Goodbye, Gideon.

(Late) Gideon Chan (left) and friend.

Yesterday, i was caught off guard after receiving an SMS which stated the following:

I'm sorry to tell you that our bro in Christ, Gideon Chan, has past away this morning.. please pray for his family..

Immediately, i called my friend to confirm the news validity. I was shocked to find out that this young chap, aged 22, was involved in a car accident yesterday morning. It just happened to suddenly.

I got to know Gideon through CF in university. We weren't close, but we had our small talks during CF meetings and in last year's CF camp. I remember he sending me to the PC block in his new Viva after a CF meeting.

Frankly, i don't really know this meek, yet friendly guy well enough, but i was a bit distracted hearing his death yesterday. I heard that a few of the CF members will be visiting him later after CF meeting today.

Well, rest in peace, and hope to meet you in heaven one day, ok?
