Raymond Lam's grandmother passed away, no fate to see 3rd HK Coliseum Concert
Raymond Lam's paternal grandmother (Lam Wong Tat) passed away in her dreams at age 95. The funeral was held today in Hong Kong, after cremation, her remains will be sent back to the family's hometown in Xiamen. Towards his grandmother's passing, Raymond felt it was very sudden and regrets she wasn't able to see his third HK Coliseum concert.
Yesterday at 3pm, Raymond and his family including his father, younger brother and cousin (Lam Ha Mei) were at the Hong Kong funeral home preparing for the memorial. He changed into a white mourning outfit and accepted an interview with his cousin. Raymond reveals his grandmother is a very cute elder, and had been ill for a period of time before her death. He said: "My grandmother recovered from her condition, and has been in good shape for a short while, so she left this world in her dreams. I feel its very sudden." At the scene, it was seen Raymond's family were all in white mourning clothes, but some of had pink colored clothing. He explained the Lam family 4 generations lives under the same roof, the ones in pink mourning clothing are his grandmother's great grandchildren.
Raymond's HK Coliseum concert is just around the corner, Raymond sighed: "In the past two years, my grandmother came to my concert, I never thought this year she won't be there. But, I will report to her!" When the time comes, will he do the same and leave a seat for her? He said: "Initially I did leave one for her, I will continue to be strong and prepare for my concert. When the memorial completes tomorrow, I will resume my rehearsals." As Raymond's father business is well-known in Xiamen and his grandfather was once the vice chairman of the Fushan CPPCC, yesterday besides Virgina Lok, Ron Ng, Kate Tsui, Joey Yung, Twins and Leo Ku, there were also many businessmen and government officials who sent memorial wreaths.

Raymond Lam cries biding farewell to grandmother
Raymond's grandmother funeral started at 10:30am yesterday, but Raymond and his family arrived at 9am. When Raymond got out of the car, he looked very much in grief, but politely stopped for reporters to take pictures. Without a single word, he walked inside into the funeral home. As the eldest grandson, Raymond was responsible to carry his grandmother's photo when the ceremony began. After 1 hour, Raymond was seen tearing up taking his deceased grandmother photo out to the funeral car and headed off to the crematory.
