Sir Richard Lai has been a great inspiration to me, having known him all my nursing life. He sees the potential in each and everyone of us. It is no wonder that he is well known nationally and internationally because of his great contribution to Catholic nurses Guild worldwide and to CICIAMS. Your Life has been greatly Blessed by the Lord, Rest in Peace Sir Richard. We Love You.

I got to know Sir Richard , through CNG activities.
He was always guiding , grooming, inspiring, encouraging us. The
last time i saw him was at the CNG annual dinner in Kuching, he was a little
frail then, doing presentation promoting CNG. I am amazed at his zeal
and enthusiasm and admire him greatly.
i missed his presence last year at the CNG annual dinner in kuching as he was not fit to travel.
Now he ( i never called him 'Sir Richard', he is always my dear friend and mentor, Richard) has gone back toGod the fatherand be with his wife and eldest daughter.
i can imagine Jesus welcoming him , saying to him : well done, my
good and faithful friend...
