Please take a brief 5 minutes silence in memory of Dr.Chen together on this day where ever you are.
I am still welcome any personal or special note that you want to write to Dr. Chen. There is no dateline. You could write in the comment section at end of page, or simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Writing is my way of coping.
Below is my personal note to Dr. Chen, my Hero.
He'd touched my life greatly in many personal ways. He was my role model and my friend. I also would like to dedicate my Tulip Arts to him.
The last time PC and I saw you at the Star Lane house on the New Year's day 2007 was still fresh in my memory. I can still see you sat there in a chair in the family room talking to us. I sat on the floor at a sort of right angle to you most of the time and we had a great talk. And now I regret I could had stayed longer, I could had told you how much you meant to us.
You'd shown me that happiness lies in giving, than receiving. True happiness comes from spiritual wealth, not material wealth. I've learned the secret of happiness is giving, not getting. To get joy, we must give and to keep joy,
we must scatter it.
It is still hard for me to face the truth that you really, truly are gone. But I am sure you are at last rest in peace with God.You had so much love to give. You'd created the whole
new meaning of happiness in giving.
We shall miss you always,
Amie and PCGod looked around His garden
And found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face
He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He knew that you would never
get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb
So He closed your weary eyelids,
And whispered “Peace Be Thine.”
It breaks our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.
Perhaps the fact of life most conducive to living fully as a person is an honest awareness and acceptance of death. When we can embrace death as simply another aspect of the life cycle, we will give appreciation and value to each life encounter knowing that it will never occur again.
