“I have no regrets. I have spent my life, so much of it, building up this country. There’s nothing more that I need to do. At the end of the day, what have I got? A successful Singapore. What have I given up? My life.” – Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Hard Truths
We would like to invite you to a Memorial Service to honour Mr Lee Kuan Yew and his innumerable contributions to shaping Singapore to what she is today. During the Service, tributes and a minute of silence will be observed for the late former Premier. A condolence book will be available for you to pen your messages. The Memorial Service will be held on 14 April 2015 at 6:30pm. The Service will be held at Lecture Theatre 7, Hicks Building and formal attire (black and white) is mandatory. Being thousands of miles away from the island we are proud to call home, it was especially saddening to hear of Mr Lee’s passing. The Committee at Sheffield Singapore Society would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to the Lee Family.
UPDATED WITH PICTURES:
The Service started off with our Society’s President and Vice-President, Alexander and Sharmaine’s tribute to Mr Lee before a couple of our members took to the microphone to express their thoughts.
A minute of silence was then observed before the pledge was recited. After the service, a condolence book was at the front of the LT for Singsoc members to pen their condolences and well wishes to the Lee Family.
The condolence book will be handed over to the Singapore Embassy in London to be given to Mr Lee’s family.
