Another Absent Friend

The world has become quieter
The loss of a unique voice and laughter
The lives she had touched and saved
The cries of the many babies she had delivered
Deeply missed by all her loved ones.
(climbing the Great Wall of China, 2001)

Dr Tan Qui Hong was a consultant Obstetrician & Gynecologist who had a flourishing practice at Jalan Tebrau, Johor Bahru, Malaysia and has admission rights to Puteri Specialist Hospital. Yet, in spite of her success, she remains humble and lived a simple lifestyle. She did not put on airs. She has a pleasant smile and always enjoyed the simple pleasures of life. In her practice, I believed she has touched many lives. I am privileged that she counted me as her friend and I shall miss her.

Something wells up in me as I read your words Alex.. I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. She seemed like such a beautiful person.

Losing my wife was so hard. Please give her husband my contact info if you think I can help in any way.

Here is something a friend shared with me when my wife passwed away:

Heaven is now a bit more glorious!

I think that a bit more glory was added when your friend went to be with Jesus.

Many blessings, Bob

hi kansas bob,

Thanks Bob. She was a great lady. In the last few months of her cancer, she tried to live as normal a life as she can and many people did not even suspect she was dying. She taught me the meaning of gratitude as she enjoyed each day of her life.

My only regret was that I did not share the gospel with her.
