Hey buddy, was just thinking about you as I do from time to time. I'm not sure why I write, I'm not one for the afterlife, I guess I hope it matters to your family that they're not the only ones who remember you. Rest easy.

I was just thinking of our old friend Yew Loong and thought I'd drop a note on his memorial page, just to let his family know he's not forgotten, and he is still missed. We at Teck hope his family is well and living the life he dreamed for you.

I likely knew Yew-Loong the very least (considering all who've left messages here). Yew-Loong and I worked on three work related projects since the spring of 2011. We shared meals and stories about family and technology. What I remember most is the change in his demeanor when he spoke of his children. He spoke fondly and glowed with pride.

Yew Loong and I worked together for the last 3 years, we traveled together a number of times. Shared food, laughter and taste in cars, I enjoyed working with and spending time with Yew Loong, I am very sorry to hear that he is no longer with us. I will always remember his easy infectuous smile and his quite intencity. I offer my condolences and my friendship to his family, Bruce.
