farewell dear friend,

it was only a few months ago since i last saw you.

we grew up together in happy gardens, played football in the evenings. u always had that cheerful smile wherever you went. i was more mystified how a chinaman like you could sport an afro!

you leave us with lasting memories of your gentle nature, a doting parent, and a loving husband - and always with a bike.

you will be dearly missed, boon chay.

may u and corrine find eternal peace and happiness.
