I remember well being introduced to this fine man. Pong and his family and friends who came together to the United States were so excited, grateful and thankful to God and all who welcomed them here. Pong worked so hard to become a US citizen. That was his ultimate goal, to become a citizen and a part of this great nation. He always had a smile on his face. Willing to help anyone in any way. God bless Pong and his family! You will be missed.
