Jacqueline Law (羅慧娟) passed away on June 30, 2012 due to pancreatic cancer. During her struggles with her illness, Jacqueline had written a book detailing her obstacles, hoping to inspire other people to have greater optimism in life. The collection of Jacqueline’s thoughts have been published posthumously in a book entitled Living on Earth is like Living in Heaven <活在地上-如同活在天上>.
With the book set to debut, several of Jacqueline’s good friends such as Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯), Dicky Cheung (張衞健), Cindy Au (歐倩怡), and Peter Cheung (張崇德) supported her by participating in the book release press conference. During the event, Sheren, Dicky, and Jacqueline’s husband, Lau Chi Man (劉志敏) shared their loving memories of Jacqueline with the public.
Sheren and Jacqueline Were Similar
Jacqueline’s close friend, Sheren felt comforted and happy to contribute to this book event for Jacqueline. Sheren revealed that they were quite similar in personality. They both had a rough exterior, but they were actually quite fragile. They were childlike and pursued simple things. She admired Jacqueline’s bravery when facing death and said, “I knew that Jacqueline was a normal human being. She was, of course scared. Who wouldn’t be scared? She really loved beauty. Being affected by cancer, how would she not be afraid to turn ugly? During the last year if there was something she wanted to do, I would try my best to accompany her. I was very happy to help her fulfill her dreams!”
Dicky Reflects on Jacqueline’s Outlook
Dicky and Jacqueline had always maintained an innocent relationship. During her struggle with cancer, Dicky was deeply affected by Jacqueline’s optimistic attitude when faced with terminal disease and commended her for the positive outlook in life. During the function, he shared one of his happy memories with the public. He said, “Jacqueline left a deep impression on me during one of our dinner gatherings. At that time, she asked her husband if she could take her wig off for her friends to see. When I heard this, I almost spit out the spare rib that I was eating. I was thinking, how was it possible that a patient with a terminal illness can be so open-minded. However, I was even more surprised by her husband’s response. He said to her, of course. You can take off all your clothes if you like! They, then turned to each other and laughed, causing the rest of the group to laugh with them. I learned on that day that you can face death optimistically, as long as you’re comfortable and at ease!”
Jacqueline Was a Better Wife
In the book, Jacqueline’s husband mentioned that Jacqueline only had two requirements when she married him. One of them was to change out the old bed, as he had previously shared it with his ex-wife. He stressed that Jacqueline was a much better wife than his previous one.
