On May 17, 2011, a tragic accident ever so suddenly took away our pride and joy.  We have created this memorial website to remember and honor Chris.

Our lives have forever changed by Chris' passing and our hearts are broken into pieces.  

We appreciate so much for everybody's prayer and support.  Our family will stay strong and get through this tragedy.  Please browse through this site and leave any memory you may want to share.

Christopher, Mommy, Daddy and Eric miss you so much.  We will reunite in heaven one day.  Until we meet again, bless all of your friends and family on earth, our angel...

亲爱的宝贝Chris:你好吗?很久没有和您聊天,对不起!因为奶奶的电脑出了问题,这次您爸爸回来纽约,帮我修理一番,才可以恢复工作,奶奶是电脑白痴,常常因为“多手”,把电脑弄坏了,就给你爸爸增加麻烦,明天是你妈妈的生日,你爸爸忙于工作身在上海,你妈妈说喜欢吃奶奶做的土豆沙拉,所以我们会在家中午餐,Eric明天可以抽空来一起为你妈妈庆祝,我的宝贝!每次我们聚在一起,就无比的想念公公和您!还是那么的心痛!谢谢您陪伴公公,明天是复活节!祝你和公公复活节快乐!奶奶要去准备明天的午餐了,下次再聊!Love You! Miss You!

Dear Chris,
Summer is here and it brings back my fond memories of your family coming to enjoy annual BBQ dinner at our home but both you and GonGon have since left us. The only comfort is that you are now by God side and it will be our future permanent home as well.
We love you and miss you nevertheless!

Dear Chris,

Five years has passed since you left yet we all miss your presence, especially during any events such as birthdays of family members, holidays as well as the recent Eric's college graduation ceremony. 
The only comfort is knowing that you are now with Gon Gon by God's side and
surrounded by angels!

Hey Buddy:

Five years!! Can't believe it!!

Great news! Eric graduated from Rutgers and even Obama came to give the commencement speech. We are all so proud of him and hope he will find a good job. 

Miss you everyday. Hope you are having fun up there with Gongon, Grandpa Hans and all others you love. We will come to see you next week. Love you so much!!!

Today marked a milestone for me: Eric went to Woodside by himself and even took Neinei shopping for a new sofa. I know this may not be seen as a big deal but was very emotional for me. Thinking about those thousands of trips to Woodside when you guys were kids......

He even had a "Big Bowl Noodle" in honor of Gongon's birthday. Great job!!

Love you and miss you,

Dad from Shanghai

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

You are 22 today!  How time flies.  We miss you so very much everyday.  Hope you are doing great up there.

So many tragedies this past year.  Your childhood friend Miles lost his life in a car accident.  Eric's friend Paul Kim has also left us.  So young and so sudden.  Our prayers and thoughts are with their families.

Eric is doing great at school.  He got elected as the Treasurer of his fraternity.  One more year and he will be graduated.

Gon Gon's health is not we would liked to see.  Neinei is working so hard to take care of him.  We hope he gets better soon.

Jonathan will be going to college next year.  He grew so big and tall. 

Mom and I are doing well.  We spent half a year apart but things are going well.  I hope she can come visit me in Shanghai next year.

I am still staying at Room 908, where I got the news and spent the absolute worst day in my life there.  My office is still there so I can feel your presence all the time.

Minx is doing well too.  He misses you very much also.

Happy birthday, our boy!  We will light a candle next Saturday.  Rest in peace!

Happy birthday, Chris from Aunties Dolly and Bessie

As much as we all miss Chris' presence we are comforted knowing that he must be surrounded now by Angels holding lit-up candles and singing Happy Birthday while God and Jesus are nodding and smiling at him fondly.

Chris is a privileged young man whose schoolmates, friends and relatives not only miss him but will always retain abundant love for him.
