We stood, as a family, in our HDB home, as the SCDF sirens went off to mark the moment of silence. And as a family, we silently bid him goodbye.
After singing the national anthem and saying the pledge as a family, we watched to the end of The Funeral and felt the sadness in our hearts.
Then the wife and I got up, cleaned the flat, washed the dishes, and hung up our wet laundry. And set the children some homework.
We could almost hear LKY's voice saying, "Enough with the tears, now get back to work. There's a lot to be done."
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep
