The family wishes to sincerely thank the staff of Chalmers Resthome who cared for Kumudam with such dedication over the past five years. To respect the wishes of Kumudam and Bhaskaran, a private cremation was held at New Plymouth crematorium on 9th August. Sadly missed, a special woman who remains forever in our hearts.
