I feel really sad at Kue Lui’s passed away but glad that she had believed in Jesus Christ and a daughter of God the Father. Now she can be with The Lord.
I used to be her neighbor until she moved to the LTC facility, she had a very gentle heart, always smiling when she was approached, full of the grace of God. Although she appeared weak physically but her spirit showed strength and determination. She was very proud of her 3 daughters and loved them dearly. She also thank God for a very loving son-in-law who attended to her needs and visited her frequently.
May God bless the family and comforts you during this difficult time as you grieve your loss.

Kue Noi was a joyful person. Her smiles and face reflected the glory and work of God in her life when she talked about her life stories. It was sweet to listen to her connections with her children and grandchildren. I could see she loved , was loved by her family and she was proud of her children and grandchildren. Thank you Kue Noi for the time and sharing we were together.

May the family find comfort that our Lord love Kue Noi, and her soul is at peace with our Heavenly Father. 🙏🙏

I’ll always remember the enjoyable chit chat we had, the “Chung” making session and the yummy food you cooked. Your kind smiles will be missed.

Popo was a gentle soul. Some of my most treasured childhood memories are of our visits to her for dinner, and the amazing food we always shared. She was always so kind, and made us felt loved. I will always remember how, at the end of all of our visits, she would tell us kids, without fail, "listen mummy daddy," and it would put one last smile on everyone's faces before we left. The world will miss you Popo.

I remember being told the stories of when I was very young of her wonderful cooking and how she would spoil me when it came to food as a baby. I also remember my visits when I got to meet her more grown up, more understanding of the kind things she did not just for me but for her family and friends. I remember how her face would light up when finding a particularly delicious dish or when she would have the chance to chat with her children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren. Most of all, I will remember the good times we had together and will forever treasure them in my heart alongside my memories of her.

My PoPo was always a bright existence in my life. I will fondly remember her and her amazing cooking that I got to experience growing up. Every visit was a treat, and her parting words to 'listen to mom and dad' each time, accompanied with a soft smile will forever be part of my memories. I am glad of the time I got to spend with her and will forever cherish the memories I have of her.

To me, she was always PoPo, and I always looked forward to seeing her. No matter what I was struggling with, she always had a certain magic about her that made everything feel fine, and I knew we would be eating something delicious. I think some of my fondest memories with her are around the dinner table, everyone thoroughly enjoying our meal together. I remember her soft voice, her good natured laugh, and her smile that reached her eyes.

Thank you for the time we shared PoPo, I love you and I miss you.

Looking at Aunty's smiling face, many fond memories flooded back to me. She gave us a helping hand when we needed someone to care for my child. She did such a wonderful job, as she was ever so gentle and caring. We are forever grateful for her.
Aunty, you were an angel sent by God. May you always walk with angels in heaven now. You will be dearly missed.
