重于泰山

Sometime last week Boss informed me that Dr J A Tambyah had passed away. He had been suffering from end stage cancer. I couldn’t help but feel a frisson of sadness, although I never knew him.

He was an endocrinologist, one of the pioneers of local medicine and had had taught generations of medical students. We had arranged to interview him for the March issue this year, but the interview fell through because he was in great pain. 真的好可惜啊!

And now that he is gone, our editor Dr THC has gotten Dr Tambyah’s son to work with a friend of his father’s on an obituary for our April issue.

我突然想起:人固有一死,或轻于鸿毛,或重于泰山……
