懷念您,朱嘉明先生

兒女是耶和華所賜的產業;

所懷的胎是他所給的賞賜  詩篇 127:3

嘉明出生於1961622, 籍貫廣東省中山縣, 他是家中獨子, 有家姐淑儀及妹妹敏儀。

嘉明於1987年與吐蘭結婚, 婚後育有長女洛彥Melody及兒子冠皓Dormeo

他自少聰明, 善良, 口齒伶俐, 遺傳了爸爸的俊朗, 及媽媽做人堅持的個性, 所以家人很疼愛他, 特別是媽媽。

 

 

至於我和我家,我們必定事奉耶和華  約書亞記24:15

他自出生至5歲身體一直不好, 患上嚴重哮喘病, 婆婆及媽媽遍尋名醫都不能醫治他痊癒,最後媽媽向上帝懇求, 嘉明便得到醫治, 從此我們一家便成為了基督徒, 

嘉明一生並非所有事情都隨他的心意思念, 但憑家人對他的疼愛及支持, 他也一步一步的走了過來。

我雖然行過死蔭的幽谷也不怕遭害 因為你與我同在 

你的杖,你的竿,都安慰我  詩篇23:4

2017年嘉明確診患上大腸癌, 家人都感晴天霹靂, 4年來他做過手術,25次標把化療、5次電療, 病魔把他的身體折磨到瘦骨嶙峋, 但他從未放棄, 積極配合治療, 他堅信天父必定與他同在, 必定看守他, 醫治他 他將身心全心全意交託, 堅守天父的道及那份從衪而來的堅持與勇敢。

耶和華安慰傷心的人~我一生一世必有恩惠、慈愛隨著我,

我且要住在耶和華的殿中,直到永遠  詩篇34:18/23:6

20211012日早上, 天父終於接了嘉明回天家與爸爸媽媽團聚。嘉明對生命的堅持, 見證上帝給他的美好, 他是真正的生命戰士, 他終於戰勝病魔在天家與爸爸媽媽共享永生。

我們對嘉明的離去縱使有萬般的不捨得和難過, 但知道他再沒有疾病痛苦, 再無在世的憂慮,這必定是上帝對他最好的美意。

*************嘉明你的一生是我們最大的驕傲*************

Children are a heritage from the Lord, 

offspring a reward from him. Psalm 127:3

Chu Ka Ming Kamann was born on June 22, 1961, originally from Guangdong Zhongshan.  As a son in the family of three, he has an older sister Christina and younger sister Peianka. 

In 1987, he married to Wong To Lan Fanny. In 1988, he had a daughter Melody followed by a son Dormeo in 2001. 

As a young child, Kamann was a kindhearted, adorable, clever boy who inherited his father’s handsomeness and his mother’s persistent character. All family members love Kamann especially his mother.

But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24.15

Growing up, Kamann suffered from asthma until the age of five years old. His mother and grandmother looked for many doctors who could help, unfortunately it didn’t, his sickness did not seem to get better. Afterwards, his mother committed to Christ, asking the Lord to heal his son and God answered. As a result, the whole family committed to Christ.

Despite all the challenges Kamann has faced in his life, his family’s constant support and love allowed him to persevere. 

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, 

I will fear no evil for you are with me; 

your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4

In 2017, Kamann was diagnosed with intestinal cancer, and our family felt discouraged and worried. 

In the last four years, he had one surgery, 25 sessions of target chemotherapy and 5 sessions of radiotherapy. Although he suffered, this sickness allowed God to take control of his fear and distrust, convicting him to become a faithful follower. He trusted in God’s protection and healing. The Holy Spirit granted him sufficient power and courage to persistently fight through every trial and tribulation. 

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted 

and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. 

Psalm 34:18 / 23.6

On October 12, 2021, he was reunited with his mom, dad, and our Heavenly Father. As a fighter, Kamann never ceased to praise God for each day he was blessed with, firmly believing that the Lord’s providence is always the best. The beautiful gift of spending our eternal lives with Father God is worth rejoicing for. Kamann’s sorrowful departure was excruciating, but we praise God for mending his heart, minimizing his suffering. Truly, God knows and answered Kamann’s prayers until his last moments. His life was an incredible testimony of the Lord’s goodness. May he live in our hearts forever.

