Dearest Wong Family, I remember calling Adolphus when my mother Lucia passed away in 1985, how comforting your family was then and close to mine. I have such fond memories of our families together and had such great respect for the Wong's. I am so sorry for the loss of Adolphus, such a great and inspiring man to me when I grew up.

Our sincere condolences to your family. We feel priviledged to have the chance to get to know Adolphus in the last couple of years. He's such a gentle spirit and always had another story about China to share with us. Tammy, please let us know if there's anything we can help.

I have had you foremost in my mind not only this past week, but in this past year - I know your family together has struggled and persisted and I am so sorry for what a tremendous loss you are facing. I think of all the years I have been embraced by you all, and I wish I could hug you all strongly enough now. I will see you soon. Much love to each of you.
