最近聽到Wing. 的離去, 很是失落。實在不能想像他家人的感受。 我在十幾年前在大學時由同學介紹認識這位良師益友的。有幸在Rite Aid 與他共事三年。Wing為人有正義感, 又很幽默, 亦很顧家。當時我剛剛入行, 他敎䁱了我很多。在我犯錯時沒有半點責怪, 只有鼓勵。縱使返工很忙,但我很享受與他共事,談笑風生。畢業後偶有與他電聯, 可惜近年家庭太忙, 無時間保持聯絡。很感恩上年有機會聽他説近況。沒想到是最後一次.....我喜歡我們唐人道別的説話。 我們說再見, 祝願未來會再相遇。我相信,現在的別離是暫時的,我要做好自己,未來可以上到天國的話, 定要再看到他燦爛的笑容,與他談個夠!

永昌摯友千古

世事如萍藻
朝逢夕又分
相識逾四秩
往事記猶新
當年兒女鬧
而今都成人
西逢又東別
重敘特歡欣
君本無憂者
無奈疾緾身
慈魂終解脫
永誌世人心。

錫雲、希德
