SINGAPORE: Hundreds turned up for the funeral of the two brothers — Nigel and Donavan Yap — to bid their final farewell.

The brothers were killed in a road accident in Tampines on Monday.

A prayer service was held at the void deck of the family’s home.

Besides family and friends, many strangers also turned up to pay their respects.

After prayers, two hearses carrying the coffins of 13—year—old Nigel and his seven—year—old brother Donavan left for Mandai Crematorium.

Outside the funeral hall, military men lined up to show their support for the boys’ father, who is an SAF warrant officer.
