You and I were inseparable in our 20’s, we had little money but rich in our unique friendship , so spending time with you every day was the best time of my life. My heart feels heavy because I’m not just losing a friend but I’m losing a part of my heart and my soul. I hope that I will get to see you in my dreams and that we get to play one last volleyball game together or a last tennis match then I get to hug you and wave goodbye to you as you’re walking back to heaven. Let’s make it happen and come see me in my dream. I’ll always miss you and be there for your family - infinite love...Nhon

We were HS friends. Basketball was our passion... much envious of your tenacity on the court. I was not as cool to hang around much with you guys off the court. Then I moved away to Austin in 1981. Being an ass that I was, and my wife can definitely attest to it, I failed to keep in touch with any of my guys I grew up with. I got in touch with the guys in 2009 and met you at a reunion over Quan’s home. An ass does not has much of a memory, that precisely make him who he is. But your infectious smiles and warm demeanor were there, as I’ve then deja vu-ed, what a cool guy you are. Still no specific memory, just an overwhelming emotional and spiritual affinity. My friend, you are missed.

My dearest Thiên,
Today is our chance to say thank you for the way you brightened our lives. Chi feel cheated that you left us so young and yet grateful that you came along at all. Only now, we truly appreciate what we are without you.
You represent the essence of unselfish love and unconditional passion. Chi will remember always how generous and compassionate you are toward life and your circle of loved ones. The attention and time you freely gave to Chi, when I need it from you the most, has and will be immortalized in my memory of you.
Chi won't say farewell yet because we have 1 more day with you.. Be well my dear brother! Take good care of yourself and of Linh, Natalie and Nicholas <3.

Until we meet again, much love, hugs and kisses.
Chi Va

My Dear Friend,
Even though we haven’t seen much of each other over the years, I will always treasure our friendship, good times and laughter. I will mostly treasure your “goldfish” nickname for me. Rest In Peace you sweet soul. The heavens have gained a very special angel. Until we meet again, I will always remember this wonderful smile.

Brother Thien, you’re another older brother to me and to my entire family...we shared a lot of great memories through the years all the way back from when we first came to Houston in 1977 and you were one of the first to befriend us and made us feel welcomed in a new city. Sports were our thing brother! It was a blast living with you and Cồ in Austin right after I graduated and you guys were working there. It was fun seeing you a few weeks ago during one of our group lunches. You’re a good man and I’m proud to say that I’ve gotten to know you. Wishing you eternal peace and fun and all the sports you can play and watch!!! From me and from my entire family... We love you brother Thien.

Your little brother Van.

Hi daddy, I miss you. I remember all the times we used to count buses when I was little. I’ll never forget it. I will always talk to you every night. I miss you a lot. We are always going to talk about the Astros together and I’ll always tell you where we go to eat because I know you would want to come with us. I love you Daddy.
