Tomorrow, Mum, Jeen and I are going to Penang to attend the Memorial Service specially organised by Sister Julia, Pastor Clement and Vern’s Penang ACE Homeschool. The main purpose of the service would be for the kiddos to give us an insight of Vern’s time at school and the things he spoke about regarding his family, and to show us around and how Vern spent the last 8 months of his life.
I forsee a very sad union tomorrow but we are all excited to know more about Vern – in my lack of vocabulary and sense of description, its like the feeling of doomed excitement. You know he is never coming back and by going to his school would be like rubbing salt into our wounds. But yet, how amazing it is to have the support of his Penang mates and school principal – it’s somehow comforting how we can share our grief.
