I rushed back to Hong Kong to attend the funeral of my brother, Willie Chan. But just as I arrived, I received another sad and heartbreaking news. Mona Fong Yat Wah, Lady Shaw, my ‘Fong Jie’…passed away…. She and Run Run Shaw have watched me grow from an absolute nobody to a person that people became to know. We’ve known each other for so many decades. She’s a close friend and someone I highly respect. I last saw her in March while I was in Hong Kong, and we said that we’d have a party next time I’m in town. I’d never thought that that day was the last day I’d ever see her…. A lot of people don’t realize that saying ‘goodbye’ today might be the last goodbye ever! You might not get a chance to say it again. 

Saying goodbye to my two close friends tonight has been tough. Words cannot describe how I feel at the moment. Why is it that we only truly understand how to cherish people after they’re gone? My dearest Fong Jie, Rest In Peace. My dearest brother, Rest In Peace. You’re always in my heart.
