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.
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。
