Tribute to a friend

My friend JH Hong, suffered a stroke on the 6th of October 2010, and after a month in coma, he passed away on 14 November 2010, May God rest his soul, rest well my friend.

I am really bad at saying goodbyes, so I don't really know what to say. I have known Hong since I worked at Delta Prisma circa 2000.

He is quite an artist as you can see here.

And he can do the Chinese sear very well.
This is taken from his blog, I am sure he will approve.

I wanted the picture to be a promise to my wife, that "this is us; this is how we will still love each other, 50 years from now".

Growing old with you
though there be wind and rain along the way
we shall weather them all with a laugh

Walking with the Lord
though there be changes in life great and many
we shall find peace in God's wondrous grace

I end this blog with the 23rd Psalm

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.
