Dear Ong,

I miss you and wish you didn’t have to go so soon. I still wanted to have more time to make memories with you since I didn’t see you as often. I miss the days when you used to trip me and pretend you didn’t do it. I miss when you would grab me by my legs and tickle me until I couldn’t breathe. You left so sudden and it broke my heart but I’m glad you’re in a better place now. I wish I could just see you one more time, but I’ll see you again one day.

Love you and miss you always,
Teresa

Dear Ong,

I still to this day can’t grab on to the fact that you aren’t with us anymore.. the memories we had are still very clear in my thoughts. I miss every single moment with you especially times when you knew how stressed I was and you still joked around with me to keep my back up on my toes. I learned greatly from you. I honestly learned a lot from you, I know you are up there right now watching over each and every one of us. I knew you wanted me to be the best I can be especially since I’m your oldest grandson, you told me to be the greatest role model for my younger cousins, but I’ve been struggling to do so. It hurts still to accept the fact that you are not here but you will still be my motivation to be the best I can be and never giving up. I’m going to continue making you proud as you stand behind me picking me up when i fall..
I wished I can go back to when you asked about me, I wished i called more often, and I wished I would of seen you before you went to Heaven.. those are gonna be my biggest regrets in my life. And for that i hate myself for not attending more, or even just taking a time to call more often.. I regret all of that greatly. I wish I can apologize to you in person.. but I know you don’t want me to think that way. I will cherish every single memory I have with you. I know I’ll be a grandpa one day and I’ll make sure to demand my grandkids to massage my legs and shoulders for you like you did and making them kneel when they got in trouble like you did for me when I was younger.. I remember I was a big headache to you back then but you still put up with me.. but I’m glad to know you aren’t in pain anymore and in a way better place.

Thank you for being the best grandpa anyone can ask for. I will always have a place for you in my heart and I will always love you. Most importantly I will make sure I make you proud and that’s a promise I will keep forever.

I miss you Gramps.. until we meet again.

Your grandson,
Khang

Ong,

I am so thankful to have you as my grandpa. I will cherish every moment I had with you. I wish we could continue to make memories and share laughters. You were always making jokes about anything and everything especially during times to be serious. You joked so much that every night I thought to myself, "Alright Ong, that’s enough joking. You can stop this prank now. Come home already." But this time, it's real. It's not a joke.

You are in a better place now. You're no longer in pain. You can finally rest. I will continue to work hard and make you proud.

Until we meet again, Ong. I love and miss you.

Your granddaughter,

Dear Ong,

Every moment I had with you was filled with joy or fear. Fear that you’d tickle me again, fear that you’d actually chop off my legs if they were aching, fear that you would rub your beard on my arm and it would kind of burn, and fear that you’d leave us. I knew the tickles and beard rubs were coming soon, but you leaving us this soon caught me off guard. My last memory with you was 7 weeks ago when it was just me and you and I was massaging your legs and you were asking me about college and if I was happy. In that moment I was so happy because I got to spend time with you. My heart hurts knowing that I can’t have anymore time with you, but you’ll always have a place in my heart. I miss you and love you so much everyday. I hope you’re happy and cracking jokes as always.

Love forever & always,
Tiffany (Nimini)

Bac Dan,
Most of my childhood memories were spent at your house with your daughters Huyen and Tam . You use to chase us out of your house because it was too late and wanted us to go home . We still showed right back up years after years. And you still welcomed and fed us ! Thank you for feeding us but also thank you for raising some amazing kids that are caring and loving that I still call my true friends. Rest easy Bac Dan . ♥️

Dear Ong,

The memories we made will forever hold a special place in my heart. I just wished I could’ve talked to you one last time before you left. At least you aren’t suffering anymore with pain. You’re in a better place now, watching over your family. I’ll continue working hard to make you proud. I’ll make sure to tell my future children of all the memories I made with their great grandpa. Then one day, I’ll become a grandpa. I’ll ask my grandchildren to massage my legs like you did. I’ll ask my grandchildren to help me fill the water gallons like you did. I’ll bite my grandchildren legs and say it taste like chicken like you did.

Thank you for being the best grandpa. I will miss you very much. I will never forget you. Until we meet again...

Love,
Your Grandson
Vinson

Dad-in-law
I met you 20 years ago not knowing what I’ll find. I was young and scare, but you made me feel right at home after a few frightening moments 😉. Thank you for letting me into your family. Your daughter and granddaughters will miss you a lot, but you have my word I will take care of them. That Wednesday afternoon god called you to be with him on his side. You’re now by his side resting and in good hands in heaven. Find my dad and say hello to him for me. I miss you both, you guys were great warriors and I know you both will watch over us. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone part of us went with you. Not saying bye forever, but bye until we meet again!!
