    A great man has gone home. A visioner, a statesman, a patriot. a transformational leader and father of modern Singapore. The world stands to applaud and the elements bow in concordance. Surely you are not quite dead. No. You live on… in the glow of your worthy legacy – that success of a country called Singapore. You lived well sir, rest well..
