Yen Yen,

I still can not believe you are gone. I have so many memories from when David and I were kids at the Canton Restaurant. I remember the garden in the back of the restaurant and how my cousins and I would play hide and seek or tag and you always let us. You let us grab fruit that was suppose to be for the cocktails, even though we were suppose to take any. So many years of smiles and love. Family was always important to you, no matter what. We will all miss you so much.


Your grand-daughter Jen and great grand-daughter Jasmine
