The Eulogy

SAD NEWS....

I was in Johor when I received news that my uncle has passed on.... It was a Monday when my cousin messaged to inform us... My flight to Ipoh was due on Wednesday, just a few days ago.  I was very saddened by his demise, this uncle is close to my family.  I have mixed thoughts, am I saddened or do I feel a kind of relieved for him?  I am sure the family felt the same way as I do.... Saddened by his loss and at the same time, we feel comforted that he is now with our Good Lord, no more suffering, no more pain as he had been for more than six months.

My uncle was a very jovial guy, he loved to joke whether we are adults or kids and many times we were taken with his "acting"... The most recent one was a couple of months ago.... My sister and I visited him one afternoon and we were having a conversation with my auntie as well.  In the midst of our conversation, my sister gave some USD notes to my auntie.  My uncle who was sitting nearby then asked to see one of the notes, saying he never seen USD note before.  My auntie passed one piece of $100 to him unknowingly and that was the end of that.  Eventually, $100 note was "conveniently" kept in my uncle's pocket after that... At that moment, we laughed over his "trickery" done upon his wife....

My uncle loved his wife very dearly, very unselfishly in his own way.  The first time I took my auntie to US for three months, he told us to enjoy ourselves, if three months is not enough, stay six months.  That was what he said, he could take care of himself and his grandkids who were staying together with him.  And then the second time we went to US, he still encouraged my auntie to go for the trip, that was in May last year, he knew my auntie loves to travel and he gave his blessings.  However we cut short our two months stay, we flew back to Malaysia after one month for he fell down one day and could not walk properly.  Ever since then, his health failed and he was taken good care by my auntie till our Lord took him home last Monday...

During the eulogy, I wanted to go out but I did not have that moment.  I was moved to tears by the grandchildren's love for their grandfather and during the eulogy, they cried, they thanked him, they apologize, their regrets.... all for the love for their grandfather. They are all schooling kids and their grandfather has an impact on their lives...They really miss him very much!

We adults have learn something from these kids on that night...

Below is an eulogy by Christopher Au...

My father has lead a simple life , where usually after work, or even after he
retired, he will enjoy a good meal cooked by my mother and catch up on the
Hong Kong dramas. TV was his favourite pastime and he always enjoyed a good
laugh from comedies. He especially love anything related to China , be it politics ,
documentaries and any variety programs from China.
He loves kids and the kids love him. I remember when my daughter was a baby
and came back for cny, she refuse anyone to carry her except him. That shows
that my dad is like a magnet to the kids. I remember during his younger days, he
always likes to play with the kids in our neighbourhood and even watch cartoons
on TV and had a good laugh. His grandsons and granddaughters always love to
cling to him and very close to him.
My dad was also very playful and he likes to show his fun side by playing tricks on
us or friends. Sometimes you may kena his tricks without knowing it till my mum
tell them they got cheated. He's one fun loving man who likes to jokes and he's
also loves to talk.
He's always helpful to relatives and friends and whenever there are occasions,
whether good or bad, they always come to him. And , he will go all out to help
them.
He's a loving and fun dad and seldom scold us but he also ensure that we do not
go on the wrong path. He is very contented as long all of us try our best in our
studies and whatever we do. He also taught us a lot of good values which are
beneficial in our adult life.
We will always cherish him in our memories. 
Thank you.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, 
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
 John 3:16
RIP, Uncle
