"I can't believe that it has been three years since you left us. I remember vividly that I got to hold your right hand for a long time before you passed. I had you held Dad's rosary in your hand as well and sang many soothing beautiful Catholic songs with you. You were so brave and in peace even in your last hours. I know you are with our God because you were a good son, brother, husband, friend,father, grandfather, and last but not least, a good Catholic. Love you always,  em Mai Huong."

"Remembering you on your birthday.  You are missed.  My mom will always treasure the quality time she had with her lunch buddies -- dear brother and sister-in-law; the stories they told, and the laughter they shared. Good to know you are at peace. In loving memory, chau P Anh."

"Today would have been my parents' 45th year wedding anniversay.  I woke up so deeply sad that I won't be able to wish them another 45+ years.  Right about now my dad would have taken my mom to Pechanga Casino because that is where they would have spent their special day.  I felt a deeper pain for my mom as she really loved him and today is a painful reminder that he is not here with us.  My prayer is that Dad continues to watch over our family from above.  I love you, Dad.  Happy anniversary."

"Dear anh Ha,
You turned 76 today. So you were born in July like Dad and a. Hao. Everyone miss you and continue to pray for you. I miss your gentle but still quite funny jokes. You did have a good sense of humor and together with many other virtues that I love and respect. I am still so sorry that you had to leave us so soon. But you did accept God's will courageously and obediently throughout the whole ordeal and especially at the end. I love you, miss you, and always pray for you.  Em, Mai Huong."

"Happy Birthday to my daddy. I love you and feel lucky to be able to see you in my dreams from time to time. It helps me and lessens the pain of missing you to see you happy and my dreams.

I talk to you every day, I pray for you every night. I love you endlessly."

"Today is my dad's 75th birthday.  If he were here he would not want us to make a fuss about it, but secretly I know he really enjoyed it when we would come to visit and bring him an ice-cream cake.  We would take him out to dinner at one of his favorite restaurants, Seafood World.  But  last year, we went to Black Angus and he had steak, shrimp, and his favorite - baked potato.  It was at this dinner that he shared with us he had passed his DMV test and they were going to renew his license.  We were hoping they wouldn't...but it was so typical of my dad to not rely on anyone else to drive him around; he was SO happy.  You should see the last photo on his driver license; he had the biggest smile!

If I could have one wish today, it would be to see my dad, give him a big hug, a kiss on his cheek, and to say how much I love him and miss him.  So here is a shout out to heaven -  Happy birthday, Dad!  I love you and miss you very much and I want to wish you a very happy birthday!"

Until we meet again, God willing..."

"I was blessed to have had a close relationship with you, Dad.  In many ways, we were very much alike.  We had our differences but I was always able to talk to you about many things.  You've taught me about the importance of family and sacrifices and when you shared stories of your life and of your family, I was able to get a glimpse of what life was like in Vietnam.  I will forever miss you and there are days when I wish I could just pick up the phone and talk to you, share a joke with you, tell you what your grandkids did/say that day, or the "Did you see or hear that report on TV or the radio?"

I will always love you, Dad.  Until we meet again ..."

"I love you dad. I think about you every single day and you will always be the man that I aspire to be. I am praying for you, and hope that you are praying for us all as well.

One of my fondest memories of our time together is when we went to the LA Auto Show when I was younger. We did not have much money, but you nevertheless bought a hotdog and soda... and we shared it. Because you were so loving, you allowed me to eat most of the hotdog and you finished off whatever was left.  This is just one example of how much you loved me, and how willing you were to put me first, ahead of yourself.

I love you so much dad... but know that you are in a better place."
