Year number 5. How are you up there? Time seems go slowly. Life without you is never the same. It’s like the storm never passed but gradually I learn to dance in the rain. The fond memories of you and us remain in my heart and in my life. Miss you terribly but your love never leaves. Please take care of Sammy for me up there. Until we meet again, the love of my life??



From: Alicia Ranney Tuesday, May 16, 2017
Hey brother, it's been a while since I've been on here. Truthfully it still hurts to think about you, I miss you so badly. A lot of things have changed in my life since you left, I wish I could share them with you. I remember that you always told me to "be brave today" but there are a lot of things in this world which still scare me. I have decided that this is the summer where I go to see you, FINALLY! I am going to be brave and visit one of my greatest friends. Love you always!



From: Su Chun Liu Sunday, March 19, 2017
It is a bit scary not able to find you on this site. Even though with or without this site, I still remember you in my heart.It is comforting to be able to come here and drop you some lines. I know how much you like me to read you what i wrote. Happy birthday! Wish you were here to celebrate it with me and Sammy! Sammy's health is declining...It is very hard to see him in this way and imagine the life without both of you...love you always! Babe



From: Yuhlan Ma Sunday, March 19, 2017

From: Su Chun Liu Monday, January 23, 2017
Babe, This is the 4th Year. Time seems to go so slowly without you. But gradually I learned to cope. It is never the same without you. Just talked to Hannah tonight, remembering the laughter, and the love you gave us. Missed you terribly. Until we meet again(A houhui), love you forever.



From: Su Chun Liu Saturday, March 19, 2016
Happy birthday, babe! Went to a jazz ambassador concert hosted by army, thinking your trip to China with army band. Feel we are close in that way. Watching "the descendants of the sun", imaging that is the life you used to live in. Miss your presence every day but I know you will always be there for me and now you are better. With lots of love! Love you lots!



From: Yuhlan Ma Saturday, March 19, 2016
My dearest son, today is your heavenly birthday. God's grace will lead you home where we will meet again. May all the joy, love and peace with you. I am proud of you always and forever!



From: Yi Cole Saturday, January 23, 2016
It has been three years since you were gone. I often wondering where would you being doing now if you are still with us. I am going to NYC in the spring, so I will stop by and say hi to you. Take care and rest in peace my brother!



From: Yuhlan Ma Saturday, January 23, 2016
My dearest son, it's been three years without you. Today is a heavy snow day in NY but I hope the day you live is a sunny and beautiful just like your smile. I try to live stronger until we meet again. Rest in peace ; I love you forever and always.



From: Su Chun Liu Saturday, January 23, 2016
3 years have passed. Even though today remained as the saddest day of my life, I always believe that you are still there for me, watching over me from the above. Little by little, I m no longer afraid of the silence@ the house, I started to enjoy being with myself and traveling by myself, I learned to ask myself what I like and dislike, I tried to live at the moment with no regret, let people I love know how much I love them...you told me don't give up love. I will not because that is the most precious gift that you gave me. Until we meet again.....I will try my best to live my life to the fullest. Love you for life!



From: Su Chun Liu Thursday, March 19, 2015
Happy Birthday, babe. This is your 3rd birthday that i did not get to celebrate with you. Wish i could sing you the happy birthday song just like you did it for my birthday. Thinking of you and Missing you every day.....You will always be part of me. Love you so much



From: Yuhlan Ma Thursday, March 19, 2015
Happy birthday to my dearest son. Thank you for being my son. You are the most precious part in my life and I am proud of you always. My life is different without you but I will keep going until we meet again. Love and miss you forever!



From: Su Chun Liu Friday, January 23, 2015
Babe, The orchid still blooms after two years. Somehow i felt maybe it is a sign that you are still here with me. It gave me encouragement to live on every day. To me you were never gone, just went for a long journey. Until we meet again, I would carry your love and live my life to the fullest. Miss you terribly and love you forever!



From: Yuhlan Ma Thursday, January 22, 2015
My dearest son, it's been two years without you. You are gone but never forgotten. You are the best in my life. I am so proud to have you because of your kindness, courage, and honesty---. I feel you beside me and never leave me. In my heart, you'll always stay and never fade away. I'll remember your beautiful smile forever and ever.



From: Yuhlan Ma Friday, March 21, 2014
Happy heavenly birthday to my son Shan. I hope you are happy and doing well there. Recently, I visit NTUH where you were born. I still remembered that I was so happy when I first hold you in my arms.I will see you again, my loving son. Love you always and miss you forever.



From: Su Chun Liu Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Babe,
Happy Birthday! Sammy and I went to Oakland near the space center you took us for a hike. Thinking of you in the woods brought back lost of memory with you. I stopped by Ichiro for dinner and ordered your favorite Chirashi.
Wish you were here and doing all those things with me. Love you forever!



From: Yuhlan Ma Monday, January 27, 2014
My dearest son, it's been a year without you but I feel you all around me. You are my forever love. I will miss you and pray for you every day until we can see each other one day.



From: Su Chun Liu Thursday, January 23, 2014
Babe, Sammy and I are remembering you today at Asilomar beach where you ran with us. I hope you saw the yellow rose that we sent you. Miss you every single day. Remind myself every day what you have told me "Be strong!" You are not far away. Your memory is still very clear. You will always be with us. Love you and miss you so much!



