You are a remarkable person who helped me when I first arrived in America. Took care of me when I was learning about American culture, made sure to teach me about our community's culture. We hope that where you are, that you are in a better place than all of us. As I write this I could not hold back my tears, but, we wish that you are going to some place better even better than before.
