Today we bid farewell to a fellow Subang Jaya resident - the late Robert Lam. My deepest condolences to his wife, children and family members. I am thankful for the opportunity to visit him twice in the hospital. My two favourite sms-es from him will not be erased from my phone because they remind me of his confidence and positive outlook on life despite being stricken with cancer and I want to share that with you:
"Thks hannah 4 the uplifting exhortation. Yes, i know He is my refuge n strength. Robert"
"Great to hear frm u Hannah! I'm getting stronger altho feeling vomitish. Doc says my test readings show my biological age is 55 instead of my actual 63 yrs! PTL! Robert"
I used to attend English lessons at his English Language Centre in SS15 when I was a young girl. Many of us grew up watching him on TV. I am just really grateful for the privilege of hearing him read news and for the honor of meeting him personally in the last few months of his life.
We will miss your golden voice, Robert and I know you are now safe at home with the Lord.
