Manama, 12 April 2010: In memory of Late Mr.Wilfyrebimbus a condolence meeting was organized in Bahrain on the 10th of April 2010 at the Papillon Restaurant Auditorium. A solemn mass in Konkani was celebrated for his soul at the Sacred Heart Church, Manama, Bahrain at 7.30pm, there after everyone proceeded to the auditorium to pay their respect and show their love to our dear Wilfy Rebimbus.

The Condolence meeting was graced by Sacred Heart Church’s Asst. parish Priest Fr. Vincent, who started the proceedings with prayer and asked almighty to take Wilfy’s soul in his grace and look after him tenderly.

There were many speeches regarding the achievements and work of Konkani literature. The atmosphere was very touching as speakers after speakers honored him for the soul touching songs, everlasting and mesmerizing lyrics and the love he showered on our Konkan Karaval Region. He taught us how to live an honorable life, how to love, how to be a role model for others. By his work he gave Konkani a rich heritage, which will be cherished by us and the generations to come and will remain forever.

On behalf of all gathered the designated speakers were Mr. Joel D’sa, who started the condolence speech, followed by Edward Menezes, Ronald Mathais, Richard Moras & Jonson Barot, and later on from the crowd Mr Ronald Fernandes and Mr. Vincent spoke their feelings about Wilfyab. With Wifyab’s absence the entire Konkani community lost a father figure and a crusader who worked his entire life for Konkani, which he loved most.

This condolence meeting was arranged by Mr Simon & Prescilla Machado, who have a special place and feelings in their heart for Dear Wilfyab & Meenabai.

This meeting was managed and conducted in a professional manner by our own Mr.John D’souza. We pray to almighty to grant his soul eternal peace and give strength to Meenabai and all the family members to bear the pain of his loss and courage to move ahead in life.
