10 years ago, Hong Kong superstar Leslie Cheung jumped to his death from the 24th floor of the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong. He was only 46 years old. To family and friends, he was known as and will forever be lovingly remembered as “Gor Gor” (elder brother). And for years long after his passing, speculation was rife that he suffered from depression, brought on having to keep his personal life in the closet despite stunning success as an actor and singer.
There were also rumours that he had left a suicide note before jumping out his hotel window that 1st April 2003 day, but no letter was produced – until now.
On 31st March 2013, Leslie’s friend and manager, Florence Chan will organize a “Miss You Much Leslie” memorial concert to commemorate the 10th anniversary of his passing. She was the only person who knew about Leslie’s suicide note aka final message. She personally urged fans to be on time because she has a very important message from him to all his fans. Florence said the following:
This matter has been in my heart for ten years. Over those ten years I don’t know how to express it. One night two or three months ago, I suddenly had a vision. I then thought of how to express the message to everyone. If the message is not said this time, it might never have a chance to be told in this lifetime.
I can’t say final words, it was Gor Gor’s final message to everyone.

“Miss You Much Leslie” will be attended by family, friends, and Hong Kong artistes alike, and it will be held at the Hong Kong Coliseum. Florence Chan is currently in negotiation with the broadcast media to have it broadcasted.
