ForeverMissed
Tributes

七七

今天早上起床后,眼泪开始止不住的流,脑海里浮现着那最后七天的情景。三月二日得到医院病危通知,儿子奂奂问医生,爸爸还有多少时间,医生的回答,大约一周。随即我开始安排你回家。马上找人将客厅的家具移开,腾出空间安放医院的病床,打电话给你的好朋友刘壮一和周晨。周晨得知消息,在电话那头失声痛哭。我连夜安排好24小时居家护理和女儿聆聆回家的飞机。

星期三,三月三日下午,医院接到通知各项医疗设备在家中都已经安置完毕后,办理了你出院的手续。医护车到达家里时,壮一和周晨一起帮着抬着你从车上转到病床上。我问你感觉如何,你第一句的回答是“Lousy”(不好)。我问“怎么了”,你说你等了一天一夜我都没有来接你回家。我听了即心疼又想笑,心疼你一直念着回家,笑你糊涂,医院不放行,我又怎能接你回家。当天晚上护理换掉你医院穿回来的衣服,擦洗完,换上你平日的衣服,你很满意的说你的尊严回来了,不再像医院里的病人。

儿子奂奂征求我的同意,带着他交往了四个月的女朋友回来,让爸爸见见她。见面后我们都好奇的问你,评价如何。你风趣的说,没有看清楚,因为都戴着口罩。隔天晚餐时我提议拍张不戴口罩的照片,问你这回看清楚了吧?你说还是没有看见,因为拍照时我们都站立在你的身后。我用iPad给你看照片,你才看清楚了奂奂女朋友的相貌。她个子高高的,长的漂亮贤惠。

你从医院回来的头几天,精神很不错,讲话的声音很有力,每天坐着轮椅,跟我们大家一起吃饭和聊天,喝茶时你讲究用全套的茶具,慢慢品。还叫我给你中药泡脚。我们大家都认为你会好起来,要庆平医生来看你,也认为你比几天前在医院ICU的情况大为好转。三月五日星期五万小明带着儿子回波士顿,临行时你说下次再见,一点点都没有意识到自己病情的危险。我一直不忍心告知你医生的诊断。三月六日晚你兴致来了,说要喝点我酿的甜酒,壮一和周晨陪着你一起喝。三月七日一早小付来家烧了几个她拿手的好菜,想你多吃一口。一年多来你腹腔和胸腔积水,吃的很少,睡眠也不好。看着你日渐消瘦的身躯,看着你被病痛折磨,很心疼也很无助。你经受着极大的病痛却不抱怨,积极配合医生的治疗,你坚信你会好起来的,直到最后你都没有放弃。三月八日,你没有起床,睡了一整天,我们一直陪在你身旁, 偶尔你张开一下眼睛,就又合起来。三月九日你同样没有起床,又睡了一整天,我们一直观察着你的血氧和心跳频率。三月十日三时,我最后一次给你湿润清洁你的口腔,那时你睡的很平静,六时壮一看你,你平静的睡着,七时我下楼来到你身边时,护理正在摸着你的脖子找脉搏跳动,就在这时你平静的与世长辞了。

你多年的愿望是走出三界外,不在五行中。2009年底的那场肺炎几乎要了你的命,之后你读了几本“前世今生”的书,你对我说,你对死亡没有恐惧,放掉了现世的躯体,去往另一个空间,那是更更美丽漂亮的空间。

你已经不再被世间的病痛情欲所困,潇洒自在地翱翔宇宙中。

五七,35天过去了。今天的心情特别悲伤。
昨天下午带你回到Naples, 你是那样的期待着在这里安度退休后的日子。

I was so very sorry to hear of Dr. Zhang’s untimely passing. He and his lovely wife have been sustaining visionary supporters of our medical research for the last decade at the Johns Hopkins Myositis Center. Together, they established an enduring research fund that would go on to allow us to unlock many mysteries of myositis and related lung diseases. Through their generous support, we have been able to better understand the pathophysiology of these cryptic illnesses, improve diagnostic testing, and enhance treatments and outcomes for our patients. We published well over 100 scientific papers together as a team. We grew from a small Center of just 4 doctors in 2007 to now 13 physicians and researchers. Our research was exciting to young physicians who joined the effort to study these challenging and complex illnesses. This excitement was a direct result of the data we were able to gather from the funding support we were given. We had the ability to pursue important research questions that were at times deemed too early for federal grant support. It was through these early studies that we were able to get needed pilot data to secure federal funding to go on to do further studies. Our research is often quoted worldwide. Indeed, I have been fortunate to give talks on six continents teaching the world about what we have learned in the field of autoimmune muscle diseases. We owe a debt of gratitude that could not adequately be repaid in these words. Please know that I will miss Dr. Zhang‘s quiet smile. I loved the interaction between him and his wife. As a physician, I had the privilege of knowing him in a medical capacity, but more importantly, getting to know him and Ms. Zhang as the amazing people that they are was the real joy. My condolences to the entire family, including his beautiful children. As always, I wish we had more time together; however, I carry him with me every day as I try to do better for every patient with myositis. His vision will have a lasting legacy on every patient who is touched by this disease. I am a better person for having known Dr. Zhang.

