Hi Mom .. a little prose to close

Off she goes to her heavenly abode
Our dearest mother, familiar smile shining along that road

Heart still ablaze with tender love
For all those she came upon, whilst lent from above

Our collective memories will never fail
To honor our Angel with love filled pail

We miss you now even more
Knowing we’ll meet eventually on that Golden Shore

My dearest cousins,

The very sad loss of your beloved mother is shattering and very painful.

She was a constant in my life since birth and was part of that generation of our family who kept us all together and taught us so much. She worked hard for her family and made sacrifices so that her children could have the best. She loved unconditionally and was kind, caring, generous, welcoming and hospitable.

My darling Auntie May, I will miss your sweet smiles, your jokes, your easy-going nature. I bid you a very fond ‘goodbye’ but your loving spirit will live on in my heart forever.

My sincere condolences to everyone. I shall be there with you in spirit tomorrow at the service.

May God watch over you, keep you safe and bless you and your families.

Love you,

Lloyd Chin
