At 9.30am this morning, my wife Catherine and I trekked up Gunung Suku to the very spot where the late Bernard Lee collapsed. To mark the spot we did a tripod stand by the track using cut trees. I then nailed a small cross on the tree marker. Finally, we prayed for the soul of the late Bernard Lee before trekking back.
|Along the track just before we arrived to the spot, we
saw these strange flowers, maybe |
this flowers is to welcome us to Gunung Suku to pray for Bernard Lee R.I.P. - this is the first tree.
|This is the first time we have seen such flowers on the main tree
trunk instead of branches |
- can anybody give me the name of this tree?

|This is the second tree on the track, very near to the place where Bernard collapsed.|

|To mark the spot, we did a tripod stand by the track using cut trees and then nailed a small cross on the tree marker.|
|I will be taking friends of the late Bernard Lee to Gunung Suku on 12th April, 9am at the car park. All friends are cordially invited to this track up to the summit of Gunung Suku and also to pray for the soul of the late Bernard Lee RIP.|

The photos below of beautiful wild flowers and fruits taken (9.2.2014) on the track of Gunung Suku are in remembrance of the late Bernard Lee Kar Giap and in the sincere tender of our sympathies to his relatives - from backpackers: Ching Neng Bin, Lee Kam Boon, Chew Leng Soon, Chan Meng Fye, Lim Kee Moon, Datuk Mohanadas Nagappan, Cindy Chong, Lily Yap, Tay Seok Hooi, Wong Lai Van, Christine Leong, Thomas Fong Choon Tuck, Tan Keng Hui, Lim Cheng Tee, and Silvarajo.
God our Father, your power brings us to birth, your wisdom guides our lives, and by your command we return to dust. Lord, those who die still live in your presence, their lives change but do not end. I pray in hope for Bernard’s family, relatives and friends, and for all the dead known to you alone. In company with Christ, who died and now lives, may they rejoice in your kingdom, where all our tears are wiped away. Unite us together again in one family, to sing your praise forever and ever. Amen.
