"It's been 3 years now. We miss you almost every moment when we get together at dinner table; when we talk about China and the US; when we recall how we met and the enjoyment of working at AT&T; when we have computer questions but are unable to get a quick answer; when we talk about cars and other mechanical gadgets...

I guess those moments will keep visiting us forever."

"Dear Daddy, I really miss you! I wish you were here during my graduation in May, to see me off to Taiwan in a few days, and to go to my white coat ceremony next year. I know you would be so proud to see me start my MD/PhD program at Harvard!

Mom and I are doing better now so don’t worry about us. We still do miss you terribly every day. A few days ago, I put up the car sticker for medical school next to the one you put for Yale five years ago. I couldn’t quite figure out how you fixed yours inside the car window, but I did my best. You would have been so happy to put it up and would have done a much better job. This is just one small instance of many instances where I try my best to fill in the roles you left behind. But sometimes I know, I’ll never live up to everything you were to us.

It’s been almost three years since you’ve been gone. I will forever treasure the memories of us - in the long car rides back from art class, eating sunflower seeds together after dinner, at the top of the Grand Canyon on our summer family vacation to California. There is not a single day that goes by I do not think of you. For everything I do and experience, I wonder if you’d be happy, proud, or disappointed. You and the memories of you will forever live in my heart.

I will always remember your lessons and teachings in every step of my future life and career - to be dedicated, always caring, and reliable. I will do my best to be the daughter you always hoped I would be. I love you and miss you so very much!"

"Dear Jerry,
You've departed from us about 2 years already that I'm really surprised how time flies.
Whenever I'm working on a project at home, big or small, I can't help thinking about you as we talked about some renovation that we planned to work on and exchanged notes on details. It was fun, wasn't it. But the discussion is history now and the enjoyment will probably never come back...
Sooner or later we will meet, in the world that you stepped in ahead of me. Hopefully it wouldn't be too hard to find you so we could carry on with our discussion, as well as our enjoyment interrupted.
We all miss you!
Lao Zhang"

"You’ve already left us for one year, but to me it seems like a hundred years. I firmly believe that you are now in another world. My dear, is everything fine with you? Are you thinking of us in that other world the way we think about you daily?

We had promised years ago to walk hand in hand through old age to the end. But heaven’s plans don’t always follow our plans, and you took a step further. Even though I ask the heavens every moment why, I am still thankful for the God-given chance to meet, to love each other, and to live together for 27 beautiful years. I am also thankful you gave me our daughter, who I know I can rely on after your passing.

The days without you will never be the same as before: beautiful and simple. Even though the days are now full of struggles, I am thankful that you taught our daughter and me the skills to live independently. Without you, our daughter and I will still strive to endure and to move forward, step by step, day by day.

We love you and miss you dearly, my loving husband Jianjun!"

"It came with a shock when Qing told me the sad news. I and my family have known Jianjun and his family for several years through their daughter Chantia when she moved in Randolph at Fernbrook elementary school in the second grade with my daughter Joanna. Joanna hit it off with Chantia and became her best friend. Joanna told me that there was a new Chinese girl in her class who was very bright and well advanced in math. Since then they spent many times together in parties, sleeping over and Chinese weekend school. I started to know Jianjun a little bit more as time goes by. My first impression is that he was nice, humble man. He was quiet and friendly and worked very hard for a better life. He and his family went through all the struggles as the first generation immigrants we all did in the process. I witnessed all the progress through him and his family. He lived in Randolph for about 5 years in an apartment near Chantia’s school. With a high expectation on his daughter, they moved to another town with better education and high standard. As expected, Chiantia excelled in the top school through her strong motivation and competence. Not satisfied yet, Jianjun and his family made another move to the Short Hills, which is the top town with a school system ranked on the top of New Jersey. As usually, Chiantia took the challenge and adapted well in the ultra-competitive environment. Chantia became a star and went on to Yale for the college. Through the growth of his daughter, I see the Jianjun and his family the desire for better life and the high expectation for the next generation. I witnessed his struggle in the beginning, progress made and a bright future when they finally settled down in Morristown. I salute him for the tremendous sacrifices he made to pave the foundation and the opportunities for his daughter to prosper. When I walked with my wife in Morristown, we sometimes commented that Jianjun and his family should be very happy now as they had a stable job with an aspiring daughter. Everything works out just perfect. I even anticipate visiting his new home in Morristown.
Jianjun didn’t talk a lot even we spent time together. His action spoke louder than his words. In a way, he exemplifies a Chinese father who would scarifice everything for his lovely daughter. With that he should rest assured and happy for the achievement by Chantia. I am sure Chantia will forever appreciate and remember his lovely father for what he has done in his whole life.
May Jianjun rest in peace.

Don and Linda, your friends at Randolph"

"Jay (Jerry) and I worked together for several years at the same company, until 2008. I considered him a very good friend. We talked regularly about work, and life in general. He was a great listener who responded thoughtfully. He frequently reached out to me even after he left our company, with holiday greetings and sharing and inquiring about family. Jerry was a very kind and considerate man. I can still visualize his consistent smiling face. I will miss his frequent contacts and sincere exchanges. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. May he rest in peace."

"Thank you, my dear Daddy, for all that you have done for me and mom. I wish I had told you how much you mean to me. I wish I had said that you were the best dad any daughter could ask for. But it all happened so fast that in the blink of an eye, you were gone from our lives forever. I’m still grappling to grasp the meaning of a loss that is forever. I might never truly understand it but I’m glad I got the chance to I knew you well. I know what you’d want for me and I know what made you happy and what made you proud. I have all 20 years, almost 21 years, of memories of you that remain vivid in my mind. Even though you’re gone, you’ll never be forgotten. In a way, you live on through me and mom and anyone who was fortunate enough to know you well. You’ll forever be in our hearts, so don’t worry too much now. Thank you for gracing our lives with your love and kindness. Be at peace."
