It is with deepest regret and sorrow that we at MEF have to announce the passing of Sumana. She died peacefully yesterday evening Friday 28th October 2011.
After a long battle with various health problems, Sumana was just too tired to carry on. She has remained patient and always shown amazing bravery and grace throughout her treatment. A truly inspiring elephant, she charmed everyone she met, she was well loved and will be deeply missed by us all here.
A small service attended by a priest will be taking place at 10:30am today and she will be buried onsite here at MEF, her final home where we hope she was as happy as she made us.
Please let us all remember the good times with Sumana, we would be grateful if you could share with us your memories and favourite photos of this remarkable lady who is now free from pain and at peace. Sleep well Sumana.
