Legacy of Love

A wife, a mother, a grandma too,
This is the legacy we have from you.
You taught us love and how to fight,
You gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind.
You fought for us all in one way or another,
Not just as a wife not just as a mother.
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep.


The Angels gathered near your bed so very close to you.
For they knew the pain and suffering that you were going through.
I thought about so many things, as I held tightly to your hand.
Oh, how I wished that you were strong and happy once again.
But your eyes were looking homeward to that place beyond the sky.
Where Jesus held His outstretched arms, it was time to say goodbye.
I struggled with my selfish thoughts, for I wanted you to stay.
So we could walk and talk again, like we did – just yesterday.
But Jesus knew the answer, and I knew He loved you so.
So I gave to you life’s greatest gift, the gift of letting go.

Chi Oahn, We miss you and wish you were healthy and still here with us.You were the most wonderful Sister to us, Your helpfulness, generosity, kindness, thoughtful ways, welcoming us during every family gathering we ever had, celebrating our Engagement, Wedding, sharing pictures, the birth of James, & James's graduations, sharing your wisdom with us. Allowing us to get close with you and your family. You were a huge part of every part of our lives. We miss your love, your giggle and your smile. You always made us feel that we were welcome and we belonged. One day we will all be together again in Heaven and we can hug you, laugh with you and thank you for everything you did for us. We know you are in Heaven praying for us and we pray daily for you too. Life is not the same without you. We carry you in our hearts forever. Love you always Love Hien, James & Mary Vu (O.F.S.) Order Franciscan Secular.

Mom,
We want to wish you a Happy Mother's Day!
This is our first Mother's Day without you. It's been raining and cold and that's how I feel without you around. We miss your voice, laughter, smile, cautious advices...but most of all we miss you!
What would I say to you if I get to see you for another Mother's Day? I would say "thank you" for everything. Thank you for taking the time out to teach me from right and wrong. Thanking for being patient with me. Thanking for always being caring and forgiving.
Life without you is not the same. I always think back to those early times when our family was all together.  I miss those times. It felt like eternity that Dad has been gone. We use to share those memories of Dad when you were with us.  The world is so unkind. We miss you very much. We would have loved to share many more Mother's Day with you. We will continue to keep your memories in our hearts and minds.
Love you always,
Con Anh, Con Thao, Chau Guinevere & Sophia
