A memorial service was held for deceased actress, Jacqueline Law (羅慧娟) on July 12, 2012 in the EFCC Tung Fook Church in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. Jacqueline had passed away on June 30th, after a 2-year struggle with pancreatic cancer. Jacqueline’s body was cremated in Singapore, in which her husband, Lau Chi Man (劉志敏) took her ashes to Hong Kong for a memorial service.
Jacqueline’s good friends, Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文), Dicky Cheung (張衛健), Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯), Ada Choi (蔡少芬) and her husband Max Zhang (張晉), Louie Castro (賈思樂), Monica Chan (陳法蓉), and Ben Wong (黃智賢) were among the guests that turned up on Thursday night to pay their last respects to Jacqueline.
Other well-known celebrities including Lau Ching Wan (劉青雲) and his wife Amy Kwok (郭藹明), Margie Tsang (曾華倩), Bowie Lam (林保怡), and Frederick Ma (馬時亨) sent in flower baskets, which were lavishly displayed at the front entrance. However, Stephen Chow (周星馳), who had dated Jacqueline for three years in the 1990s, did not send a basket.
Sammi Cheng arrived at half an hour before the memorial service began. Wearing large sunglasses and a thin black shirt, Sammi was bombarded by reporters after stepping out of her car. Sammi did not respond to any of the reporters’ questions and quietly entered the church. Jacqueline’s mother arrived soon afterwards. Looking noticeably weak and somber, Jacqueline’s mother had to have someone support her.
Jacqueline Law Fondly Remembered by Friends
The memorial was a tearful and heartfelt ceremony. Jacqueline’s friends sang her favorite gospel song, Going Home <回家>. Sheren Tang, who delivered the eulogy speech, said that despite Jacqueline’s sickness, she had always been cheerful and maintained an optimistic view of life. Jacqueline’s last wish was to hope everyone will believe in God. Jacqueline’s courage and fearless trust in God moved Sheren to tears.
Noel Leung (梁小冰) and her daughter also attended the memorial service. Noel said that Jacqueline’s passing taught her to cherish the family and friends around her. Noel said her most unforgettable memory of Jacqueline was when they attended an evangelical service with other female friends, where they spent the whole night together.
Dicky Cheung expressed that everything he wanted to say was already said at Jacqueline’s funeral in Singapore. Asked if he took part in Jacqueline’s memorial video slide show, he admitted that he talked about his past experiences and memories with Jacqueline. He also said that Jacqueline was one of his closest friends in the circle.
After the memorial ended, the press approached Jacqueline’s husband, Lau Chi Man, and asked if he had donated $200,000 HKD to the church. Mr. Lau replied, “This is not important anymore!” He thanked the press for their concerns, while mourning for Jacqueline’s death.
