我祖父去天平安过世了。

由于这两年都在新加坡读书,很少有机会遇到祖父。但我记得好几个月前探访他的时候,他慷慨地给了我一笔零用钱好让我回去花。那让我好惊讶,因为我知道祖父向来都是非常省吃俭用的人!这让我体会到他对我们孙子们的爱。

他十四岁的时候,父亲就回去了中国。身为长子,他就必须负起养家的责任。我想,从此他就培养了永不罢休,不怕吃苦的精神。 前天,我们还看到他殷勤地在吉打购物中心工作!

虽然他已不在,但他为饶家作出的一切牺牲和付出,我们永远感激不尽。他自强不息,努力奋斗的精神,我们也会永记在心。

My grandfather passed away peacefully yesterday.

Since I’ve been in Singapore these 2 years, I’ve rarely seen him. I remember, however, visiting him a few months back. He generously gave me some pocket money to “buy fruits to eat” in Singapore. I was so surprised as I’ve always known him to be a very thrifty man. His gesture demonstrated to me how much he loved us as his grandchildren.

When my grandpa was 14, his father went back to China. Being the eldest son in the family, the responsibility of feeding his family fell onto his shoulders. I believe that is why till his last breath, my grandpa was a diligent and persistent man. The day before he passed away, we even saw him working at Kedah Shopping Center!

Although he is not with us anymore, we will forever cherish his sacrifice for the Yow family. His values of discipline, hardwork and courage will be remembered by all of us.
