We can say lots of cliches like "He has been released from his sufferings" and "Time heals everything". But as of now I don't think any of those words would be of help.

Just stay strong, keep you chin up and I am sure your friends will be there if you need anything.

Unregistered

Thank God for the fact that you were able to be by his side throughout the journey with him.

Im sad to hear the news...but life must go on, stay tough and take good care of your mom...all the best to you kenny...

Unregistered

Dear Kenny,
I am so sorry. I have been reading your blogs for quite a while, and although you make everybody laugh with your entries, one thing I do know is that your love for your father is very very genuine and clearly... this comes as a big blow to you. I can only pray that you are strong enough to overcome this extremely trying period... and take comfort that you made the decision to come home and spend the past few months with him. He must have been proud to have you as a son.

I am not sure if you realise it, but you have somehow managed to reach the hearts of your fellow "blogders" (ok, I got it from xiaxue)... they laugh with you and they cry with you. Even as I am typing this now, I am trying hard to fight back my tears. You have truly touched the hearts of many. Especially your posts on your father. He will remain in your heart (and most of us out there) for eternity.

Take care of your mother, let her know you will always be there for her. She needs you now.

Take care and good luck.

NAM-MO O-NI-TOL-FOR

I know it is disheartening for you and your family even though you know this moment would come. In the end, everything worked out for the best, he is now at a better place where there is no suffering, a suffering he had endured as his health declined in the past months.

As you flashed back in your previous blog, I notice that you very much appreciated and learnt from your father the value of hard work and ambition, and how much he meant to you, and that is comforting to your dad and is more than what a parent can ask for. I hope it is just as comforting for you to know that.

NAM-MO O-NI-TOL-FOR

Unregistered

Hey Kenny,

My deepest condolences to you and Jeffrey. Sorry for your loss. Hang in there buddy.

Niki

Unregistered

my condolences dude. cheer up soon .

Unregistered

he had found peace in his passing. now, you must find yours by living.

Unregistered

Hey dude, my sincere condolences.

The next few days will be hectic and stressful since this is probably your first time to deal with such situation. Being educated abroad you may find some of the traditional activities a little difficult to accept, be patient, take a long walk.... think about something to blog,your dad will be glad in another world to know you turn a sad departure into a celebration to enter eternity.

I am sure the humorous nature in you will soon let the sad feelings go and keep the happy moments of being with your dad in your memory.

Looking forward to your humorous post again.

Unregistered

No words can really describe how it feels to lose a member of your family, especially if its one of your parents.

Unregistered

I am so sorry for your loss, I'm in tears now as I had just visited our former President's Wee Khim Wee tribute just now, and now to read about your dad's passing.

Be strong, wish I could pay my respect to your dad too.

Unregistered

The past 12 hours has been a long and difficult one. I'm overwhelmed with emotions, mostly sadness and anger. I'm still trying to swallow in the fact that I lost my father, that he will no longer be with me to continue on with my journey of life. This reality is hard to accept. I'm still struggling.

I've read every single comment here, and I thank each and everyone of you for leaving kind comments and words of encouragement. Its especially heartwarming to hear from strangers and friends alike, from places as close to Kuching and as far as US, UK, Australia. I'm touched that some of you even dedicated entries on your blog for me. Somehow it makes going through the past 12 hours a little bit easier.

*** To my Kuching readers - I understand that my privacy may be compromised following my father's passing. I ask that you respect my privacy. Please do not disclose any unnecessary information about my family or my job on this site. And please do not disclose the existence of this blog to anyone else in Kuching. As odd as it sounds, I rather as little people in Kuching know about my blog as possible, only because I know how hurtful gossips may be. I enjoy writing, I'm sure many enjoy reading. Please do not be a bad sport and spoil it for us.

Once again I thank you for giving me strength to get through this very difficult time.

Unregistered

My deepest condolences to your loss, Kenny - my prayers and thoughts are with you and your family now. Be strong - you've done all a filial son could do.

Unregistered

My deepest condolonces to you.
Stay strong, Kenny. Stay strong.

Remember your dad is at a place better then this earth..

js want to share that i lost my father fours years ago on 30/4/05 to cancer too. it's hard n i still cried my hearts out whenever the memories came.

reading yr experience made me realised that somewhere out there there are people who are just as unfortunate as me but still going on strong and carried on life to the fullest.