34th Anniversary
翻看着旧照片,回想起一起经历的许许多多往事,心情不再那么焦虑。

Dear Siuling, thank you for sharing this and allowing each of us to share our stories of the wonderful man you and your children loved so deeply. Huayi (or "Dr. Zhang" as our team referred to for the first few years until he said "Mike, we are friends, it is Huayi!") was a gentle, calm, brilliant and humble man. I was happy for your family when he said he was going to be spending more time in Naples but I also know how much he loved his work and the impact his research will leave. We will miss Huayi and will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers!

So very sad to hear of Huayi’s passing, a good friend and colleague for over twenty years. Chatting in his office was always so enjoyable as he shared his many different views on a wide variety of subjects. His sense of humor and insight made these gatherings so memorable. 
Our thoughts are with Siuling and family at this sad time.

二十多年前,化一和秀玲无私赞助我们的项目,我们有了启动的资金,并有了来自他/她俩无微不至的关心和鼎力帮助。化一和秀玲的谦虚、平和、睿智、奉献,给人很深刻的印象,与他/她们一见如故。一直都记得我们每次相聚的点点细节;记得我和秀玲第一次、第二次、第三次...见面,记得我们的秉烛夜谈,感念秀玲和化一在我困难时对我各方面的关心和劝勉。

惊闻化一仙去,泪雨顿湿衫襟。这二十多年来,化一始终是我最尊敬、最信任的挚友。长歌当哭,赋诗敬呈。

    送化一

勿须颂行吹玉箫
九天雄风伴春潮
云中眠仙升紫气
浪里腾蛟泛白涛
廿载同舟呴以湿
最忆彩霞过北沼
此去苍穹无尽处
扶摇远眺正登高

秀玲,请节哀,你和孩子们多多保重!化一在天堂等待着你们,也等待着我们!

科大774 刘万东

白衣一袭昨日去,
泪眼同窗飘逸浮。
新生惊人免英语,
初学压台编话剧。

终身斯文总背影,
天堂有座客亦殊。

It was with great sadness and shock as I learned of Huayi's passing. Though never close to his family, we spent our many lunches together and talked on a wide range of topics. He would always call me Little Ming, in a very endearing way.

He was a guiding figure in many areas of life. When talking about current affairs, he always provided his insight and philosophy but never tried to argue or judge. Always, by thinking over his words, I obtained a new perspective. He also talked about how he missed the times he held his tiny baby daughter, he encouraged me to spend more time to form a tight bond with my toddler. "Don't miss out any moment or you will regret" he said, I followed. He also talked about the time both of his parents passed away when he was just 15, "it was like the whole world crumbled", all with a gentle smile.

Never once he complained about his own illness or boasted his many achievements and philanthropy. I remembered, me, not knowing his illness and also because he always looked cheerful, invited him for an after lunch walk, which was hilly and long. He hesitated but said "let's go". Then I saw him obviously could not catch his breath after a short distance. I wanted to turn back but he said "let's go on". Later, I often found him taking walks by himself after lunch, and was able to walk faster and in longer distance by time. Eventually we could all finish the walk side by side. I thought he must have fully recovered from whatever he had. Around then, his face would lit up talking about his fondness of the food and weather of Florida, where he would choose to retire. I was so happy for him.

Then this news hit. I still can't quite believe it. Huayi, you will be missed!

