I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Aunt Shu. My fondest memories of Aunt Shu are when she took care of me for a period of time while my dad, Errol, was in the hospital. Although I felt out-of-sorts due to the circumstances, she made me feel welcomed and took great care of me! Both she and Uncle Sam left us beautiful examples of how to be kind and caring individuals. I look forward to seeing them again. (John 5:28 & 29) Dearest cousins, you will all be in my thoughts and prayers. Much Love, Kimberly

My fondest memorie of Aunt Shu is her teaching me how to sew. She's taught me how to do an inner stitch on a jacket I was making for school and it turned out beautiful. But we always new she was there for us when ever we needed her just a block away. All the memories and visits to her and Uncle Sam's eating figs or kumquats in the back yard or just listening to music with her. She will surely be miss . I will always remember her laugh ( just a little snicker) So sorry for you guys loss, you will be in my prayers and thoughts in these coming days. Sincerely Leann
