I miss Lucy Tan and still cannot believe she is gone. Head of the PeaceConnect Senior Activity Centre, the 72-year-old who behaved decades younger, was one of my closest partners in service. The magnet and live wire of the Beach Road-North Bridge Rd rental housing cluster, she ably led a team of dedicated social service folks to serve the thousands of elderly poor here. She guided and supported me protectively since the first day I became an MP in this estate. She defended me without fear whenever she saw anything that was unjust or untrue. Her high-energy no-nonsense yet compassionate style made her a trusted beacon to so many residents, donors, volunteers and agencies. A devout Christian, Lucy has returned home to a better place. But she will be dearly missed by so many of us who have been deeply impacted because of who she was and what she did. Goodbye Lucy. Thank you and hugs forever. #wonderwoman
