My mom has passed on peacefully at Changi Hospital Isolation Ward 2 at 2:14 pm Singapore time just now. It’s a blessing that all of us were with her when she took her last breath. I’ve been in Singapore for a couple of days now and there’s a lot of procedures involving embalming and death certificates and what not over here.
I just came back from the hospital, she has been struggling a lot with the pain last night and it was heartbreaking to see the blight that end stage cancer brings.
My mom has been real strong though, she has been fighting lung cancer since 2010 when she went for the initial operation in Auckland.
We will all be flying back to Sibu with my mom’s body on Saturday night – if anyone wants to pay their last respects, the coffin will be at our home in Sibu for at least one (1) day before funeral proceedings on Monday.
The Christian service will be tomorrow morning at Singapore.
Thank you all for your well wishes and condolences.
You’ll be sorely missed by all of us, mom. I know you’re in a better place now.
