We the Wijeyesekera family whilst missing our beloved son has become aware of the plight of parents with differently able children who are constantly worried by the uncertainty of the fate of their children once they predecease them. So as to make this burden to be minimal, especially the financially disadvantaged ones. As the foundation, which is a mere 2 years in existence, grows in strength and we succeed in informing the general public of the parents’ plight, we hope that we will be able to even minutely assist these unfortunate folks.
The second part of our vision is to educate the general public that these children are classified as special and the pathetic addressing them as Mongols, idiots etc must cease forthwith and be accepted into society as acceptable citizens.
Your cooperation in enabling us to achieve our noble goals is hereby solicited without condition and we thank you, most profusely in this regard.
HEAVEN'S VERY SPECIAL CHILD
Remembering Romesh Wijeyesekera
Born: 24th May 1974 Recalled from this life; 30th Jan. 2017
A meeting was held quite far from Earth! It’s time again for another birth. Said the Angels to the LORD above, This Special Child will need much love. His progress may be very slow, Accomplishments he may not show. And he’ll require extra care From the folks he meets down there. He may not run or laugh or play, His thoughts may seem quite far away, In many ways he won’t adapt, And he’ll be known as handicapped. So let’s be careful where he’s sent, We want his life to be content. Please LORD, find the parents who Will do a special job for you. They will not realize right away The leading role they’re asked to play, But with this child sent from above Comes stronger faith and richer love. And soon they’ll know the privilege given In caring for their gift from Heaven. Their precious charge, so meek and mild, Is HEAVEN’S VERY SPECIAL CHILD.
ROMESH was always full of smiles and made all those who met him that he was happy in his own world. Please remember him like this – and smile when you recall how he greeted you. That will be a real expression of your love for the 3 of us.
