Dear MACVA and RMAF veterans (specially to Lt Col Ooi Ah Ba and wife, Capt Tei Poey Eong, Lim Thian Huat, Ang Tat Leong, Ang Kee Lam, Lai Choo, Kok Ching Huat, Phoo Ah Fook, Cheah Chong Bon and Lee Hock San),

On behalf of our family, we would like to say a BIG thank you to the members of MACVA and RMAF veterans for attending my father’s wake and funeral service, showing kindness and generosity during the time of my father’s passing. We deeply appreciate all your kind support and help. Thank you for sending such a beautiful condolence letter and large flower arrangement.

My father was certainly proud of his work in RMAF so your presence and support have been very much appreciated. The dignity of the military sendoff ceremony was a most perfect recognition of my father’s service to our country. It gave each one of us a warm sense of pride, comfort and appreciation. Hearing the Last Post playing, witnessing the flag folding and serious attention of the MACVA personnel was awe-inspiring to us. What a wonderful and moving way to show our family the respect that was earned by my father. Serving in the RMAF for 22 years was a big part of our father’s life, therefore having his services recognized so beautifully was truly meaningful for all of us.

Words cannot adequately express the respect, the honor, kindness and dignity displayed by all of you. We were very grateful for your presence, support and the noble way you handled the ceremony. Please know that it has made a difference that each one of us will remember forever.

With great appreciation,
Wong Kar Foong, Wong Kar Keong,
