Tonight I thought of you.  It’s been a little over a year since you left us.  You are still in my thought and my prayer.  I still remember the day I saw you at the hospital.  That was one of the hardest day of my life.  Grandma still talk about you sometimes.  I don’t think she ever accepted the fact that you are no longer with us.  I can see a deep sadness in her eyes.  She is getting older and weaker.  I want to comfort her but I was not able to mutter any meaningful words to say to her.  Do you think you can pay her a visit and tell her that you are alright?

At cousin Asin’s wedding, everyone was heartbroken when cousin Atu sat next to aunt Jenny at the tea-serving ceremony.  It should have been you.  No one in the room didn’t think of you at that moment.  It was hard.  My mum was the first to cry.  I asked her why and she said you were at the tea-serving ceremony with her when Siao Mei got married a year earlier and only two of you made it to Jakarta for her wedding.

I came by to see you at the temple a couple of months ago on my way to my hometown.  You looked peaceful.  I miss you Uncle Welly.  I hope you are doing well up there.  I love you.