我和丈夫嘉明係同学,由相识到拍拖,结婚,生了一对兒女,一直到他離世已剛好四十三年了。這四十三年我倆經歷不少风雨和美好嘅回忆,他一生是一个鬥士勇于面对,也很堅強。自从他信主之后,对人生亦都改变,也改变了我!2017年他患了癌症,對我们是一个沉重打击,眼見他被病魔折磨,我们心里好难过,在他人生最后日子我一直陪伴住他,直至最后入医院也只一天他就离开了,到天父怀裏,我們也很感恩,因知道他已和他爸爸妈妈在天家团聚,所以他已了无牵挂,全然交托天父,嘉明你也不用担心我们,我們已釋懷开心了。

Fanny – Wife

The relationship between my father and I wasn’t a simple father/son relationship. He was my guardian, my mentor, my advisor, my best friend and my hope. He always taught me to be independent because he knew he wouldn’t be able to walk next me one day, what we both didn’t expect was that “that day” would come by so soon. He was my inspiration and my drive in life. He was someone who would support me whole-heartly without question if it was right or wrong. He truly was a “Super Dad.” 

He was the one who truly showed me that God was within us. No matter what struggles we had, he would tell us that it is in God’s hand. At first I thought he was just being in denial but in reality, God was really protecting us. He showed unwavering faith even till his last breath. 

Before his passing, God showed me a vision and that vision told me to be strong and it was time to let go. The morning that I woke up, I got a notification from my bible app and that verse was 1 John 4:15. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding: in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your path straight.” When I saw this verse pop up on my phone, I felt heavy hearted but at the same time, I could feel God upon me.

I wasn’t able to see my father’s last breath because God knew I wouldn’t be able to handle the shock so he granted me mercy. When he returned to heaven, I was actually asleep in the car and when I woke, I heard he had peacefully passed away without suffering any pain. This is truly a blessing for me because he always talked about how he were to pass away, he would like to leave quickly without suffering. God really is great for granting both my father and I mercy. 

Even though he isn’t with me physically, I could feel his spirit both within me and watching over me. I feel relieved knowing that my father is safe in God’s hand. I still have many regrets but I know he is up there watching me. I love you dad, may you rest in peace and like you always tell me.

“Even if we are far apart, as long as you are in my heart, we will never be truly apart.”

Dormeo – Son

 

我希望爸爸上到天堂可以见到狗狗豆豆,可以见到嫲嫲,一家团聚開開心心,我總觉得爸爸還沒有離開,我睡觉驚醒時總是覺他仍在我身邊,並沒有離開过我,所以我不會不開心,我希望爸爸可以在天堂快快乐乐生活。

Melody – Daughter

從我1歲多,你便出現在我生命裏,你我一起長大,你是我弟弟,但外人總覺得你是我哥哥,從小到大你對我的愛護,我對你的疼一直沒變。

我在人生所有軌跡裡一直都有你,小時候你陪我玩,扮小販,披著毛巾扮武俠片裏大俠,長大了,你帶我去party, 去爬山,打羽毛球,什至搗蛋捉弄別人,這些事情都是歷歷在目,像是昨天!

4年多前,你患上重病,你那份堅持,勇敢,從不放棄的精神,非一般人可以承受,家姐以你為傲!我曾經擔心你會比媽咪先離開,我擔心媽咪經不起喪子之痛,天父聽我的禱告,你終可以送媽咪最一程,甚至站在講台前述説媽一生,你很叻呀!

在你最後的日子,見到你與病魔搏鬥,見到你瘦骨嶙峋的身驅,我很心痛。12/10 你終於放手,用了很短的時間跟隨天父返了天家,不用再受疾病痛苦,再沒憂慮的在天國與爸爸媽咪團聚。你的離開,家姐感到撕心肺裂的痛,但是你最後不用多受痛苦,像孩子睡著了的離開,那是多麼的完美呀!

你累了,也要放心,好好在天堂與爸爸媽咪守䕶著我們呀!

Christina – Sister

My dearest 哥哥,  You called my name
我的守護天使我的知心閨蜜我心愛的妹妹
I will always love you, You are my protector
You are my hero, You are my comforter

I was saddened in my heart but I am thankful you passed on peacefully without struggle. I know you are praising the lord until your last breath. You are a faithful believer. You has touched many with your faith and trust in God in all. I am so proud of you. You reminded us need to confess our sins to Him and seek His forgiveness without delay. Always thankful be joyful pray unceasingly. You  can rejoice in Christ by recognizing that your suffering isn’t in vain. Through your difficult circumstances, God puts people in your life with whom we can share the message of Jesus. I may even be encouraged to do the same.

