ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Yingmin "Mimi" Yu. Mimi was a wonderful spouse of Dr. CY and a beautiful mother to Hugh and Ning.  We will remember her forever.

Mimi passed away on 29 June 2019 in Houston, Texas.

A bench in memory of Mimi has been set up in the Houston Arboretum, which was one of my mom's favorite places.

A year has quickly passed since you passed away...

Your face, smile and laughter are still remembered clearly in our heart, though we miss you very much, and which you were here with us.

We love you and miss you!

Mimi, yours is a life lived the fullest. You set a good example for me and my new resolution is -- travel more, and take more pictures together with friends.

咪咪,至今仍然不相信这是真的。你的音容笑貌仍然时时出现在眼前,最后一次见面你留下的话语仍然回响在脑中。天堂里没有病痛,你会得到永恒的安宁。等着我们,天堂相聚,再一起歌唱。

I am so sorry for your loss. It is one of the most difficult experiences when losing someone so near and dear to your heart.
I hope you find can find some comfort the way I do when I read Ecclesiastes 9:5, "the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all". It brings me great comfort knowing that my loved one is not in any pain or suffering from anything.
I look forward to the day I can meet them again!

We Love you,

咪咪你走得太突然,太快了。让我无法接受这悲痛的事实。
作为女附中的校友,又是在休斯顿交往三十余年的朋友,更是幸福舞蹈班一起快乐跳舞十几年的姐妹,你的善良,友好待人,乐于助人,积极参与社团活动,广交朋友……这一切在追思你的时候都浮现在眼前。
你有关爱你的先生,有让你骄傲的事业有成的孩子们,有给你无比快乐的孙儿孙女,你的生活是充实又快乐的。
咪咪,在那没有病痛与悲伤的地方,安息吧!你的音容笑貌和我们的友情将永留我心中。

往事依稀,泪眼朦胧。千言万语,道不尽思念,音容笑貌镌刻心间,今生有缘相识相知,来生我们再相遇愿您在天堂一切安好

我與 Mimi 不熟 但幾年來每周五的黃河練唱下來也不算陌生 還記得(兩三年前)黃河搭大巴去達加斯參加合唱活動並在市中心觀光行 回程時我與咪咪正巧坐同排座位 隔著走道聊天 談到中美 兩岸文化及家庭教育等 半個多小時似乎大部分是我在發表己見 咪咪很耐心地聽我説話 是個很有風度的對話者。這也是我多年來唯一一次與她超過兩分鐘的對話 不料人也離我們而去 不禁感傷。 謹附上下面一首歌做為紀念 : 我知誰掌管明天 I Know Who Holds Tomorrow

I remembered when I first join Happy Dancers group how everyone welcome me. I will never forget Mimi’s big smile. I don’t know ‍♀️ what it is but whenever we all meet for practice I could feel a special unique bond among us. She was my dancing partner & never scolded me for my endless mistakes. I will miss her dearly.
Posted by SKT on July 2, 2019
Auntie Mimi was a loving and kind person, whoever met her loved her instantly. She always helped others and never said no. Thank you Auntie Mimi for all you have done and you will be missed greatly and we will miss your big smile the most.

Only met Mama Zhang few times but my memories of her is always cheerful and friendly. Always love her energetic move and big smile and telling of her stories, adventures etc... Mama Zhang lived a great life and groomed a wonderful family ! Take care Papa Zhang, Ning, Ju Ling and families !
Posted by Ning Zhang on July 1, 2019
My mom has always been a kind and gentle hearted person. Anyone who has met her knows that she talks to everyone, and wants to help everyone... 
My brother and I are fortunate to learn from her traits, which we will forever remember, and pass on to our future generations.
We love you and will miss you very much.

Since my husband became ill I have yet to go back to the weekly Happy Dancers group. Even though I haven't attend  I still have this warm feelings in my heart for each of the Happy Dancers.  There is such a unique bond of friendship that when it is time to go home I couldn't wait for Wednesday and Thursday to come again.  It is like having family like friends among family. I didn't realize how seriously ill MiMi was and was hoping to see her soon. Only yesterday, confirmed how ill she was. I don't know if I make any sense but like I said there is that special feeling I have. I am sadden wishing that this is just a dream and that I will see MiMi again, I am hurt and shocked. I may never be able to see her big smile again but I have my memories of her encouraging words and never scolding me for my endless mistakes. MiMi you will be missed


咪咪 你听我说......

Shared by Winter Wang on July 2, 2019

亲爱的咪咪,

今天和你说话,你已经在天堂了。整理照片的时候刚刚意识到,时间过得这么快!回想起来,我们已经在一起歌唱二十多年了,照片里的你,还是那么年轻!2006年我们在去休斯顿交响乐团音乐会之前在水墙前面留下的照片是你最真实的写照,你的内心是多么的纯净啊!放假之前我还跟你说,这次音乐会你一定要参加,你说一定争取参加。知道你又要去旅行半年,祝你玩的好,回来参加演出。

最后一次去康复中心看你,你的精神还很好,还自己下地走路,我走的时候张先生推着你一直把我送到停车场。老张说,今天你来了她感觉好多了。你看着我上车开走,还是那样微笑着冲我挥手,我也向你挥手。你留给我的最后一句话是:“你永远是我最好的朋友。”这么多年来你一直关心着我,就是这最后一次还提到了你念念不忘的心事。等着我吧咪咪,我会来天堂和你做伴儿。

这一切发生的这么突然,我还盼着专家来看你,尽快开始治疗,你会日趋稳定。6月29日上午老张还语音说“今天略好,如果稳定就可以转入普通病房”,可是5个小时后就传来了晴天霹雳!

你甜美的声音、你灿烂的笑容都定格在了这一瞬间,留给我们的是永远的美好记忆。

咪咪,天堂里没有病痛,在那里你会获得永生。你先走一步,我们大家都会去与你会面,继续歌唱。

我们不说永别,我们只说再见!

你的好朋友 Winter
