21 Dec – After a long hiatus from social media, Sammi Cheng recently made her return to share the news of her father's passing.

On 20 December, the singer posted a photo of her and her father on Instagram, and revealed that he passed away last month following his hospitalisation in October.

"Over the past month or so, my sisters and I had been quietly preparing the funeral for father. He was a Christian, and we had completed a low-key ceremony in church more than ten days ago. I am thankful to friends who came that day," she said.

Although it was a devastating blow to Sammi, who also lost her pet dog Lucky in October, the singer stressed that she will not give up and has been using the time to adjust her body and mind.

"Father is gone, but his love will be with me, and will never die. The Bible says: All things have a time. I know. Looking at father in the photo, I couldn't help but smile. Missing is also a kind of happiness, because we have each other's happiness. When I look up at the sky, among the infinite stars, I always feel that my father is also among them. The stars are twinkling. He seemed to wink at me awkwardly and told me, "Heaven is so beautiful. Daughter, you have to live a good life, continue to work hard and develop yourself". Dad, I will, I will."
