Not sure what to say?

In life, once in a while God sends us somebody that touches our lives and leaves us with a fond memory. Kwong was such a person. He was a man of few words, but he meant what he says. He was gifted and not bragging. He served in season and out of season. He was dedicated to his Lord and kept prodding. We count it an honor and a privilege to know him and his family.

With his home going, it's a lost to all those who know him. But we are assured that he is with the Lord whom...

Dearest Pastor Yau,

You came every Friday to share Jesus' love, rain, snow or shine;
You opened your house to us for everything, you don't mind.
Your love for music shows, and everybody knows;
You have a great voice, along with the violin and bow.
Your sermon touched hearts, leading us closer to God;
Your gentleness, patience and courage to us you taught.
You will be missed and we don't want you to go,
In Heaven we'll meet again, fore sure of this...

To our "Big Brother" Kwong,

In our hearts, you are someone whom we have always looked up to. Your quiet integrity and strength had inspired us when we were young, and still a bright citadel of hope and grace in our older years. Your personal difficulties had never diminish the faith, humility and humor you pocessed and displayed.

We are still associating you with things we see...violin, Volks Wagon Beetle, badminton racquet...and until we meet again in...

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." We were challenged and blessed by Kwong's positive attitude and ability to encourage others in the midst of his hardship and suffering during the last years of his life on earth. He was truly an inspiring example. Although missed by family and friends, we know he is in a better place enjoying fellowship with the God and Savior he so faithfully served on earth.

In Christ,
Jeff &...

To Christina, Hannah and Lydia,

May God comfort you, and may His presence be with you during this grieving time of your family.

From Lily- I am thankful that I was able to visit Rev. Yau a few years back. His joyful spirit impressed in my heart and my spirit until today even he suffered the Multiple System Atrophy.

Rev. Yau, or "Kwong" as we used to call you, you have run a good race, you are a faithful servant to Jesus. Your life has impacted...

“Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.”“Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.” (Rev 14:13)
Rev Yau was my first pastor and he had set a good example of a humble servant. Though Rev Yau had experienced lots of physical challenges, I am comforted to learn his deeds will follow him and be remembered by the Lord in eternity.

Mr Yau was my first violin teacher when I was very young in Hong Kong. I always admired how well he played the violin. Later on, when I knew that he became a pastor and we had some common friends in Texas, I really wanted to pay him a visit but never got around to do it. I finally got in touch with him through email and learned that he had Multiple System Atrophy. I was quite saddened but he still maintained a positive attitude.
Mr. Yau, thank you for introducing this wonderful...

To Christina, Hannah & Lydia,

Please know that our thoughts are with you. Pastor Chung-kwong was an amazing and wonderful person. He built a strong and loving family that our family enjoys being with. He built a church that we enjoyed being part of. We thank him for being part of our lives. So sorry for your lost and accept our deepest condolences. God bless you all.

Fred, Agnes, Christy, Candice & Byron

And I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Blessed indeed," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!" (Rev 14:13 ESV)
????????????????????????????????.???????????????????????????? (Rev 14:13 CU5)
Dear Kwong, I miss you!
