I first met Lal around 25 years ago, not long after he married Jay's sister. He was the 'life-of-the-party' type of guy. He was generous and enjoyed making a big deal whenever we were in Sri Lanka. He was about my age. His health had been poor recently but his demise was, of course, much too early. On the island, I will miss my happy, loyal, drinking buddy.
