I wish to express my condolences to the family of Hoa Phan. I know this is a tremendous loss for your family. Regretfully I did not know her personally, but from what I have observed in her son Maurice, ‘the apple didn’t fall far from the tree’. May God strengthen and keep you.

I’m so sorry for your loss. By the stories you’ve told us about your mom and the things I just read she sounds like she was a great woman and mother.
