Dear Friends,

As we navigate through these challenging times, coming to terms with the world without our beloved Chuck, it's important to remember the profound impact he had on each of us. Chuck's legacy is filled with moments of kindness, laughter, and unforgettable memories that continue to inspire and comfort us.

We cordially invite you to join us on May 15, 2024, from 3-6 PM at the Stanford Arrillaga Alumni Center, to celebrate Chuck’s life. The gathering will highlight Chuck’s significant scientific contributions and visions. It will also be a time for you to share your stories and interactions with Chuck, as we reminisce about the good times spent together and honor the memory of a remarkable person who made every moment count.

Please use this link to let us know if you'll be able to join us in person.  If you'd prefer to attend virtually, we're also arranging a Zoom option—If you are interested in joining virtually, please RSVP “No” and when prompted provide your email address so we can send you the link directly.

We're truly looking forward to sharing this special occasion with you, hearing your cherished memories of Chuck, and celebrating his incredible life together.

Warm regards,
Wan-Jin & The Chan family
