Our thoughts and prayers are with the Nguyen family. We are so sorry to hear this very sad news. Shihan will forever be in our hearts and he will be missed dearly. Phillip, we are very sorry for your loss, please send our condolences to your mom. There are so many memories we have with Shihan and we will treasure every single moment. The classes at the church, the teachings in the back yard, the trips to New York where he made so many friends and the very special place you had in our family. Rest in peace Shihan, until we meet again.

With love,
The Sapp Family
