Ronny Chng

October 19, 1971 - April 22, 2021

It has been a year since Ronny's departure and he is still very much missed. My daughter, Claire, and I find ourselves quoting him rather often in many of our conversations. Therefore, we created this GatheringUs memorial to collect other quotes, stories, memories or pictures of Ron you would like to...  see more

"For the greater good", "Don't sweat the small things in life", "Humility is key", "Don't limit yourself" were some quotes he shared.My love, my friend, my partner in crime, my sounding board and my devil's advocate, till we meet again.

    The future is what we look forward to, the present is what we live for, the past is what we remember of. And in some part of my memory, you will always be there cos we began as friends in the silly young years.

    "Ever thine, ever mine, ever ours"

    White shirts
    Dark pants
    Ties air

    Phone still
    Watch stopped
    Keys stowed

    Couch there
    Seat bare
    Emptiness stares

    Pain spreads
    Tears stream
    Hollowness swallow

    365 since
    Us left
    Blue looms

    We miss
