    How does the rich and powerful die? In the same way as the pauper and the downtrodden.

    Our deepest condolences to MM Lee, PM Lee, their family and friends. “Grief is the price we pay for love”.

    Not necessarily. The powerful are remembered by many. The rest are (usually) just another face in the crowd. Remembered by few.

    So dawn goes to day, nothing precious can stay.
    Dear Mrs Lee,
    Thank you, for everything you have done, for the country, for your family and Mr Lee Kuan Yew. Never did I get to know you, yet you will have all my respect as a great, smart woman.

    To the Lee family,
    This too, shall pass. Let the happy memories be always deep in you.

    Alright good-bye. When is Old Man’s turn?
    We surely deserve a few days holiday for that

  19. Now, it is time for YOU MM Lee to get what you tell your judges to tell those they sentence to barbaric FLOGGINGS-“your just desserts.”

    Our deepest condolence to MM Lee and family
    We are really proud to have Mrs Lee to be the mother of Singapore. She is a great lady behind a great man. SHe just supported silently and she is a real success as a woman. SHe is actually the inner strength of MM Lee. Imagine MM Lee looking at the mirror but at the other side of the mirror is Mrs Lee. This is the intimacy of their love. They have kept their marriage vows and I was so touched when I read the article that MM Lee reads her favourite poem every night . I thought it will only happen in fairy tales but it happens in the life of Mr & Mrs Lee. Please take care of yourself, MM Lee

    Dear MM Lee,

    I share with you your sorrow this moment. No human words of condolences can ever be enough to replace your loss. I can only share with you this poem, which has brought the deepest consolation to millions of people in their brokeness:

    Psalm 23
    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

    Dear MM Lee,

    As parting is unfortunately part and parcel of life that none can avoid, I pray that God will provide you the strength to walk through this difficult period of your life knowing that He is our fortress and strength.

    My deepest condolences to you and your family. Thank you for your contribution to shape this country and to your gracious wife who had quietly walked with you and supported you in your vision.

    1 dead and a few more to go.

    ah kwa maybe the dragon lady behind the throne,but we all know that all dynasties fall and fade into history.

    lky,we all know you are next.either you repent for all the pain and sufferings you have done or you die a miserable old man with only those who are foolish enough to mourn you.

    as for the rest of us who see you truly for who you are,we are just enticipating a public holiday that is to come(you cannot blame us you know,we are who we are today bocoz of you,so humor us,let us enjoy a week’s memorial holiday when u choose to join ah kwa).

    NO sympathies for you or your cancer ass son.coz you are a vile,vindictive scum who deserve nothing more than the same you have bestowed your victims.

    so screw you and your whole family and thanks for all the untold sufferings you and your whole family have brought to the generations following your accension to the dragon throne.

    It is the basic manners in a person of what to say and what to do on a particular event and occasion. Obviously, some people are simply pathetic souls lacking of this basic mannerism in them, giving very inappropraite comments. Brainless, ignorant.

    Please respect Mrs Lee , and keep all that negative and foolish thoughts in you.

  30. please take care!
