Dear Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong,
My humble condolences to you and your family for your personal loss.
Undoubtedly, Mr Lee Kuan Yew was a faithful husband to his wife and a devoted father to his children. By any measure, that alone would have been enough for any man to be well-respected and highly regarded for.
Yet, he is also the first of the founding fathers of our outstanding nation! As you have well said, " We won’t see another man like him".
As so, the passing of Mr Lee Kuan Yew is also a personal loss to Singaporeans like me, beneficiaries of the personal sacrifices made by - and audacious vision of - our founding fathers.
I salute Mr Lee Kuan Yew and join my fellow Singaporeans to mourn his passing.
- An ordinary but proud-to-be-called Singapore citizen.
