In Loving Memory of Uncle Peter Choy

I thank God & Uncle Peter that through his life & even in his death, I have been tremendously blessed.

I am grateful to have attended the wake services these past 3 days. I could only imagine how it feels to lose a father, & I was ready to mourn with them. Sure there was mourning, but there were much peace, love, joy, & comfort also. I'm amazed that in spite of their sorrow & pain, the Choy siblings were able to give joy by choosing to encourage & appreciate others instead. It's a great reflection & representation of the love of Jesus.

Jesus, after the Last Supper, spent much time & words to comfort the disciples. They were sad for Jesus was leaving them. And the one who was going to endure the most pain & suffering - was Jesus. Yet, in spite of that, He chose to encourage & comfort the very people who were going to abandon Him. Even on the cross, where physical suffering was at its peak, Jesus managed to attend to his mother's needs by asking John to take care of her.

The Choy siblings - Simon, Carina, Norman - reminded me of these acts of Jesus. My soul has been powerfully impacted. And for that I am forever grateful.
