  1. To Sheila and the family.
    I am very saddened to hear of the passing of uncle Barry. I had some very enjoyable times working with Uncle Barry, my late uncle Vajira and his son Varuna in Melbourne. Due to his interest in the intricacies of of PC operating systems he was referred to affectionately as De DOS !
    His jovial personality and interesting conversations will be fondly remembered. May he rest in peace.
