"Happy B-Day Chris !!!

Me , Mary , and my Mom and Dad wish you were still there with us so we can still have those fun gatherings during dim-sum time , Thanksgiving , X-Mas , Chinese New Year , and at our place in Westchester County's Scarsdale , or should I say in a more fancy name ,, The Principality Of Scarsdalia !!
Yeah , I remember you loved Scarsdale. Nice big Tudor houses and peaceful trees.
Have to admit all those fun gatherings are not quite the same ever since you left planet earth for the heavens.
Maybe you secretly got a new job at NASA in your afterlife staying up forever on the moon like Neil Armstrong is right now ?????
Only JOKING !!
I bet you miss your Grandma Marjorie's SAVORY YUMMY cooking so bad.
My all time favorite is her delicious home-made salad with chopped potato , eggs , ham , apple , and mayonnaise.
Always my favorite !!!!!!!
Can't wait to taste it again during X-Mas !!
Well ,, we will be thinking of both you and Grandpa Yang when we have Grandma Marjorie's cozy Holiday meal gathering at her place.

With much love and respect from the Ping Family

- Jenny , Mary , Ling , and Albert"
