永遠懷念冼愛蘭姊妹

A Eulogy for Our Dearest Mama

Among all kinds of relationships, a mother-daughter relationship is one of those profound bonds filled with ardent love beyond words, but I will try my best to put words to the love we once shared. She came into our lives as a stay-at-home mother who not only birthed but also raised us unconditionally. However, she was not your average housewife – she was always something more.

She had always been an explorer who set out to teach herself things, immersing herself into adventures in cookery and knitting, while astonishing everyone around her with her dexterity and talents. I would never forget how she enjoyed preparing for big feasts for us and our friends at birthday and Christmas parties, indulging us meals after meals. As an ambitious explorer, her mastery of cookery wasn’t enough as she began to make her own dresses. Without any training, she made party dresses for us from scratch only to make her daughters happy. That’s her – a mother who dared to step out of her comfort zone only to fulfil the needs of her twin daughters.

This adventurer inside her knew how to get her priorities straight; she put everyone else – her husband and her two daughters – before herself. Ever since the moment we were born, she had devoted her life to this family, sacrificing herself. We’re truly honoured and grateful to have such a strong woman like her as our mother – our forever role model.

Not only was her wholehearted dedication to our family admirable but it was also her fearlessness and fortitude. In her denouement of life, she was indisputably proven as a lionhearted warrior. Throughout her agonizing battles against cancer, she held on to her faith in earning one day more while enduring excruciating physical and mental pain. I could never imagine how difficult it was for her, but there’s one thing I know for sure: her strength – either physical or mental – was undefeatable. Despite the hardship, she did not lack blessings. We are thankful that throughout her last journey, she was immersed in love from her siblings, friends, and God. She will forever stay in our hearts as the strongest woman we have ever known.

Rest in peace, mommy!  We’ll see you again!
