Uncle John, my dear Kai Yeh,
I miss you so much. It has been a month, and I thought I am finally ready to sign this guest book, but I still want to cry. Sorry I am late.
I always remember last time we went to the Caribbean together, you played with Adrian on the boat, you bought him a nice cap, you looked great in your tux...
You will always be in our hearts. We pray to God to take good care of you and keep you company, so you won't feel lonely there. We will meet again one day. Love you always...

I was shock to learn of the passing of my old friend for nearly half a century. My sympathy and condolences to the family, especially to Diana, also an old friend of nearly half a century. I still remember the happy and sweet day of his wedding in Boston. My prayers will always be with John and his family. Take care everyone.
