    Dear Monica,

    Year 14. I think of you often and miss you dearly, but on this day, I miss you the most. I was in a meeting with a leader and he mentioned the collaboration he does with FNL. What fond memories rushed to me at that moment and how vividly I remember those wonderful times. Your legacy will live on and I hope all that you’ve taught me continue in every thought or action I do. Love you so much and miss you always. #BecauseYouLovedMe

    Upendo, Dr. C. Chen

    My dear sister. We love you forever. You are never forgotten and we miss you everyday. We laugh about the funny memories you’ve forever etched in our hearts and celebrate your birthday every 4th of July. And I finally made a peach cobbler you would love. We think about how old you’d be and the great times we shared while you were with us. Mom, dad and all of your family wish things were different. But God had another plan. We’ll see you again when we meet up in Heaven.

    Year 15. The last three months were most difficult for me as my beloved Cleo was diagnosed with malignant Sarcoma. I was devastated. She passed away in my arms October 30th, 2023 and I feel like there is another hole in my heart, missing her so much. As I think back to the struggles I went through to provide her the best comfort care I could for the last few months of her life; I always think back to how resilient, caring, and so strong throughout all that you were going through. Not once did you ever show pain or unhappiness; you always had a smile and wonderful words of wisdom when I needed you most. I can’t imagine my life without your presence and love every wonderful memory we have together. Miss and love you so much.

    Please give snuggles and kisses to Cleo and Tinkys for me.

    Upendo, Dr. C. Chen.
