    Then again, at age 91, with all the contributions that he has made, I think he's lived a full life and it's time for him to have a rest.

    S'pore does owe this man a great debt of gratitude indeed.

    I was not too young to remember this great man. A very humble man. If you met him in person you will know he holds no air about him. A very very smart man. If I have to say who really was the brain behind a lot of what made the successes for Singapore and the main political party. He is it. A man of little words and boast but a rock solid planner and man of far reaching vision.

    We owe much to this fellow Singaporean who gave much of himself. A life well lived. He shall be remembered.

    A man of substance.
    A man of few words.
    A man of ingenuity.
    A family man.
    A true Singaporean.

    Then again, not all his ideas were fair, notably Malays in critical SAF positions, that one is very wrong.
