We shared many great times in our 40+ years of friendship and were so lucky that you were a part of our lives. We will miss our luncheons and great world problem solving talks! Condolences to Ross, Ryan and Sarah and to all your siblings and their families. You were a beautiful soul taken too early. We will miss you and will continue to set a plate for you at all of our family gatherings.

I am so sorry to hear about your death, San. My heartfelt condolences to your family. I was pleased to see you and your sister at the school reunion in Wetaskiwin. You never changed a bit. I fondly remember all the times when we were young children that I spent at your house, learning to say your names in chinese, eating different foods (especially the dried ginger that I can never find in a store), and your grandmother trying to teach me how to write calligraphy, which was a hopeless cause. May you rest in peace.
