My deepest sympathies on your loss to the entire Chheng family. I have been friends with Bo since the second grade and even though I did not personally know his mother, Kien, you could tell her influence helped to shape the awesome person Bo is. Having lost a mother recently, I know the heartache you are going through, but take comfort in the memories of this special woman and her entire family.
