Dear Mr. Chang,
It has been already 10 years since you transitioned to a higher spiritual realm. I just want to express my sincere gratitude and love to you for your kindness you have given to me while you were in this phenomenal world. My heartfelt appreciation towards you never fades away. Around your birthday this year I was trotting around the city of Toronto for many medical/dental check ups with various physical tests and scans that became necessary because I neglected to care for my health while I was in the northern Ontario for 20 months during the pandemic. Although I didn't post my message to celebrate your birthday I was thinking of you. Thank you again for all you have done for me. Wishing you all the happiness and peace in the spiritual world.
Someday I hope I can meet you there again.
With sincere gratitude from Shizuko

Dear Mr. Chang,
Time flies so fast. It's been already 9 years since I had a cup of tea with you at your home. You embraced everyone who came close to you with a kind and warm heart. Soon after my visit, I received the sad news of your transition to the spiritual world. I was very sad to hear about it
I am very sure that you are happy up there together with all those people you love. I know that you can look down on this earthly world and send your love and guidance to all of your family and friends.
I would like to send you my heartfelt gratitude and sincere love for everything you have done for me and my family.
With all my heart, Shizuko and family.

Today is the 9th anniversary of my Dad's passing. He loved the Canadian autumn colors and spring blossoms and taught me to appreciate their beauty and being the proud Canadian that he was and I am. He inspired me with his creativity and knowledge. He taught me to be thoughtful and kind. For our many moments together - watching news of the world and discussing the ideals of freedom of the U.S., our Chinese heritage, listening to classical music, planning the next trip, finding the most interesting restaurants, dreaming of a better world, and brought us to a better life! Best Dad ever! I love you and miss you!

Happy 101st Birthday, Mr. Chang,

Whenever I think of you, my heart is filled with deep gratitude.
I hope you are soring the spiritual world freely with Mrs. Chang who was so kind to me also. See you someday when I graduate this earthly world.
With sincere gratitude and love.
Shizuko

It’s Saturday though and eight years on. He slipped away just a week and a half after Thanksgiving at Howard’s. How life changed for us. I’d like to think his spirit is free to roam the corners of the world he missed in this life. He regretted not spending an extra day in Strasbourg. All those extra days. I remember Dad taking us to the movie “If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium”. This must be Strasbourg then. Judy and I were far too young in 1970! Was censorship more lax in those days? I saw “Cleopatra” at seven, “Romeo and Juliet” at 12, and “Sleuth” at 16! All because Dad wanted to go and dragged his two eldest along! The last film we watched together was “À bout de Souffle” on TV with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg. He couldn’t take his eyes off the screen though he had seen it before. Mom was mesmerized by 30s classics, Dad hip French New Wave. He was always a modern man. A forward thinker. I can imagine him driving some vintage Renault at top speed through his beloved cosmos of grand and infinite possibilities, singing “Sous les Toits de Paris”!

I miss you, Dad, but smile at every memory.

Dear Dad, you've been gone for five years - autumn day like today. I want to show you the changing colors and the Hudson and the reservoir and take you to a new Chinese restaurant in town just like when you and Mom visited in 2006. As I remember your joy and delight in the beauty of nature and all things new, you are with me. I thank you for teaching me to love and to see the wonders of the world. I love you forever and always and you are forever and always with me.

Dad, today marks five years that you've been gone. A Wednesday like today. Five years. First we counted the days, then the months, and now the years. I want to tell you that Chinese archeologists have found evidence that the Ancient Greeks might have been in China during the building of the terracotta warriors. They might have had a hand in building the life-like statues. At first, I was a bit miffed that even this they couldn't give the Chinese. But then, I thought how you would react, fascinated by the possibilities of two great civilizations having such early contact, and undoubtedly, the Greeks took away something as well that influenced their art. You'll like this: we and all life came from stardust, the energy from stars. And now you have returned to the source. But a part of you, a spark, a light, a dust of energy, is in me looking out at this world with wonder. I love you and miss you every day.

Dad, HJ got a job with an American company that was founded by a Taiwanese, who went to the National Chiao Tung University. I know it's not Hitotsubashi but. :) HJ wishes he could tell you. We both miss you so. But you know. Sorry for missing the date. We were in Sarasota for our anniversary; yes we made it. I thought of you all week. Love you. Christmas coming soon & Auld Lang Syne.

Dad, I love you forever and always. I cannot believe it's been two years. It feels like so long that I haven't spoken to you. I miss our daily calls on Skype. I miss your wisdom and your stories. I miss every moment with you, Dad. Believe it or not I learned to use File Finder from you. You'll laugh. It was a pleasure and an honour to be your daughter.

From Andrew (part II)
Your Dad, in particular, I always thought personified and epitomized the greatest aspects of Chinese culture: courtesy, graciousness, respect, and intellect. I remember him inviting me to sit in his leather chair, put on his headphones, and listen to his classical music. It wasn't for the music, he pointed out, but to achieve a state of being.

From Andrew (part I)

I first met your parents 30 years ago. Over the years any time I showed up at their door they treated me like a member of the family, and so I felt much that way about them, and feel a personal loss. I admired both your Mom and Dad.

Thank you so very much for all the things you have done for me.

41 years ago you hired me to work for the Ontario Pavilion atExpo '70 in Japan as your secretary.

Among many applicants, you gave me the position because you thought I was financially supporting my old parents back in my home town. 

This type of thoughtfulness permeated in your actions through out your life. I'm so grateful to you

My dad was an incredible man, and the best grandfather ever. Our kids, Alex and Erik, will miss him incredibly, as will we. Dad, we love you. Please be well with mom and popo, and watch your loving family from above, wherever the 3 of you travel.

Akong, Kung Po, Cocoon, My little Yoda, I love you very much. I will miss bringing obscure topics of interest to you and hearing you dissect them and inform me of whatever socio-political history they have. I wish I could have sopped up all the knowledge you laid unto me...<3 u

An unforgettable man; an inspiration to all; a wonderful father and grandfather. I loved his curiosity, points of view and knowledge. I loved watching the kids interact with him and he with them. I loved everything about him and he'll always be in my heart.
