Daddy's Eulogy by Jabin

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-7‬ ‭NIV‬‬ 

This verse is usually quoted in marriages but I am quoting it in a funeral service because it is this love that my dad has shown to us. Daddy has been patient to everyone around him. He does not rush others. He does not boast or is proud of himself but he is and I know that he is proud of his three children and our mummy. He rejoices with the truth. He corrects us so that we will do the right thing.


- Daddy works like a horse. He worked very hard in his early days in the Airforce. After he retired, he continued to work in Singapore Aerospace. After he left Singapore Areospace, he started to work as a taxi driver. Then he continued to work as a taxi driver till he had a heart attack. After he recovered from his heart problem, he continued to work in MacDonalds. He works so hard to provide for the family.
- When we were young and when computers were still something that is very new and computers were not available in schools yet, he sent us for enrichment to learn to use computer. We learnt at that time Programmes like word star and word perfect. Those were the times when computer starts with black screen and in for prompt.
- I remember the time when I passed my secondary 4 o-levels. My dad bought me this watch that I have been wearing. It is a tag Heuer. Despite earning a meagre income, he saved to buy me such an expensive watch. It touches my heart whenever I see this watch. That is also the reason for wearing it for 21 years. It reminds me how hard my dad has worked to provide for the family. It also reminds me of his sacrifice he made for us. He scrimped on himself and lavished on us. He gave us the best.

Loving father and husband

- It is not only the material things he had provided for us but he also showed what a Loving Father and a Husband is.
- He has shown us how he treats mummy. When mummy is working hard at home, sometimes while she was washing the dishes, he would come up to her to give my mummy a kiss. He is not shy to show his affection to mummy. And I leant that.
- “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:25-28‬ ‭NIV‬‬ 

God's faithful servant

- Some of you who came yesterday, heard what he has done in church. His diligence in attending prayer meetings. I remembered that when he was discharged from hospital after his fall, he was saying that he could go for prayer meeting.
- When I was younger, I would always hear him in the morning. He would do that usual thing; stirring his cup of coffee, creating a clinking sound. Then he would sit at the table reading the word of God with his reading glasses on. He left a deep impression on me. He is indeed a good and faithful servant.

I would like to play this song in memory of Daddy.

To my beloved daddy.
Cry for me no more.
For I have entered God’s heavenly door.
It is the place of true rest, don’t forget to do your best.
I have found peace with the Creator.
It is now up to you to one day take this journey, too.
Fear not, it is a place where all things are made new.
“Forgive us of our sins” was my chant.
Cry for me no more.
For I have entered God’s heavenly door
