Carl D Chung
A personification if genuine friendship of more than three quarters of our lives. From our youthful days cruising around Georgetown on motor cycles with our girlfriends ( later our beloved wives ) to the many enjoyable visits at each other’s homes from when we were starting young families to later as widowers . Even though we lived in different countries for most of my life our friendship thrived because of his thoughtfulness and Sincere concern. I will miss him dearly as there will no longer those thoughtful phone calls on special occasions

Dear Lurlene, Jacqui, Shaun, Garry, and respective families,

Remember the smiling, the talking, laughing, the sharing, caring and loving. May it comfort you to know that one of the most treasured possessions your loved one left is a heart full of cherished memories.

We fondly remember the good times spent with "Dad Carl" over the past 32 years (for the most part meeting him in his favourite wear - short pants) and felt so honoured last Saturday to be at his bedside to share our love with him. May he rest in peace!

"No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither Angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord" Romans 8:37-39.

Love always,
Leslie and Mary
