Tree to be planted at University of Essex in memory of Markus Ng
March 14, 2009

The Departments of Philosophy, Government and Economics of University of Essex has supported and funded a tree to be planted in memory of Markus. A small reception will be held for Markus' friends to attend when the tree is planted on Thursday 19 March at 12 noon at Wivenhoe Park, University of Essex. It has been suggested that an English Oak tree be planted in the University grounds at Wivenhoe Park as these native trees grow very large, last for a long time and are beautiful. The location of the tree and a short piece about Markus would be recorded in the commemoration register which is held in the University Library.

Message from Markus' Family
February 5, 2009

To all of Markus' friends and extended family:

Thank you all so much for the support shown to the family and all the heart-warming tributes to Markus. The family is truly touched by all the messages from everyone who has come together to share stories about Markus and how he has touched your lives.

You must all be wondering what actually happened to Markus. The truth is until now, the cause of his death is still not certain. Postmortem findings were negative. It could be a cardiac arrhythmia (disarray of heart rhythm) and cardiac arrest.

The family is still trying very hard to cope with this sudden loss. Markus was not an ordinary son, friend and person. He was a future leader who genuinely cared for the society and the country. In fact, he had been in contact with former student leaders from the UK to nurture the next generation of political leaders for the country. Markus had truly been an exceptional young man and his passing is a great loss to the family, his friends and the country.

May he rest in peace and the memory of him live on forever.
