The family will receive friends prior to the service from 12:30 pm, and again after the service, in the reception centre. As expressions of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to University Hospitals Kingston Foundation (St. Mary's of the Lake Hospital Palliative Care) or the Kingston Chinese Alliance Church.
