A great dame passes...
Today, the wife of Singapore's First Prime Minister, Mrs Lee Kuan Yew passed away at age 89. There goes a great woman, a devoted wife and mother. She has 61 years of love from a man who does not appear to be sentimental or romantic but spent the last 2 years reading poems and stories to his wife who could not speak after a series of strokes. She found love that spans 61 years through sickness and health. What a lucky woman. I wish the same for myself and my daughters. :)
'To love, to hold and to cherish, in sickness and in health, for better or for worse, till death do us part. 执子之手与子偕老。有情如此，夫复何求。 Rest in peace, Mrs Lee Kuan Yew (Mdm Kwa Geok Choo).
