Memories Timeline


  1. Selton, The many discussions we had during lunchtime after Sunday services at church were inspiring and helpful. We had certain similar health problems and your sharing had given me much comfort. It is SAD to see you go but we shall meet some day in the glory of the Lord. May you now partake the peace and joy of Heaven, a place where there is no pain nor suffering.
    Praying for sister Ling and your family,
    Willie Mark

  2. 在我的心目中,爸爸是一位可敬可爱的老学究。他每次出门都拎着公文包,里面装着他的钢笔,小药盒,热水杯,小饼干和牙线盒。他还喜欢带帽子,穿马甲。
