In memory of Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn is one of my favourite actor and she will always be. She is such an elegant and poised lady. Recently I read her biography called, Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit: A Son Remembers by Sean Hepburn Ferrer. From this book, I learnt more about Audrey and her world through the eyes of her only son, Sean. To the world, she is the actor but to her son, she is his mother. So now let me reminisce the movies she has starred in , Roman Holiday, My Fair Lady...

This is a beautiful love note that she has written for her family during her last remaining days. She read a letter written by a grandfather to his granddaughter that she loved it so much she created her own version. I loved it and has passed it to everyone that has touched my life. I hope you can pass this on to the people you love.


For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
We leave you a tradition with a future.
The tender loving care of human beings will never become obsolete.
People even more than things have to be restored, renewed, reclaimed, and redeemed and redeemed and redeemed.
Never throw out anybody.
Remember, if you need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
Your "good old days" are still ahead of you, may you have many of them.
