刚看完晓冬的相册,看到一双漂亮阳光的儿女,和依然那么帅气的老公……可以想象,家人这样的精神面貌的背后,是晓冬幸福温暖的付出和大气有力量的人格 我相信不管在哪,有晓冬的地方就会有欢笑

I read the tributes and stories about you almost everyday. when reading Allies tributes, my eyes are wet. Yesterday when I go out to the garden planning for some vegetable planting, I thought of you. There will be no 冬瓜苗 anymore。 You will be missed by your friends and your family.

It's been two weeks and I'm still in shock. I hate waking up and not being able to look out my bedroom window to see you working in the garden. Every time I walk past your room, I'm still half expecting to hear the whirring of your computers or some podcast in Chinese with jokes that I only half understand. When I go into your room it's cold. It never felt that way when you were here. You were so warm. Like any mother and daughter we argued. We argued a lot but in the end I loved you and you still loved me. It never mattered how mad we were.
I've been wanting to write something but I can never quite find the right words. All of the moments we spent together, I took for granted. I check this page every day, reading every story and trying to engrain every picture of you in my brain. I wish I had a recording of your voice to listen to. I love you, 妈妈.

Am so very sorry for your loss. A beautiful tribute to a lovely angel - She would be so honored by this sweet page. God bless and please stay strong. No, you don't know me, but I'm here for you if you need a new friend in the world. Take care and stay safe. ~ Veronica, USA

You would be missed.

Xiaodong 阿姨, I am still a little in shock. For as long as I can remember, you have been such a big part of my life. I remember being so happy when you'd come over for dinner, when we'd stay up playing cards and cracking sunflower seeds until my eyes wouldn't stay open. I remember staring with wonder at the gigantic tomatoes you grew in your garden and commenting how your green beans somehow always tasted better than ours. And I remember all the times when you took care of me when I was sick, when my parents were busy and you would be there. Xiaodong 阿姨, you are a part of so many of my memories, from DEFCON to Kalahari, from summer sunrises to winter hotpot. You always treated Lily and I like we were a part of your family, and you were family to us too. I hope you rest well and know that you will be with us, always.

I still keep denying Xiaodong is gone. Xiaodong is a common and the most capable person I have ever met: an affection mom with two lovely kids, an IT security master, a garden expert, a tractor (Chinese card game) wizard, and a Pokémon pro. No matter what she does, she can always do the best. She is a special person who shines and glows briefly in our lives, but will be memorized forever. R.I.P. Xiaodong!

亲爱的晓东, 这些天, 我没法给你写下留言。 因为任何词语都不能表达我对你的不舍和思念。 你是一个平凡的伟大女人,我的百科全书和偶像。怀念我们一起跑步, 一起做月饼, 一起养小鸡,一起抓螃蟹, 一起抓Pokémon, 一起聊天的日子。 这一切仿佛就在昨日, 但现在却那么的遥远… 

晓东,一路走好。 希望你在世界的另一边一切安好!永远爱你 !

就像是昨天,我还和晓东在中文学校的走廊聊天,聊起孩子们的成长和未来,晓东满脸自豪!难忘晓东微带俏皮的笑容,难忘晓东充满活力和爱心的人品,世上无难事的自信!愿晓东安息,俏容永存!

晓东,有几年没见了,看到消息除了心痛还是心痛……在宾州的美好记忆中总有你的身影。愿你在那个世界,忘却世俗的烦恼,开心的养花种菜…… 想念你

嘻嘻哈哈的坐在一起打牌聊天,仿佛还在眼前。转眼,物是人已非,更作死生分。庄子说得好:载我以形,劳我以生,佚我以老,息我以死。

晓东,一路走好,愿天堂没有烦恼。

Dear Xiaodong, how I missed you! It has been six years since we left Pennsylvania, but every time I thought about old friends there, your warm smile always filled my heart. You are the most capable lady I have ever seen. I remember the days YouYou slept on your back, the secret recipe of your delicious pasta and the little apron you made for every kid on YaYa’s birthday. How I wish I could talk to you again. RIP, my dear friend!

Xiaodong share the same enthusiasm with me about edible gardening. During the season we share the seed, seeding and also the harvest. She is a such nice, wonderful human being. She will be missed forever.

California sunny days hurt the most.
Everywhere I go,
A familiar figure came into vision.
Always cheerful and lively,
She stood out in any crowd.
Dark, short hair fluttered up and down,
Charming smile, perfect teeth,
Cross shoulder bag is the signature.
Forever young, like a college kid.
Why?
Steady pace suddenly quickened…
My eyes couldn’t keep up.
Wait!
Wait!


She is gone.


Hope you rest in a better place,
Knowing our Love, gratitude and admiration will never fade,
the way we care for the footprint you left on our hearts.


R.I.P Xiaodong

Nothing can be compared, to the priceless memories we shared. It is so painful to lose a close friend like you. You will live at the bottom of my heart forever. Miss your smile, miss your warmth and miss you as such a wonderful friend! R.I.P. Xiaodong!

Not a sister by blood, but definitely a sister by heart!

RIP, Xiaodong. We love you!

I still cannot believe that we lost Xiaodong, such a dear friend. I will miss you, miss your vegetable, miss your veggie seedlings. You are such a informative person, always brought so much convenience to the friends around you. Almost everybody I know ate something from your vegetable garden. Without you, there is that hollow forever.

We were so deeply saddened to hear the sudden passing of Xiaodong. She was such an amazing and fantastic friend! We will always miss her warmth and bright smile, her garden, her chickens and her warm house.
