To my late uncle,
You are the only one I can rely on to drop and pick up my 3rd boy Ian to Kennedy PS in Scarborough, his JK year during my busy bread winning year of the early 90s at your first arrival year to start your retirement years in Canada
That was a blessing from ABOVE.
You were surprised by a 4 year old boy Ian’s ability to give you clear direction of how to drive through the suburb streets to the school. Eh, you were new in driving around in Scarborough plus a young kid who never drive but has good sense of direction. That’s a team work. Thank you for letting my boy to be your guide while you served him as a GRAND UNCLE (Dai Sook Gong) driver.
A sweet memo on your memorial day. Cheer from above.
My deepest sympathy to you, Mary, for the loss of your beloved Dad. May Mr. Mui rest in the peace of God. My heart and prayers are with you and your family.
My sincere condolences and prayers and may God grant eternal rest to uncle Mui 🙏🙏🙏
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to attend online the beautiful funeral service for Mr. Mui. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your dear mother.
With sincere condolences,
