I've know Mai as long as I can remember through her son Mathew. Mai always greeted an annoying child at her front door looking to play video games with her son, with a smile. Mai took it upon herself to look out for her children's friends with the daily " Don't forget your jacket!!" even in summer.
Patient and understanding when the neighborhood kids took over her kitchen table to slay dragons and explore caves in D & D games. She would watch over us and provide home made egg rolls to keep us going.
Whenever I would call looking for Mat and Mai would answer I found myself on a 10-15 minute phone call. Mai would always ask how was school, my grades, girls and more. She took it upon her self to look out for her children's friends as if they were her own.
Growing up in our community I would often accompany my mother to the grocers and we would run into Mai at the store. She would always take the time to stop and say hello and share a compliment with our parents about all Mat's friends.
Mai was at times a mother to all her children's friends, encouraging when needed and chastising when deserved.
She was a great part of my upbringing helping to shape not only her children but their friends as well.
I will always remember her fondly. She will be missed.
