BUKIT MERTAJAM (Bernama): The ashes of Moey Yun Peng, whose sports utility vehicle (SUV) plunged into the sea at Penang Bridge in a collision with another car early last Sunday (Jan 20), was placed in the columbarium at the Berapit Chinese cemetery here.
 
Moey' remains had arrived at the burial ground about 11.30am on Thursday (Jan 24) for the religious rites and brought to the crematorium about 15 minutes later.
 
It was an atmosphere of deep grief at the crematorium as Moey's remains were then placed in the incinerator, watched by his family members and friends, who shed tears and called out his name.
 
The incineration took about two hours before his ashes were kept at the columbarium.
 
Earlier, about 200 of Moey's family members and friends were at his family home in Taman Kempas, Butterworth for the religious rites and to pay him their last respects. - Bernama
