    This year has been very hard on the entire world. A pandemic hit on an election year and the entire nation went up in arms. But there is hope and opportunities for positive change. The most important lessons you have ever taught me continue to resonate loud and clear. I can’t believe it’s year 12 and I miss you the most on this very day. Maybe it’s all the what ifs, if you were still here… Or missing the nurturing advice you always gave. Either way, I laugh and smile at all the best menories and shed tears wishing to see you again. Love you 3000.

    Upendo.

    Until we meet again, AM. Love you!

    Let’s try this again. I don’t know what I did wrong the first time. You were always so good at the computer and I miss going to you for help in so many ways of my life. I can’t believe you’ve been gone so long – Another year has come and gone; it’s already 2020. We all miss you so much, you just can’t begin to imagine. I often wonder what it would be like if you were still here with us to share your thoughtful insights and fun-loving adventures. But even today, they still have made no progress on the type of cancer you had. Only God knows why. The tree dedicated to you in Lake Havasu is strong and tall – just like when you were here, so strong. You would be proud of your nephews and would be a great-aunt for the 2nd time in Feb 2021 – close to mom’s birthday. We are all doing well and talk about you often. Of course, we will never forget you. Thank you so much for the wonderful memories…. but wish you were here. You will live in our hearts forever. But in the meantime, I have faith that Jesus has you in His loving arms and you are enjoying Heaven. Until we meet again. Love you forever sister

      Year 13.

      This year I get to honor you and many others that have touched my life deeply. I think of you often and wish you were still here to share in my successes and failures. Now I have a special place that I can physically visit and share with everyone. This paver is a small reminder of how large of an imprint you left on my heart. I love and miss you dearly, Monica.

      For those who are interested in seeing the paver. It’s at CSUF and one of the first installed. Promenade West #13.

      Always in my heart.

      Upendo, Dr. C. CHEN
