Most of you here do not know James (CPF handle, tankahn) and it is not surprising since he is mainly a lurker here in CPF. However, I am going to give credit where credit is due to a gentleman whose heart is on his flashlight hobby as well as the CPF community. Without him, my "Night Trekking" beam shots would not have been possible. He is very much with the idea of me doing my "Night Trekking" series found on my signature below, and has been a source of my motivation and inspiration in completing the series. As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and no one, absolutely no one is spared from the inevitable loosing of one's life.
Exactly one month before 17th May 2013, James was diagnosed with liver cancer. He put up a good fight but unfortunately succumbed to the powers of cancer. He has since left this world on 17th May 2013.
James have been a genuine friend to many, being without a child he is a great uncle to all his nieces and nephews, and is a source of knowledge to many who seek. He is always on the lookout for information to further his knowledge base and have been teaching his nephews and nieces about the art of mind mapping even before it was brought into the eduction system here in Singapore. Without him, I wouldn't be in CPF, for it was he who introduced me to the CPF community here and I am eternally grateful for a wonderful friend like him.
I want to thank CPF Admin, Norm, for taking the time and effort to open this thread up so that all of us could remember him and know about his contribution to the community here, whether in ways big or small.
May he rest in peace and God bless his soul.
Rest In Peace CPF member tankahn