哭化一
辛丑寒冬,化一逝去。
噩耗传来,举家哀伤。
少有奇才,超乎寻常。
奋进不息,艰苦备尝。
抗争病魔,意志坚强。
事业巅峰,星耀辉煌。
关怀备至,情深谊长。
今夕永诀,生死茫茫。

惊悉大叔叔仙逝,特此悼念!
张化一是我的大叔叔,从小对他印象就感觉他是一个极具天赋,聪明睿智的人。无论是在学业,或者是工作上,都达到了常人无法企及的高度和成就,一直是我最敬佩的人。
同时,在我的成长经历中也无时无刻不感受到他对我的关怀。由于在我很小的时候叔叔就出国了,我们日常生活的交集不多,但经常都能收到他给我的礼物,感受到他对我的关心。在我大学毕业后,他对我继续读研究生出国留学的想法给予了极大的支持,使我能够顺利完成留学。14年,我们全家来美国一起相聚,在长岛欢乐的日子还历历在目,你带我们开车兜风,开游艇出海......一切的欢乐时光总是让人难以忘记。
走了的人他们只是去了另外个世界。愿你在另外的世界中安息,愿秀玲婶婶节哀顺变,保重身体。

侄张洋叩首!

I was very sad to learn of Huayi's passing. I can never forget how Huayi and Siuling graciously welcomed us when our group relocated from CA to NY. They opened their house to us all and made sure we felt not alone in our new environment. Huayi and Siuling also showed us by example how happy a family could be living and working in Long Island.

Although we were not in the same group, whenever we talked, Huayi was always a tremendous source of information, not only about work, but about philosophy, religion and other matters as well. His family's donation to Stony Brook University for Endowed Chairs in microbiology and rheumatology was a demonstration of his knowledge based generosity that accomplished something both specific and substantive.

Huayi's extraordinary knowledge and wise counsel, coupled with his generous, kind and humble nature will be missed by everyone.

Really sad to learn about Huayi's passing. Huayi had always been so kind to people around him. He had also contributed very generously to medical research, which will surely help many people in the future. He will be missed.

It was with sadness I have received the news of Huayi's passing. Suiling, please accept my sincerest condolences and kindly pass them to your children and the rest of the family. He will be missed.

雖然我與化一素未谋面,但對於他與肺疾病不屈不撓的博鬥精神與對生命力的堅強支撑,真是感佩不已。他真是活出了人生的精釆!
秀玲,人生苦短,妳的大半辈子都是在照顾所有的家人。在未来的日子里,雖然没有了老伴的陪伴,以你堅靱的個性與能力,相信可以很快的善後及調整情绪,可以調控自己後半輩子最想過的生活。來加卅時,記得来探望我们。
我们六姐妹在遥远的加卅送上最深摯的悼念與祝福。❤️❤️ 榕表姐敬上

化一走了,走得平静安详, 留给大家的却是无尽的思念 ...

我和化一自幼在上海是一墙之隔的邻居;青少年时代志趣相投,是学习的伙伴;1977年恢复高考时为备考而朝夕相处, 一起憧憬未来, 共享了梦想成真的喜悦; 多年后又在美国读研时相聚为室友,乃至结婚成家,其缘分延拓到了各自的家庭。我们之间有太多太多的故事...

在我人生的每一个重要时刻,化一总是如期而至。在他人生最后的七天里,我最大的安慰是在他的病榻前陪伴着他,我们彼此都明白心里要说的话,“来世再做好兄弟!”

    在阳和启蜇、品物皆春之时,我们将送别化一,心中除了深切的不舍和痛惜,更多的是无限的怀念!化一赴美后,一直关心生活在国内的哥哥姐姐,他和秀玲还邀请我们去美探亲。回想起2014年我们在长岛度过的欢聚时光,一切均历历在目。我们一起用餐,一起聊天;化一带我们去他工作的公司参观,每到一处都作详细介绍,如数家珍,我们能感受到他对公司满满的深情!我们也亲眼看到作为公司元老受到员工对他的尊敬!我们还去参观了他和秀玲捐资的医院,感受到他们博大的慈爱之心!当他亲自驾艇带我们游览海湾时,他爽朗的笑声仍似在耳边回响……点点滴滴…人生价值不是用时间,而是用深度去衡量的,化一的一生是有深度的,充满了对事业的执着、对生活的热爱、对家人的关怀、对朋友的诚挚、对慈善的奉献!人生本相同,却有完全不同的生命轨迹,而化一的人生轨迹是灿烂的!虽然他将离我们而去,但他的生命将在奉献中延续,他的精神将在人世间永存!化一永远活在我们心中!愿化一一路走好!张大镇 杨辛 率全家

TJ and I are deeply saddened by the passing of Huayi. Huayi and Siuling were one of the first friends we got to know when we moved to Long Island from North Carolina 7 years ago. Huayi has been an amazing and dedicated husband and father to his family. He is a man of many talents - a physicist, a mathematician, a scientist and a trading system specialist. Above all he is a philanthropist whose generosity and support has made a significant contribution to research in immunology and rheumatology which will benefit and improve the lives of many. His positive impact on the community and society at large will be felt for many generations to come.

