Kuching, Encore

Update 9/5/2009 (10.04pm): The funeral for my beloved daddy today went smoothly, and everything has been taken care of. It was a wondrous joy seeing the whole big family both from my father's and mother's sides coming together in this period of grievance. Thanks for those who have come to the funeral ceremony, all the phone calls and texts that I have received, and of course, to those who have even commented here in this blog entry, again, thanks guys. I truly appreciate it.
I shall be blogging in more details on what actually happened, but this shall wait till the mourning period (which I am setting for myself) passes. Do stay with me, and I am grateful for all your well wishes, kind words and generous support.

Update 8/5/2009 (6.15pm): My dad passed away at 12.15pm, 8/5/2009. I am sure the Lord is with him now, and I pray that he is in a better place. The funeral will be on the following day, 9/5/2009 at 2pm. I am still a little shaken at the moment. My family and I are in need of your prayers.

I will be taking the next flight home to Kuching. I am not kidding.

I have just got a call from mum this morning, dad could not wake up. He has been admitted to the emergency room and there is still no word from the doctor at the moment.

Gosh, I was only home a week ago and everything seemed just fine. I have not the details yet, which I tried not to ask too much from the phone since I need to gather every ounce of strength I can to move.

Please have my dad and me in your prayers. He is a good man, and very well loved by many. And I will need all the support I can from you beautiful guys.

I will update you guys on the progress if I can. For now, just hope for the best, and I have a plane to catch.

Lord, be merciful.
