It is heartbreaking to watch, more so for his grieving family. His mother has released a statement through Godfrey Gao’s agency to ask everyone to stop sharing text and photos from that day.
Full translation as follows: During this time, his family has deeply felt everyone’s concern and love, everyone can bid their final goodbye to Godfrey on the 15th. We sincerely hope that during this time, everyone can give their warm blessings; please stop sharing the saddening text and photos of Godfrey from that day, please give his family some space to sort out their emotions!
