I am so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Wong at the Tumor Boards at Mercy Hospital a few years ago. He was a kind, compassionate professional. My sincere condolences to your family.

Although I have never met Mr. Wong, the love, kindness and thoughtfulness I have experienced from his niece Tiffany (my co-worker) shows what a loving and wonderful family unit you share. My heart is with all of you.

Beverly and family. I was very suprised when I saw in the paper of your husband's passing. He was my pharmacist when I was having my chemo treatments 10 years ago. I always thought I was so lucky to have such a caring pharmacist during this time in my life. You and your family will be in my prayers.

I am shocked. My deepest condolences to your family. I had the honor of working with David at several different pharmacy locations. He was a man of honor and integrity. He loved his family and his beautiful wife. David I will miss your silly laugh and wonderful smile. Thank you Lord for the honor and privilege of working with David. You are now with Jesus. I'm a little jealous. See you again soon my dear friend.

Beverly and family - I was so sorry to hear of David's passing, but thankful for his strong relationship with the Father and know that David is at rest in the Father's arm. David was always kind to us at Youth for Christ and I remember the last time we saw him, he was bringing us a car load of office supplies that he wanted to donate before moving to Sacramento. What a blessing you both have been to us. We will be praying for you.
