Mother’s Day Eulogy

My beloved mother passed away on 5/5/08 at 9:30 am. I was home in Penang attending her funeral.

This morning, my family and I spent Mother’s Day picking up her cremated remains…it’s the 7th day since her demise (头七).

To my dearest mother—I wanted to let you know that everyone in the family loves you very very much and that we will always miss you sorely.

    It’s very tough and it will take time to heal, but I have learned to accept it and am coping alright.

    I am sorry about you loss. But looking at how you have turned out I believe your mom must have had a long, fruitful and fulfilling life. Fear not death as it is just another journey beyond. Thus you yourself must continue in your own life’s journey.

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My own mother died in 1998 and I understand completely how nothing can prepare you for this experience. It will get easier with time, but nothing can replace a mother in your life. Best thoughts to you at this difficult time.

    As fellow Penangite, and knowing how far away you are from home ( like me ), this loss takes even a harder toll on you. So sorry about the passing of your mum.

    All – again, thanks for your comments, sweet notes and emails.

    I thought Rasa Malaysia is just a place I share my passion in food and cooking, I didn’t expect to have found so many friends.

    Thank you! You are a star! :)

    My Belated Condolences to you and family. I understood your situation. I lost my pillar of strength, my mom 11 months after my dad. 8 months later my eldest sister… :’-( I still missed mom & dad and sis but I know they don’t want me feel that way so, it’s now our turn to continue their legacies… :-)

    Let their memories be our guiding forces in our journey. Smile always, ok? Cheers!
