My tears welled up as I received the sad news. Mr Lee Kuan Yew has completed his life’s journey.
But it was a journey devoted to the making of Singapore. He has bequeathed a monumental legacy to Singaporeans – a safe, secure, harmonious and prosperous independent Singapore, our Homeland.
He was a selfless leader. He shared his experience, knowledge, ideas and life with us. He was my leader, mentor, inspiration, the man I looked up to most. He made me a proud Singaporean. Now he is gone. I mourn but he lives on in my heart.
On behalf of Marine Parade residents, I offer our profound condolences to PM Lee Hsien Loong and his family.
