81-year-old Teresa Ha (夏萍) passed away on 5th August 2019 and the funeral was conducted at International Funeral Parlour (萬國殯儀館). In the afternoon on 19th August, her godson, Gordon Lam (林家棟) took care of Teresa’s funeral arrangement and the tears were streaming down on his face during the interview. He said: “She was afraid of fire and wanted to be buried. (What is the cause of her death?) She had diabetes, high blood pressure and had a stroke in end July. She took medication to control her illness and it was hard to do more stuff for her especially at her age. At the time, I was working in China and the doctor said he would try his best when asked if Teresa could wait for me to come back. The doctor used medication to prolong her life for another 2 weeks and I finally got to see her for the last time before she passed away.”

Asking about the unforgettable memories of Teresa, Gordon said: “It has been more than 20 years since we work and know each other. She is a very direct person and scolds vulgarities to me frequently. During the working period, she shows concern for everybody and helps me to scratch when I am bitten by a mosquito. Teresa resembles a mother to me and our bonding begins to improve. (Any wishes from Teresa?) She is worried once gone and I told her not to worry since I am around. Honestly speaking, she feels quite lonely and I can only try to show more concern for her. 10 years ago, I told her to go to old folks home but she refused and somebody only rescued her after falling down for more than 10 hours a few years ago. From then onward, I insisted that Teresa must go to old folks home and told Johnnie To (杜琪峯) to make the arrangement quickly. The procedure was completed within 2 to 3 days and she was worried about her subsequent life. I assured her that I would support her forever as her godson.”
