JBD, no more by my side

JB (Bain) D'Souza, my father. June 3 1921 to September 2 2007.

Thank you Uma and Peter.

I will soon put up here some words about him from a few people who knew him.

I did not know about him until I read Uma's post. From what little I could gather by google, he seemed to be a remarkable man. My heartfelt condolences.

Vibha & Dilip - my condolences.

You lose a Dad, and then you realise you could have learnt and heard so much more from him. But I think you learnt a lot from him.

I hope your children will, too.
