Eulogy

Thank you all for being with us during this difficult time. Over the last few days, we are amazed to see so many people come to pay their last respects, from a side of him that we rarely hear or see. He had so many friends that we ran out of peanuts on our first day.

My dad also liked peanuts. A lot.

感谢大家和我们度过这艰难的时刻。这几天,我们遇到了我爸爸这么多朋友,不只是感到很感动,也感到有点惊讶。丧事的第一天,没有想到会有这么多人,还没到晚上,花生都吃完了。

我爸爸很喜欢吃花生。

We are proud of him for having lived his life so well, as a father, as a lover, as a brother, friend, colleague and mentor.

我们为我们爸爸很骄傲。他真的是活了70年的好命,一生做了一个好爸爸,好爱人,好兄弟,好朋友,好同事,好导师。

He was surrounded by love through his last days, and indeed, all his life. And we are assured through all of his friends, all of his family, all of you, that he remains alive in our hearts for a good long time to come.

他度过的最后几天,他的一生,都充满爱。我爸爸在我们脑海里的存在,心中的怀念,我们也有了他多数亲戚朋友的肯定。

A few years ago, I wrote a story about a Lao Hee Low that has helped me well through many hard times, and has also helped me through this one. For those of us grieving his passing, I want to share that lesson I learned from watching my dad live.

几年前,我写了一个老英雄的故事。这故事帮了我读过很多艰苦的时刻,也帮了我度过这个时刻。我要和当中为我爸爸悲悼的人,分享看我爸爸过生活所学到的一样东西。

Strength is measured in many forms, not least in physical attributes, and more intangibly, character. But while strength can be taken from the body in many ways, it is not easily diminished in a person’s character, so long as he has held on to that strength his entire life.

力量有很多方法测量,不只是用体状,更重要的是用心态。身体的力量虽然会很容易遗失,不过强壮的心态只要有一生的培养,那种力量是永恒的。
