GEORGE TOWN: Friends and family of Choi Hon Ming, who was hit by a stray bullet hit him in a shooting along Lim Chong Eu Expressway on Thursday, bid farewell to him at the Batu Gantong crematorium, here.
Choi's wife, Sun Siew Chin, 32, in her eulogy described him as a wonderful man and expressed her pain at having to bid goodbye in such manner.
"I just want you to know that I love you very much and may you be an angel up there. You are a good person and I am thankful for having you in my life," she said.
Earlier before his cremation, Choi's fellow entertainer friends dressed as clowns and released 32 balloons into the air.
Loey Lew who is the owner of Parteeboo where the deceased had built his career as a clown said it was still hard for her to accept Choi's death.
"His stuff is still in our office and it is hard for us to accept that he will no longer be with us. May you rest in peace my dear friend. You will surely be missed," she said.
Some 100 people attended the funeral.
Choi was cremated at 11.40am.
Datuk Ong Teik Kwang, 32, who was allegedly shot by his bodyguard in the incident on Thursday, was also laid to rest in Relau.
A large number of people attended the funeral at Khoo Kongsi funeral parlour where several lorries of flowers and tiger floor mats were seen.
Three people were shot dead while four others, including RTM cameraman, Muhammad Amirul Amin Amir, 27, were injured in Thursday's shooting.
