Our friend and ex-colleague, Shin Na, passed away last Tuesday. We had been expecting the news for some time, but even then, we couldn’t quite believe it when it finally arrived.

Her memorial service was beautiful – a real tribute to an amazing woman.

Shin had breast cancer. She spent a good part of her final years trying to raise awareness about the disease. She would nag her friends to do breast exams, and hand out pamphlets to people she barely knew. So it was fitting that her send-off started with this very moving salute from teammates from her dragon boat team, the Pink Paddlers.

Rest in peace, Shin. You will be missed.
