Honorable Sebastian Anefal
Yap State
Federated States of Micronesia

Dear Governor Anefal,

On behalf of the people and Government of the
Republic of Palau, I hereby express and convey our
deep sympathies and condolences to you and the people
of Yap, and especially the family, relatives, and
friends of the late Luke Tman for his passing on July
15, 2009. Indeed, history will definitely set him
aside as one of the early and brilliant political
leaders in Micronesia.

On a personal note, I remember Luke during the l975
Micronesian Constitutional Convention in Saipan where
he served most ably as its Floor Leader. He was an
outstanding Parliamentarian, and I personally learned
a lot from him when I served as a delegate from Palau
to that Convention. I shall always remember him when
he skillfully played that role during that Convention.

May the Almighty God bless the family of Luke Tman
and the people of Yap as they mourn his death and
celebrate his life, and may He also grant Luke Tman
eternal peace.

Johnson Toribiong
