"He was the one who did the house chores; and whenever I worked late, he would call me. He was a very caring son, never made us worry. Unfortunately, he has left us..." recalled 62-year old Lee Bing Kun, who sobbed quietly, not knowing how to express the pain of his son's demise. At the Tzu Chi Scholarship Presentation Ceremony, Tzu Chi presented the "Filial Piety Award" to the late Lee Ming Hoe for his filial goodness.
