    Dear Uncle Dan,
    You were a wonderful Uncle! We have so many fond memories with you. You even taught me to drive one summer. We loved spending time with you when you came out to visit and when we saw you at your home.
    May you Rest In Peace. We love you!

    Dear Uncle Dan,
    You were the kindest and nicest uncle. I have so many fond and vivid memories of the summers you would come visit us or when we would go visit you. You were always so generous with your time with us. You also passed your love of baseball (the Cubs for you, of course) to me. You will forever be in my heart.

    I remember how we first met at Ming’s Carryout Restaurant; how I was one of the matchmakers for you and Jacinta; how we ended up working in the same VA Hospital; how you were called the most diligent and careful pharmacist in the Hospital; how we enjoyed so many parties together in Chow’s home, how you made those delicious Dim Sums, especially teaching me to make those beef jerky.
    I also remember how you were afflicted with so many illness,and triumphed over all these pain and suffering with acceptance, endurance and a subtle smile!
    I also remember saying goodbye to you on the mobile phone a few days ago, bidding you to keep on praying for me when you’re in Heaven, that when my time on earth comes to an end ,I may eternally join you in Heaven . Don’t forget that.🙏🙏
    Your Godfather
