The close ties of our family to Singapore is more evident than ever in 2015. This is a true occurrence despite the fact that all of us were born in Malaysia with the exception of the mother of the family, my departed wife who returned to her heavenly home in Nov 2012. All 4 of the boys have been entrenched with education and life on the island since they moved to live on the island state in the milestone year of 2007. One son will finish his 2 year National Service in the middle of the year while another is about to embark on his.
As I had commitments in Kuala Lumpur and Penang over in Malaysia, I left the island on Thursday 19 March 2015 knowing I would miss the following as I would only be back in April :
After the State Funeral Service, my father’s casket was taken to Mandai for a private cremation. After the public ceremonies, in his final hour my father was with his family, his lifelong friends, his immediate staff, and his security and medical teams. Here is what I said as his son. – LHL
