Muscat, 30 April 2010: It was an emotional send off to one of the founder members of Bellevision in Muscat-Mr. John Lobo, affectionately known as Jillu to his family and friends. After putting in 17 years of service in one of the reputed companies in Muscat, John decided to call it a day for the sake of further education of his two daughters. A formal farewell to the family of John Lobo was given on 9th April 2010 on the occasion of the get together that the Bellevision, Muscat had arranged when Dr. Eugene D’Souza had visited Muscat. John’s family, wife and two daughters have already left Muscat to Mangalore on 17th April 2010.

It was a brief emotional send off to ‘Jillu bab’ who has been not only the founder member but also one of the active members of Bellevision, Muscat.

The farewell was organised in a unique manner. John Lobo was asked to wear a white T-shirt on which all those who were present had to write a message and sign. The word ‘Farewell’ was written in front of the T-shirt. Mr. Simon D’Souza, the present President of Bellevision, Muscat initiated the signing spree which was followed by other members present for the farewell.

Mr. Lawrence Alva, the Chairman of the Bellevision, Muscat, appreciated the selfless service rendered by Mr. John Lobo to Bellevision, Muscat during the past years and said that John Lobo was like a pillar since the foundation Bellevision, Muscat in 2003.

Meeting and parting is one of the necessary things in our life. We have to bid adieu to our loved ones at some point of time or the other, only with the hope that we will meet them again. Whenever we part with someone, who is very close to our hearts, the farewell is not easy. But the good thing is we all are united and are in constant touch through BELLEVISION wherever we are. All the very best to my dear neighbor Mr. John Lobo and family in all your future plans. Thanks to Mr. Simon D Souza and Ms. Glenda Castelino for the pictures and report, along with the office bearers and members of Bellevision Muscat please continue the great work and the activities as before.
