Ong Peck Lye was a man of peace and wisdom.
The Singaporean businessman knew that his time was drawing near, so he called his family. His son penned the following poem in the first person. It is based on conversations he had with his father in his last days. His family then asked them to submit the poem as his official obituary.
Ong Peck Lye’s obituary is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever read. His message resonates, ‘I dared to live and now I dare to die. This life is short, but it is beautiful, boundless and has potential to be abundant in every way. Know that’s what you deserve, and that is what you will have.
