Alvin Lim

It is with sadness that I report that Alvin Lim passed away suddenly and unexpectedly last week. I learned of this from this post that Hecta saw on sydneyanglicans.net.

I knew Alvin & Michelle from our days at St Barnabas Broadway when I was still at university. Alvin & Michelle were my bible study group leaders for a while, and I remember our friendship fondly.

I remember once at their house in Lewisham (after a few minutes of Alvin & Michelle discussing it) getting called in to offer my opinion on whether it was necessary to polish wine glasses after they had been dried with a tea towel. (I was on Alvin's side - polish them of course!)

Our prayers are with Michelle and family at this time.

Update: John Anderson reports that Alvin’s memorial service will take place at 2pm Tuesday 24/7/07 at St Paul’s Anglican Church, Menai.
