She was a legendary activist and champion of the oppressed and marginalized. Deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.
What can I say?
I am upset and really lost for words at the sudden demise of a person who had known me as a baby in Sungei Petani, Kedah!

Our families were very close!

Whenever I meet her and her husband Joe, I always hold her and embrace her warmly for she has contributed so much in her dedication, devotion and conviction for the Malaysian community and its many causes!

She will always be warmly loved by all who she has touched in her simplicity, love and kindness.

I thank the LORD for her and her mountains of contribution to the Malaysian society!

We will always love you Irene!