Although I hardly spoke with Huayi I knew him from decades ago on various occasions. In recent year I befriended his wife Siuling through travel in Europe. Through Siuling I have been keenly aware of the heroic struggle with the illness Huayi had gone through. What a remarkable human being. A very wise and generous man! May his soul test in peace. May God bless his marvelous family!

我们今天和化一和他家人说两句,来记念这个时刻,每个人都会要面临时刻,从生命开始的那一瞬间。我们来记念他的生命,他对我们的影响和意义,也让我们数算我们生命中的每一刻。

生命用刻来算似不够珍惜。我伯父六十六岁因肺癌过世,他爱我,他离世的时候我不在他身边,他咳嗽地很辛苦,我父亲问他可不可以停止治疗了,他说每一呼吸生命都是值得的。伯父没有上过学,他用一呼吸来做生命的量词,我很感动,因为神用泥土造人的时候,向泥人鼻孔吹了一口气,他就成了有灵的活魂。

化一退休了,公司的员工依然记得和使用他的操作系统,餐厅的那把椅子现在空了,妻子和孩子们知道那是他的位置,病人在使用他资助的生物研究的成果,不知道幕后的捐助,有神记念。

初次与化一和他老伴见面是差不多三年前,出奇的了解到他胜过肺纤维化那么多年,还继续上班,参与公益活动。再一个生奇的是他老伴给他炖附子,黄耆鸡汤。有人学了一辈子中医,可能没有用过附子,他老伴给他用,秀玲是电子工程师博士,放弃职业,去学中医,就为那一个病人。化一生命后来是由他的另一半在支撑延续。

他知道他的孩子,孩子也爱他。
他爱过,也被爱过。这世上的生命有什么比这个更重?

让我们数算,珍惜每一呼一吸的生命,也思考离开这个世界之后的日子。

愿神恩待秀玲和孩子。

怀念化一 Remembering Huayi
我们在Naples有幸通过朋友认识了化一,他和秀玲对人的诚恳和热情使我们很快成了好朋友,化一身患疾病,但从来不提自己的病情,跟我们在一起的时候总是高高兴兴的,为我们做咖啡喝,跟我们一起乐。化一从不炫耀自己的成功和富有,总是那么谦虚低调,跟他在一起很自如,没有担心和拘谨。 好遗憾好心痛化一这么快就离开了我们,但他会一直活在我们心中!

It was with great sadness to hear and see that Dr. Huayi Zhang passed away. We are so sorry to lose a best friend.
Dr. Zhang loved science and was truly a brilliant scientist. He made significant contributions to scientific research, and his love of science and extraordinary intelligence brought him a rich and successful career. Huayi should have taken pride in his great accomplishments.
As dedicated philanthropist, Huayi donated precious fortunes to several academic institutions for scientific discovery and research. Those who have greatly benefited from the generous donations are and will be forever grateful. Huayi's selfless dedication and giving will be remembered forever.
We will miss a kind soul and low-profile character.
In loving memory of Dr. Huayi Zhang.

惊悉张化一先生去世,悲痛万分,我谨代表纽约中医学院全体师生员工向张先生致哀!并向张夫人及家属致以诚挚的慰问!

张先生与夫人对纽约中医学院关爱之至,曾多次捐款资助学院的继续教育项目,学院邀请到石学敏院士、头针发明人焦顺发前辈、董氏奇穴传人杨维杰博士、平衡针发明人谭特夫医生等世界著名专家前来学院讲学,使学院声名大振,同时也大力推动提高了纽约针灸界的学术与临床水平。张先生与夫人还设立基金资助纽约中医学院“中药提高非特异性肺纤维化患者生命质量”的临床研究,该研究获得食品药品管理局(FDA)批准启动临床试验,基金进一步资助学院与香港大学中医药学院合作实施该临床试验,可以告慰的是,临床报告已完成初稿即将发表。

今年是纽约中医学院成立二十五周年院庆,学院成立以来得到像张化一先生这样的慈善家大力支持,才得以茁壮成长。张先生功德无量,再次感谢他的无私奉献。

曾有幸与张先生谋面数次,他和蔼可亲,学识渊博,温文儒雅,真君子也!值得我们永远缅怀!
