JAKARTA -- In keeping with their Chinese heritage, the many sons, daughters and grandchildren of billionaire Indonesian magnate Eka Tjipta Widjaja wore all white to the 98-year-old's funeral in February.

"For the greatest gift you've bestowed is the loving family," Eka's grandson Fuganto Widjaja told mourners in a poem composed and recited in English. "Where we shall build upon the roots you've fathered and dignified."
