Raymond Cho Wing Lim's father Cho Siu Chuen earlier passed away due to illness at the age of 79. Yesterday his family held a wake for him at the Grand Peace Funeral Parlour and the funeral at 10AM the next morning. The funeral will be a Buddhist ceremony. Cho Wing Lim's mother in law Lee Lam Lam and her younger son Chiang Cheuk Man were on hand, but father in law John Chiang Dai Wei due to a series production was unable to personally pay his respect. Cho Wing Lim said that his father has always had hereditary diabetes. In recent years he often has been hospitalized. His father passed away two months ago due to acute organ failure, the situation was rather dire. He continued, seeing how hard it was on his father, he felt that his passing instead was a release.
Cho Wing Lim around 5PM first left with his children. He said that his son already understood the passing of his grandfather because when his father in law Chiang Dai Wai's mother passed away earlier, his son already understood what death was. Thus this time before Grandpa passed away he "snuck" his son in to see his grandfather one last time. His son even said that he would miss Grandpa.
Speaking of his father, Cho Wing Lim said that when he was little his father was in business and his family was doing well. At the time Papa often brought him to night clubs but not to mess around. He only sang and drank with friends. Later because the business went bad, his father became a street vendor and he helped. Cho Wing Lim felt that his father was very tough. Later when he was no longer a vendor, he went to work as a security guard and on government jobs. At the time his father in order to raise his four sons had no complaint at all. Speaking of his father's final wish, Cho Wing Lam said that his father had sons and grandchildren, he believed that he no longer had any wish left to be fulfilled.
