First paragraph (this article has no abstract)
We are here today to remember and celebrate the life of Kuan-Teh Jeang. The 12 days since his passing haven’t made this day any easier, have they? I still feel numb --- as numb as the day I heard the news. I will feel numb, I’m sure, 12 days from now and long after that. Like many of you, I just can’t believe that I can’t call up Teh for advice or, indeed, just call him for no reason at all.
