Great Grand Father Chan Kwong Kuok and Great Grand Mother Lee Ngin Kiew. Great Grand Father came to Sarawak a few times from aged 33. He left Great Grand Mother at home for a few years at a time. She had to take care of the family home and the ancestor tablets. Great Grand Mother was a grass widow, a woman whose husband had gone else where for work. At that time, the women did not travel with the men.

My mother was a grass widow twice. each time when Dad went to Singapore and London for education.
Such amicable women.
