  1. cecil da costa, Margao - Goa india :

    I am sad to know the death of my cousin, who was also my godfather. It was sad to be informed very late by his Sister Florrie from England.

    I miss you very much, and the last time we met was when you were here in Goa in 1999 for my Wedding.

    I would be very grateful if i could have the emails of his sons Greg & Gerard so that i could wish them.
