Dear Ivy and Chung-chun:

I just heard about the saddest news yesterday from Dwight which made my heart felt so heavy and deeply in sorrow. Our mother passed away!!! Even with her gracious 100 years in this world, It is indeed a huge loss to all of us.

If her attendant were found her not being normal [e.g. breathing problem, etc.] earlier by more closely watching her, could sent her to hospital in time, perhaps might have a chance to save her life. She died in peace, was the best arrangement and blessing by God if God wants Mom to be with HIM at that moment. God awarded her the best toward her end due to her being her, a loving and respectful human being.

Mom was a gentle and talented person, a role model for us all. She will forever be in our heart.

Is there any memorial service to be held in NYC? even a private one. Please let me know.

My deepest sympathy,

Cathy

Dad,

I am very sorry to hear about nah-nai's passing. This is a sad moment for all of us, but its good to know that you were able to visit last month and spend some time with her. I don't know what condition she was in towards the end, but I hope she was in no pain and was at peace. 100 years old is such a remarkable feat and I would like to think she had a full and proud and fulfilling time for most of those 100 years. Jo and I will pray for her to be with God and re-unite with Ye-Ye in heaven. Also, thank you for reminding us the story of Ye-Ye and of his great abilities, spirit, and sacrifice. It is inspiring and humbling knowing more about our ancestors and understanding where we come from.

Joanna and I are traveling now but will be returning to DC later today (Monday). Please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist with anything, when the funeral will be, and if there is an address we can send flowers. 

Dad - This must a very difficult and sad time for you. Jo and I are praying for you also, and send our love and positive thoughts to you, Goo-Goo, and the rest of the family.

Dwight.+ Joanna

Grandpa

Dwight,   I was informed that my mother (your nai-nai/grandma ) just  past away on July 1 , with an age of 100; apparently, her decease  is not due to any specific illiness or sickness but the natural causes.Thus, her death   ,on  one hand ,which  is  a great sorrow and sad news to me , but  on the other hand,  it might be a good relief for a person  to end her/his  long and routine life in this miserable and passionless world. IN a sense,  this  might be a  right time and opportunity  for her to reunion with her spouse -your grangpa/Ye-Ye. 
By the way, I think it's time for me to  say/talk  something about your grandga/YeYe to you  ,whom I believe you have never been told or mentioned before!.  His name is I-Sheng Yang,  who was born in 1917 and graduated from a private university (ST. Jhon 's college)  in Shanghai ,which was famous for its  education in English .  Who married my mother (your nai-nai ) and  started to work at the postal office as a clerk  that was during Sino-Japanese war  and Shanghai was occupied by Japanese . in 1946 , one  years after Japan was defeted by the Allies  /surrendered in 1945  , he was sent  to Taiwan and worked at the postal office. at the seashore city - Keelung  . Then ,your  nai-nai and his two sons (me and your great uncle; at ages 5 and 7 ) )  joined him in Taiwan  in 1947. Note that Chiang Kai-Sik  retreated to Taiwan in 1948 which also started the separations of Taiwan and nowaday called the mainland China. Your YeYe since had changed several of his jobs, the last one (retired from ) was  working with NACC  (which was a US Navy  Intelligence gathering Center )  because of his Englisg proficiency. . By then the pay was very good in comparing with other jobs for  people in Taiwan . Now, what striked me the most had and has been the ability to meromorize/recite  all the English vocabulary (spelling of the words)  in a English-Chinese dictionary . Thus, to me he was just a walking dictory and  that saved  me efforts to look -up  a dictory for any unknown  English word or vocabulary . Even, in my applcation of US's graduate School  for graduate studies  , he was the one  helped me to  contact and  type and even fill the form nicely , for me. Finally, I was able to receive the full-amount scholarship (TA -ship )  from University of Wisconsin-Madison Campus  and made what I am today.  Besides this, in short,  I should say that  I have been effected greatly by his life style (simple and almost rigid!) and  spirit (caring and sacrifice  for his family members!)  in my way of life , especially in the  devotion or sacrifice for  the family members and the education of the children. 
 Note both of Nai-Nai and Ye-Ye  were Christian and belived in God ; your grandpa was an elder in a  Luthern Church in Taipei, Taiwan . Thus, with the sorrow of my mother 's decease  in heart , I  would like to take the opportunity to pray and wish God to  receive your Nai-Nai and enable her to unite  with  her beloved spouse-my father (your Ye-Ye) in Heaven.    Dad
