My condolences to PM Lee Hsien Loong


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.
