Uncle was called to the Lord on 15 January 2015 5.20 pm
We attended the Vigil Prayers which was in ChineseMet James who came all the way from KL to be with his cousin John, He went straight to the parlour and spent time with John the whole night, as he had to leave after vigil prayers since he had to man the education fair booth the next day and also had to drive back to Singapore that weekend to be with his own family. We posed outside the beautiful church
And also inside the church annex,
tomorrow the service would be held in the church proper

with Joanne and Jeff, Jess had run off as she does not want any photos!
the night vigil in session,
I have not heard the "Hail Mary" and the "Our Father" chanted in Mandarin for a very long time!
after the prayers I sprinkled holy water
it has been some time that I have attended any mass
giving the pak kam on behalf of my bro and sisters who could not come
