Thousands of residents turned up at the memorial site in Nee Soon to pay their last respects to the late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. A bagpiper from Northland Secondary School played an unforgettable rendition of Auld Lang Syne and the advisors delivered solemn eulogies. The moving memorial ended on a meaningful candle lighting vigil where everyone was invited to come forward to light up the tea light candles. The candles were placed on a specially constructed map of Singapore surrounding a beautiful painting of Mr Lee. Every single light on the art installation signifies each Singaporean who, together, help brighten the entire Singapore – a nation which bears Mr Lee’s vision.
