today! </li></ul><ul><li>First of all I’d like to thank Valerie for re-connecting us through Facebook. Even though we haven’t met in person for many years now, you have always been on my mind and I have such fond memories of our good old days! </li></ul><ul><li>I have known you since the early days of my marriage, when we first met in Cola Colony in 1971. We spent many evenings together on the sand dunes sitting and talking about our lives. You told me a lot of things about you, your childhood and your marriage. Even though you went through tough times, you never let this reflect on your face or in your behavior. You took it all in your stride. </li></ul><ul><li>I wonder if you remember, in May 1972 I was expecting my first child and I was sick from nausea and vomiting most of the time. While Sham was at work, you came each morning to give me company, to feed me and to clean the mess I made. You looked after me like a mother. I will always love you for that! </li></ul><ul><li>(continued on next slide…) </li></ul>
  42. 50. <ul><li>(…continued from previous slide) </li></ul><ul><li>So on this day, your 75th birthday, Assumption, I just want you to know that I am proud and happy to have you as a most special friend and confidante. You are a wonderful human being and you make a real difference in every life you touch. Valerie and Victor are so blessed to have a mother like you - you have raised them well! Your life, since moving to the US has been, by all indications, remarkable and I predict that in the coming years-- and beyond -- will be even more so. </li></ul><ul><li>To you, Assumption, on this day, and every day, my very best wishes. I hope and pray that your life is forever filled with joy, peace, satisfaction, laughter, and even more grandchildren!! </li></ul><ul><li>My family joins me in wishing you A Very Happy 75th Birthday!!!! </li></ul><ul><li>Love you and miss you. Hope to see you someday soon!! </li></ul><ul><li>Your friend </li></ul><ul><li>Ellen Kolhatkar </li></ul><ul><li>Dubai, UAE </li></ul>
  43. 51. Tempe, Arizona
  44. 53. <ul><li>I hope you enjoy reading my poor attempt at writing poetry! </li></ul><ul><li>Thank you for your presence in our lives. </li></ul><ul><li>Count now, the75 candles on your birthday cake and think of the ones yet to stand! </li></ul><ul><li>Going down memory lane, I remember the first time ever I met your family – at Aunty Teresa’s house in Panjim. Then, we met Victor who’d come along to our place in Parra. And I met and went shopping with Valerie in Bombay a few years later. Thereafter, there was a void for many years. Until we picked up contact again. Thank you for keeping in touch. For showing your caring and sharing especially during our own painful times when our dear ones departed. Though time and tide kept on and off, you have successfully maintained contact with us as being part of our Mum’s side of the family. </li></ul><ul><li>So thank you again – and may God’s choicest rest blessings upon you and your dear ones on this blessed occasion! Happy birthday once again! </li></ul><ul><li>I hope you love the flowers too that I chose specially for you! You are a Queen! </li></ul><ul><li>From Maffy, Sylvester, Fabiola (in Australia) and Lincoln (in New Zealand) </li></ul>

I am sending you a photograph of years ago, with Mum, Avida, myself and our dog, Bruce Lee. Do you remember him? Thanks, Aunty Assumption for being a good friend to mummy.

Thank you for all your kindness to all of us, specially for your love, telephone calls and concern for Mum and Dad. Have a wonderful day and God bless. Love, kisses and a big hug and thank you.
