Dear Mr Lee Kuan Yew, At this time of your passing, I am penning this down with a heavy heart. When I was in my youth, I have never cared for your "tough love" but now that I am in my middle age, happily married and with a good job, I can never appreciate enough what you have done for Singapore. You have laid the blueprint for economic prosperity, built a safe and green Singapore and paved the way for a vibrant multicultural society thriving on meritocracy. I achieved what I have today because of the foundation you have built in the past. You are and always will be an inspiration to me and countless others. You will never be forgotten.You have given your life to Singapore and you can rest now knowing that your life's work will continue on by so many others inspired by your example. I hope I will be able to contribute in my own small way to honor your memory. With all my love to the founding father of Singapore. Khoo Keng Meng
