Anthony Yeo - in pace requiscat ...

Anthony Yeo passed away on Saturday at the age of 60, from Burkitt's lymphoma. ST has a well written very fitting orbituary for the man.

A mouse who became a lion. How true. Someone we could have easily dismissed as an academic failure, proved himself through his compassion for the marginalized and the down-trodden, to become the Father of Counselling in Singapore, has set an almost impossible example for us to follow.

It does not matter if we do not always agree with him. But we must recognize his greatness during the time he walked with us on this earth.

Mr Yeo, in pace requiscat.
