I knew Hui since the summer of 2014, shortly after I joined SAS. I had consulted her about technical questions related to one of our products. She was super nice and wise. We enjoyed some yoga classes and lunch breaks together. We talked about work, life and kids.
I was shocked to be informed that she had been fighting with lung cancer until she had to take medical leave in the fall of 2017. A few colleagues and I visited her from time to time. She was always calm and optimistic. I was grateful that Hui and Xuejun's trust to let me knowing their situation and difficulties. I was thankful that a lot of colleagues, friends and neighbors had lend their hands to help with their family, especially from March, 2018.
It was a long battle but Hui and Xuejun always had the courage and confidence. It was a painful journey but Hui and Xuejun always had hope and dream. It was a struggling life but Hui and Xuejun did their best to their two beautiful daughters, their loving parents and their caring friends.
The last conversation with Hui was last Wednesday. Through the big windows of the hospital unit, we watched the sunset dyed the sky into warm orange and pink. We told her that the spring was here and flowers started blooming. Hui was peace and clear. She asked me if I planted the seedlings in the garden. Not yet, Hui. But soon. Kids are our seedlings. They are going to grow as healthy and happy as you wished. Hope is our seedling. It is carried on with your love.
May your heart and soul find peace and comfort.

I know Hui since we went to Duke together. But our friendship really get deep when we moved back to NC in 2011. Hui is always cherish and funny. She is kind and honest. She is the best friend you can ask for. The last time I saw her, was about a month ago in the hospital. It was Chinese New Year and I was in a rush back to attend Church's activities. If I knew it was the last time I would ever see her, I would have chosen to stay. Her body was weak at that time but her will and spirit was strong. Her eyes still has the glory as when she was healthy. She didn't talk to much because of the pain but I can surely read a lot from her eyes. I couldn't imagine the pain and struggle she has been through in the last couple of years, and she was so brave and strong to go through all the treatments and recovery. She is surely be missed and remembered by us through her smiles and voices. Now she has gone to somewhere there is no pain and no disease. We know you are always up there watching us. We will miss you forever.
