The Trials, Victories & Adventures of Los PaulOS

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. ~ 1 John 4:18

Suddenly...

Amidst all the fun posts, there's always a Sudden break in it these days.. Life is tough..
This sudden occurence is about my friend's passing away.. or shall I be forthright with it, murdered.

Yes my friend from DUMC was murdered according to some early sources (update it seems she wasn't, but due to being tied up etc, she suffocated/asphyxia). I didn't know her to a depth that I would say we were close friends, but we were always cordial to each other in church. Lovena, Lowena or Peng as most of us called her, was not taken back to Heaven, nor called back to the Lord, instead she was forced to her departure from planet earth.

*italics updated due to latest news*

Her life was taken from her un-intentionally by someone, whom the police have yet to ascertain or as to what manner. She was found tied up and already decomposing. The last anyone saw of her was on Friday night, her body was found only on Monday Night or so. We pray and hope that this outrageous act will be laid clear and bare and that the perpetrator will be brought to justice. Apparently it was theft/burglary and she suffocated due to prolonged bondage or something to that matter of fact.

I am still in a state of shock. How do you pray? How do you comfort? We can only rely on God's strength. May God give all of us peace. We hope that in the last moments of her life, she did not curse nor fault God for this, but continued to have the eternal hope and trust in Him, that she now rests with the Father.

Peng has been a faithful servant in church, always bubbly and cheerful. She served specifically in the Make Up Artist area for most if not all our Punctuation Production. Taking time and pains to travel from work in KL to PJ to do our make up and then back to Ampang late at night to her apartment. Many times sacrificing hours and money (for taxi & make up equipment) for our production.

I will miss her, for the many times as she put make up on my face, she'd suddenly speak in Cantonese to me, forgetting that I didn't understand much Cantonese. She'd then slap her forehead, forgetting that I wasn't able to understand her, and then laugh out loud at her mistake.

May the Lord bless us all with peace and comfort. Rest in Peace my dear sister Peng.. We'll miss your bubbliness and simply say it as it is attitude.

You can read more details at my friend's Joshua's website and also CC's website

    The word suddenly here is apt. Peng, may you rest in peace. You are in a better place now, free from turmoil and strive. You'll be missed :(

    Hi, Paul. I noticed you linked to the wake page of Joshua's blog. Probably should link to the previous page "A friend, murdered" as that has more reflections rather than just telling where wake is.

    God bless,
    Ian

    Ah, I see you've made the change. Thanks.

    People, the pengyaus Google group is a memorial for Peng. Reflections and photos there.
