elevated bRnXq Obituary
elevated bRnXq My honey, Irene Hoi-Nin Yu, was born on January 2, 1945. It is with great sadness and disappointment that I have to announce her passing at Yee Hong Peter K Kwok Hospice, on September 9, 2021.
elevated bRnXq Irene graduated from Mary Knoll High School, and from Hong Kong University with a BA degree in 1967. Then she immigrated to Toronto in 1968. After we met each other and went frequently on dates, we got married on January 6, 1970. What great fortune for me! She had lots of interest in travelling, especially to Europe, so we cruised many times with our friends (e.g., Baltic Sea, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Yangtze River). We also did land tours throughout Eastern, Western, and Southern Europe.
elevated bRnXq Now that you have left us, I have this to say to you:
elevated bRnXq “Having a perfect wife is three generations’ kismet
elevated bRnXq Raising two successful children by far your merit
elevated bRnXq Heartfelt satisfaction by better half’s side
elevated bRnXq Love stronger than gold never wavers like tide
elevated bRnXq When my time comes I will be again by your side
elevated bRnXq As time goes on my love for you will never subside
elevated bRnXq So honey, wish you go comfortably and rest in peace
elevated bRnXq Just don’t forget my honey kiss.”
