Memorial Tributes
This tribute was added by Abang Simeon on 11th July 2017

"You planted the seed,
It was just a very tiny seed,
From blessed hands and with a loving heart.
The seed was sown on good soil.
Seven years have passed and the seed has gained roots.
It is growing and spreading.
Turn and look: it has got many branches,
Birds are nesting in its branches and eating its fruit.
Be happy where you are! You did not labor in vain."

"A special smile
A special face
In our hearts
A special place
A special voice
A special way
In our lives
A special touch
Memories are a gift to treasure
Ours of you will last forever.

Dearest Uncle Pastor
Six years today seems like yesterday.  Feels like you're only a phone call away.  I know you're watching over us and asking God to touch us
in our own special way.  You're loved and missed very much.  Till we meet again, Uncle, I lay a flower for you"

"God will link the broken chain,
As one by one we meet again.
In our hearts you will always stay,
Loved and remembered every day.

Tenderly we treasure the past,
With memories that will always last.
Time may pass and fade away,
But memories of you will always stay.

Uncle Pastor.  
5 years today have gone by since you passed away.
The way I miss you is different now.  I still hear your calm but reassuring voice ushering me through life's ups and downs and
I know that you're around.  Until God links the broken chain,
In memory's garden we meet everyday."
