Sad loss 痛失


I received the sad news yesterday morning.

Michael Tan (53), photographer of Herald, the Catholic weekly, passed away suddenly of a heart attack. He left behind his beloved wife Helen. They have no children.

Michael was a friendly, helpful, kind and well-loved person. We met often at church functions. His death was a sad loss to the community and the church.

Funeral Mass will be held at the St. Ignatius Church tomorrow (Thursday) at 10:00 am. May his soul rest in peace.

我在昨天早上接到了这噩耗。

Michael Tan, 天主教【前锋报】的摄影记者,昨天心脏病突发,与世长辞,享年53岁。他留下遗孀Helen。 他们没有孩子。

Michael 是一位友善 、乐于助人 、善良及得人爱戴的教友,我和他常在一些教会集会碰面。他的逝世,确是本地团体及教会的一个损失。

安所弥撒将在明天星期四,早上十时正,在八打灵圣依纳爵堂举行。愿他的灵魂,在主内得享安息。

Anyway, may his soul rest in peace!

It was an unintentional mistake. Michael knows your concern and sadness for him. He is assured of your prayer always.
