Uncle Sam 山姆叔叔

I attended the funeral Mass of Samson Sew (57) at the Church of Divine Mercy in Shah Alam at 11:00 am today.

I met Samson, a communion minister, last year going with him to give communion to a sick East Malaysian. He was healthy and jovial then.

Sadly, he died of cancer 3 days ago leaving behind his wife Anne and two sons, Michael and Kenneth, daughter in law and two grandchildren.

Fr. Paulino, the Parish Priest gave a moving homily paying tribute to Samson who served the parish with dedication and passion. He was fondly called by parishioners as Uncle Sam.

Michael, the eldest son, shared some touching moments of his life with his father. He also expressed his love for him and his admiration and respect for the good works his father, a perfectionist and passion worker, has done for the parish and the community especially the Chinese Speaking community.

"Sam Sew, we love you. We commend your spirit to God.... Jesus, Jesus, Jesus (sung)...."- Fr. Paulino.
