Friday, will be three years we met. It was one of the best days of my life. Everyday with you, hard or easy has been the best days of my life really. I know my wording doesn't make much sense but neither does losing you.
Dylan and I love you and miss you more everyday and we always will until we are all together again. Thank you for everything you did and continue to do.

Love always,
Mandy and Dylan

Life is but a Stopping Place

Life is but a Stopping Place
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
To sweet eternity
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
But never meant to stay
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journcy finally ends,
We'll clam a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.

My dearest Kwang,
You said you love me with every molecule in your body. My love for you is that to infinity. Thank you for choosing to love and share your life with me. Thank you for Dylan. Thank you for every moment for everything we had and continue to have. My love for you will continue to grow. I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow. I want to say so much, yet have no words. Dylan and I love you so much and we are so proud of you. You are such a great best friend, husband, father, everything and I would do it a million times over. As I always said "Hugs, kisses, love, misses"
Until I see you again I will be loving you, love me.

Love us always,
Dylan & Amanda

Kwang's professional reputation preceded him while I and my office mates in the Greensboro NC Field Office looked on in awe of his ability to excel and succeed. We all knew that Kwang was destined for bigger and better challenges. And, that proved to be true! He will be sorely missed by all who knew him and by all who knew of him.
