Some sadness


That's my Ah Mah, my maternal grandmother in the background. She only got to see Alex, her only great-grandchild twice.

Less than two weeks after we returned to Sydney, I heard from my parents that she was not doing so well. She passed away on 19th February, a day before her birthday when she would have turned 97.

I went back to KL again, this time for her funeral.


Whilst it was sad that she was gone, it is a relief to know that she is now in peace. The two nights of wake and the funeral were well attended. The wakes were held at my parents' house, where my grandmother lived and died. Every day and night, we had friends and relatives visiting. There was lots of food and conversation. That's how she would have liked it. She always liked a house full of people and lots of good food to go around!

Rest in peace, Ah Mah.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It's good to know she would have been happy with the wake, and that you and your parents had friends all around you.
Oh Celia! I'm so sorry for your loss. Will be thinking of you and your family. It sounds like she lived a very full life, and reached well past the magic age of 90, right? That gives her some sort of status, I hear.
Sorry to hear about your grandmother - she seems like an amazing lady. And Alex is getting so big!
She lived quite a long time and I hope that she had a wonderful life. I agree that to live past 90 is a great achievement in this lifetime. I am sure that she will watch over all your family and know that she was very well loved.
So sorry to hear your news.
How nice that your Ah Mah got to meet Alex a few times, unfortunate it was not more, but so lovely all the same. I have no grandparents and only my mum left, so feel sorry for Lucas missing out. I hope she is at peace, and know she will be looking down and watching over your lovely family x
Sorry to hear her passing. I am sure your grandma has lived her life and left a rich legacy and sweet memories behind.
My deepest condolences for your loss.

May her sould rest in peace.
My deepest condolences to you and your family. I loved your comment about how she would have love her own wake - with lots of friends and family gathered together. That's such a nice thing to say. Lots of hugs.
