We express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for your sympathy and kindness during our time of loss.
It is of great comfort to know that your thoughts are with us during this most trying period and that Tundun found a home away from home at Knox College.

Your kind words will help sustain us during these trying times, as will the knowledge that Tundun touched so many lives.
Thank you again for your love, prayers, concern, support and thoughtfulness.
We pray that the Good Lord will comfort you all and satisfy you with long life.
