As we reminisce, we find ourselves celebrating our Mom’s beautiful spirit. She encouraged and accepted us. Prayed for our successes and failures. Showed us what it meant to be a mother and a friend. Her compassion and generosity taught us the meaning of love.
Special thank you to friends, neighbors, St. Ann’s Church, Luk Tung Society and Arcadia Retirement who provided her with loving spiritual, emotional and physical support.
