"Dear Mr Fernando
May we offer our heartiest congratulations and every best wish to you on your 90th birthday. Reaching such an age is just another great achievement in a truly wonderful life. We visited Sri Lanka in June 2007 with a tour organised by Mary Taylor of Auckland. What a wonderful country. We met yourself and Merrilll when we visited your factory ( and was also to be able to do some tea tasting). Merrill also arranged a dinner menu centered around different tea flavors when we stayed at the tea managers cottages. Thank you for all you have done"