Finally I am so glad you made your choice to surrender to the will of God and you are now in the presence of the Lord, seated with Him, made whole and perfect I know one day I shall be reunited with you, mommy and daddy in eternity. No more sorrows no more pain..  Although there’s so much that you’ve left bare. I am so proud that you had to endure such pain in the

past 4 years. It really is like a hole in my life But I have hope that those sleeping will rise. The Bible says that God will open their eyes. No suffering, sickness, yes not even pain. Those who believe in Jesus Christ eternal life they’ll gain.

So… sleep on my brother, sleep tight.
For now with you the sky is night. 

But after night will come daybreak
Therefore I will wait hoping to see you awake.
My dear brother  now that you are gone.
You’re no longer here to share. The bond we had together –
A bond of love and care. Yet, somehow something tells me
You are watching over me. You finally are free.
I miss you so very much, And my tears I cannot hide
Yet, within my heart, I feel. You are always by my side.

Peianka – Sister

嘉明是我的大舅,我與Peianka廿多歲拍拖時已認識他,當時的印象他是個「花弗」的人。我在他們家中吃過晚飯,他便匆匆忙忙出街約會,每天如是,「電燈着,鬼掹脚」這是我外父說的 !

我對Kamann有深刻的認識了解是在過去的五、六年日子,患病使他重新檢視反省人生價值,他再次下決心跟隨主耶穌,認罪悔改,與人復和、寬恕,渴慕神的話聆聽了温偉耀老師所有的講道,發自內心為人為己的祈禱,這都是我親身所見証的 !

在準備嘉明的感言時我想起一個耶稣在聖經說的比喻故事,有個牧羊人有一百隻羊,放羊時走失去一隻羊,他情願把九十九隻留下在曠野,也要去尋找那失落的一隻,直到找著了那一隻,就歡歡喜喜地把羊放在肩上,回到家裡,對親朋好友說:「請大家和我一同歡樂,因為我失去的羊已經找到了!」那牧羊人愛那一隻迷羊,不會因為那隻羊是弱小的,是不聽話走失的,也不會因為已經有99隻而放棄它,一定要找到它,放在肩上歡喜快樂地把它帶回家!上帝同樣的愛嘉明,在他在人生迷失、病患中,尋找他,呼喚他回轉,接纳他,安慰鼓勵他,也醫治他。牧羊人將找到那羊抬上肩膀,歡喜帶回家, 同樣今天主耶稣已經快樂的懷抱嘉明,帶他回天家里。

Chris – Brother in Law

My uncle is a joy to everyone around him. He is humorous, sociable, and most importantly, brought me to school when my parents forgot to wake-up. When he committed his life to Jesus Christ, not only did he begin to change for the better, but he would openly discuss about mistakes and lessons he had learned from his past. My uncle was not afraid of his failures, and often encouraged me to enjoy life and never take anything for granted. He always thought of others first, a trait I believe every successful person should possess. Despite his arduous battle with sickness, he loved every single member of our family. He showed me what living in the light of God could bring, a true testimony for Christ. I will miss him dearly and will forever cherish all the good memories we shared. 

Cardiff – Nephew

Humorous. Selfless. A courageous fighter for Christ. That’s who my uncle was in essence, three attributes I admire most about him even to this day.

I still remember the first time sitting in his bright-blue race car ready to go to school, swifting through the hectic city of Hong Kong on an early morning twenty minutes before I was late. Little did I know, my uncle was no ordinary driver, he was the fastest, smoothest, most fun-loving person to be around. His contagious smile, never-ending jokes, and intriguing stories about his teenage years never ceased anyone to draw close to him without hesitation. He was such an approachable, humorous man that brought unstoppable joy to everyone around him. Nonetheless, he concealed his burdens, fears, and pain around others because lighting positivity to his loved ones was everything he lived for. The selfless character this man encompasses truly inspires me each day, and I believe God has found favour in who he is. As someone who has experienced excruciating suffering and weakness, the Lord has never stopped laying his comforting hands on him, I believe His steadfast love casts out all fear. When I look at my uncle’s overflowing faith in the Lord’s guidance and sovereignty over his life, I was reminded of Psalm 23:4 “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for You are with me, Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” At the lowest valleys he was not alone with the Lord closes by his side. When he stood on the mountain tops, my uncle lifted his eyes and selflessly gave God the greatest glory. On this day of remembrance on Uncle Kamann, may we never forget the lasting impact and powerful witness of God’s grace he has testified his entire life. May we continue to lift our heads up high and claim victory over death the Lord has granted him. May we be comforted in assurance that Uncle is in full communion with Our Heavenly Father, free from suffering, every tear wiped away, smiling in Heaven with our Mighty Lord.

The days we have held in our arms for a short while we will hold in our hearts forever. You will be greatly missed, Uncle. We love you, until we meet again.
