Rest in Peace My Dear Larry:(


Like a comet Blazing 'cross the evening sky  Gone too soon

Like a rainbow Fading in the twinkling of an eye Gone too soon

Shiny and sparkly And splendidly bright Here one day Gone one night

Like the loss of sunlight On a cloudy afternoon Gone too soon

Like a castle Built upon a sandy beach Gone too soon

Like a perfect flower That is just beyond your reach Gone too soon

Born to amuse, to inspire, to delight Here one day Gone one night

Like a sunset Dying with the rising of the moon Gone too soon

Browse through his photo, saw my dolltopia kuda on top of his fire place,
my christmas present to him last 2 years.
He was the reason why I keep teaching book binding passionately, sharing everything I know and I wish I could inspired people as much as he has inspired me. I am paralysed when I got to know today that he was gone, forever. 

Now I know...why there are no answer...You kind of knew..that you not going to be around...My heart are so heavy..when I think of it.

Larry..you are my guru, my motivator, my inspiration, my magician..you will deeply missed..I thought we will meet on my next travel to NZ...ohhh Larry I just can't believe that you are gone. May you rest in peace..I'll make sure your legacy continue. I still keeping compilation of poem you sent me, where I always think it sounded so weird. And that made you truly a unique person. You left so much love and had touched so many heart. How I wish you are much stronger to hold your sorrow.

I remembered we had mistaken you for a painter (tukang cat) on the first day you turned up in the class. Larry that I knew was always wearing Hawaiian Shirt , Khakis Pant and Canvas shoes. You brought million colours with your magic show. You always gave me A+...I love seeing you playing piano...your love towards cats..and your craving for sweet food and royal blue was your favourite colour. I still felt the warmth of your last good bye hug while I left NZ for good. Too much memories and I won't forget the book binding skill you passed on to me and your encouragement to continuously spread the skill, even how difficult it is sometimes. 

Lots and loads of love///syam
