My memory of Suns Shengkun Hung
I got to know Shengkun these last 40 years. He was always warm and caring.
I wish I've met him earlier, for we were in the same profession, except he was much more successful.
We compared notes occasionally, but never compete with each other, as though we were brothers. He always was ready to lend a helping hand whenever I needed one.
He and Sophine are so kind & generous. Every time my wife, Leonora and I went out with them for a fine dining, they always grabbed the bill and won't let us pay for it.
We will miss him dearly . Our deepest condolence to Sophine and every member in his family.
