Updates from Nicole Laoshi's Wake.
*Picture Courtesy of Joey*
I told myself i must get down to visit Laoshi for the very last time.
So yesterday after work, i went down with Joyce.
Well, I realised it doesnt really takes much effort for one to be remembered for life.
Nicole is one of da best example i've encountered.
My encounter with her was only once or twice but this sweet lady got me connected to her so much to da extend i broke down naturally yesterday.
Imagine, I'm not her student, neither am i her relatives, how could i feel as much as they did?
You'll understand why in a moment when i write out some of the testimonials by her students & loved ones..
Well, you'll nv imagine all she ever did to impress me was giving valuable comments to contestants during a variety show. :)
Since then, i grew so fond to this musician & wanted to know more about her. Now tat she's left, i somewhat wish i've known her longer.
Neeway, yeap, i went there, saw laoshi. She's still as pretty as always, resting with a bible on her. :)
There were some performances going round by her best buddies in music later on in da night, some also sisters & brothers in Christ.
Started da night with Amazing Grace, singing praises to Lord, following some demos Laoshi once work tgt with them, & then Hymes again.
In between Nicole's dear ones came up one by one, grp by grp dedicating their speech, some sang her fav songs & then giving testimonials on LaoShi.It was a heart warming moment. Tears rolled down some faces.
Some testimonials i really think reflects well on Laoshi.
-She has always been passionate about wadever things she does
-She lives to learn, learn to live
-makes an effort to help everyone in need
-she was a great student, tat makes a a greater teacher :)
Alot more actually, But i'd love to put nicole's spirit onto myself tat is
Dare to dream, if you have a dream..go for it..nv give up & be passionate in wadever things you do...
I think i shouldnt be writing this much, just remember while you can, do wad ever you like with PASSION ya..:)
Well, i shall end off with two really wonderful song, one of which is Nicole Laoshi's fav.Because He Lives
God sent His Son, they called Him Jesus
He came to love,heal and forgive
He lived and died, to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know who holds the future
My life is worth the living just because He livesTeach Me To Worship You-Nicole's Fav
Teach me to worship You
Teach me to adore You
I want to love You with my whole being
To learn to praise Your name
Each day to do the same
Teach me O Lord the way to worship You
I want to worship You
I want to adore You
I want to Love You with my whole being
To forsake my sinful ways
To Look upon Your face
And understand Your grace
O Lord my God
I remembered Carmen sang this to Laoshi on her bedside just before she passed away having the lyrics changed to something like..
"Mommy you must stay strong.....Mommy You must hav faith...."
This just makes me teared even more. Well, But the young lady is as strong as her mother.
Something i'm really glad to see...Carmen you mommy really loves you! :)Will be going down today again..& tmr as well.. Tmr is da last day.
Laoshi's body is resting at 129 KimtianRd. Get down to see this great musician,mother,daughter,friend..etc if you would like to.
