Memorial gift for David Thomas

Update posted by Wenpu Pan On Aug 11, 2018

Hi everyone, we have extended the campaign by about two weeks more than initially expected as we established more contacts with the community in National University of Singapore and TDT University in Vietnam. I would like to officially close out this campaign so that we can account for the last tranche of contributions by the evening of 15th of August 2018. Thank you all for your generosity and openness in sharing these memories and reflections.

I’d like to take the opportunity to that you all for the tremendous amount of love, admiration and respect you have shown in regards to my dad and his passing. I am overwhelmed with seeing how much he meant to so many people. In these days that follow as I come to terms with the loss It will be of comfort knowing so many of you are also feeling the same loss. My dad loved what he did. From my earliest memories he always was focused on architecture and design. It was his passion and passing on his talent and skills to other was his true calling. He will be greatly missed and a deep void has been left. Thank you all for your kind words and outpouring support. I am at a loss for words. I will never be able to fully express my gratitude. I know those Of you who have worked with him, studied with him, will now be able to carry on with his torch. Thank you all so much again.

The trip to the last city where David stayed at reminded me of a passage that I had came across before, from the last paragraphs of "The Voices of Silence" by André Malraux. "In that house of shadows where Rembrandt still plies his brush, all the illustrious Shades, from the artists of the caverns onwards, follow each movement of the trembling hand that is drafting for them a new lease of survival—or of sleep. And that hand whose waverings in the gloom are watched by ages immemorial is vibrant with one of the loftiest of the secret yet compelling testimonies to the power and the glory of being Man." David has joined the ranks of the illustrious Shades, and whether he finds a new lease of life, or of sleep, depends on the trembling hands of all his students.
