Grieving with hope.

Spending 10 minutes to blog. =)

Today, I've received a heart-wrenching news- Uncle Joseph Lim (Calvin's and Collin's dad) passed away. Aunty Wendy and Hon Wei forwarded the message to pray for him when we received the news that he fell from the roof right to the drain. Apparently, he was fixing the leakage on his roof.

Tears rolled down my cheeks as soon as I received the news that he passed away not too long after I received the message to pray for him. It's like I almost couldn't believe it as it happened way too fast to actually think again that he's no longer here. I just saw him on Sunday, which was 3 days ago.

I can't believe it.

I still can't!

But I want to thank God for this gift- Uncle Joseph Lim. He has always been one of the nice guys in church who will randomly go up front to sing a song for his wife while strumming a guitar or even for guest speakers like Pastor Ann. I think many will remember him for his gentle and kind soul within him. Even right now, I have no idea why but a peace within my heart assuring me that he is happy in heaven. I know God orders Uncle Jo's steps. Every step of the way. May the God of all comfort comfort his family at this moment of time. My deepest and heartfelt condolence to Aunty Stephanie, my youth friends- Calvin and Collin and their sister.

Uncle Jo's legacy as High Praise King of Rock and Roll (a.k.a. Elvis Presley) will continue to live in our hearts.

Life is way too fragile. Treasure every moment you have with your loved ones- people who are precious to you... before it's too late!
