His daughter recalled that Stanley Ho had attached great importance to family education and reminded his children that "everything from society shall be spent for society".

She said he "cherished the people of Hong Kong".

Pansy Ho also said her father would always stay in the heart of the family while they would go all-out to continue his legacy, fulfilling the family's social responsibilities.
