Malaysian YouTuber Qiu Wen (秋雯) recently lost her younger brother Chris Teng (張和勛) to a car accident on 15th June. This year, the YouTuber spent Father’s Day mourning her late father and brother.
On 21st June, Qiu Wen posted a few photos of her father and a family photo on Instagram. She included a message to her late brother in the caption.
The local YouTuber has been coming to terms with the recent loss of her brother. His funeral, which took place last week, ended a day before Father’s Day. Previously, Qiu Wen had not spoken about her brother since his passing. She only mourned him via pictures and videos. However, as her family spent this year’s Father’s Day with one missing member, she wrote a message to both her father and her brother who are now together.
“My younger brother went to see my dad first,” she wrote. “My older brother said, wait for our family reunion.” She thanked her father and brother for journeying with her in life. “It made me happy to have you around,” she said. Qiu Wen promised to be stronger now as they were no longer here for her to rely on. “Happy Father’s Day, dad,” she wished. “You left us with the best you could give. You must be free and happy now. You don’t have to work hard to support us (anymore).”
Friends and fans of the YouTuber left messages in the comments to comfort and cheer her up. Many sent hearts to show their love for her while others encouraged her with messages like, “Don’t be sad, cheer up. You have to (keep) moving forward and not look back.”
Qiu Wen’s brother may have passed young, but it is clear from the photos she posted that she cherishes the time spent with him. We wish her the best as she continues moving forward in life.