From: Alicia Moore Thursday, January 23, 2014
Hey buddy! It's been a whole year without you, but the farm is coming along and soon we will have veterans on our farm, healing through agriculture. I know you wanted to be a part of it, but your memory remains with me and I am reminded every day of why I am doing this. Miss you.



From: Caroline Ma Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Dear nephew, Today would have been your 34th birthday. But you will not alone because your mom is going to spend her day with you and I just want to tell you that we all miss you terribly. Love, aunt Caroline



From: Alicia Moore Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Hey buddy! I hope you are celebrating a wonderful birthday, way up in heaven! I'm headed to SF this summer, I was hoping to see you again, but I guess we'll just have to postpone that meeting :o) Miss you lots, thanks for the inspiration; the farm is moving forward!



From: Yuhlan Ma Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Happy birthday! My dearest son. On this special day, it's always my pleasure and pride to have you on the same day 34 years ago. Your beautiful smile and wonderful heart that will remain always in our own hearts and the hearts of all that knew you. Love and miss you always.



From: Yuh-Fun Maa Wednesday, February 20, 2013
My Dear Nephew, Aunt Lilia, Cousin Michelle, and I reviewed some of our old photo albums over the last weekend and found many pictures of yours at the age of around 10. What I saw is a happy young boy who always smiled. As I indicated in the eulogy, you displayed an unusual combination of personal characters - joyfulness and patience. You patiently played with/took care of Michelle (not yet two years old then) and tolerated her occasional naughtiness. In some of the pictures you showed your serious side which somewhat reflects the maturity and perseverance in your adulthood. We felt sad but also enjoyed the moments of watching you at the most innocent time. We selected some pictures and will send to your Mom for her remembrance. Shan, rest in peace and we're all proud of you. Uncle Yuh-Fun



From: Caroline Ma Friday, February 15, 2013
My dear nephew, I’m back in sunny Southern California but the sunny weather has failed to lift my low spirits. How unreal and sad the events in the past three weeks! I remembered the letters you sent me when you first joined the army and trained in Fort Jackson, SC and began reading the letters again. In one of the letters you wrote “I passed my basic rifle marksmanship qualification test yesterday, it is probably one of the most important part of basic combat training…” In another letter you wrote” I passed my final APFT (Army Physical Fitness Test) two days ago now I’m just waiting for victory forge…” What an aspiring and confident soldier you were! My one and only nephew, I’ve always been proud of you and I’ll remember you till the end. Love, aunt Caroline



From: Rebekah Bennett Friday, February 15, 2013
Shan Wu, otherwise known as Wu Jiaoguan. I was recycled into your class and was struggling so much with my speaking. I hated every moment of speaking practice until I met you. You were so patient, so understanding of my difficulties. You helped me relax and be at ease with the language. Whenever I saw you, you had a smile on your face that was contagious. You helped your students and cared about our success. Thank you for changing my life. You will be missed.



From: Charity Willhoite Saturday, February 09, 2013
Shan Wu, I knew you as SSG Wu. During one of the hardest times in my life you were a mentor to me. You were a constant source of encouragement and your smile always brought me peace. It still does. Can't wait to see you again in heaven, brother. My condolences go out to your family. May God bring you peace and love during this season.



From: Caroline Ma Thursday, February 07, 2013
Dear nephew, We went to see you today. I put freshly cut lilies on the ground then you mom and I stood silently for a while. Emotions finally overcame us and we cried once more. Your mom murmured softly that she loved you and she would come to keep you company as often as she could. I wondered if you heard her words and decided that you must have because I felt your presence there and I knew you were watching us from heaven. Rest in peace. Our Shan. Love, aunt Caroline



From: Su Chun Liu Wednesday, February 06, 2013
Babe.It is an honor to know you and be part of your life. You have brought me so many fond memories and love. I will not want to trade any moment of it. I will continue to cherish the love you gave me and live up the legacy you left behind. Miss your smile, miss your hug, miss being able to cook for you, miss walking Sammy with you, miss watching movies in your arms...



From: Michelle Maa Wednesday, February 06, 2013
Dear Shan, Although I haven't seen you since I was a young girl, I hold very fond memories of you in my heart. I will never forget the wonderful cousin who taught me how to tie my shoe laces and the difference between confusing letters like "b" and "d". I am so sad that you have left us and hope that you have found peace wherever you are now. Love, Michelle



From: Alicia Moore Wednesday, February 06, 2013
Wu, my brother :) I cannot believe that we met almost a decade ago....had it really been that long? We always had fun together, thank you for being my friend, I will never forget our fun times. I loved you like a brother, and I miss you terribly. I pray to God that well see each other again and that this is only temporary. I always thought Id see you again on this earth, I'm sorry you were I'm such pain, brother. I'll never forget you.



From: Yuh-Fun Maa Wednesday, February 06, 2013
Dear Nephew Shan, Aunt Lilia and I still cannot accept the fact that you've left us. We just saw you a year ago in Taiwan. Your maturity, self-confidence, and strong built really impressed us. The Army training and experience had developed you into a positive, courageous soldier. We attended both memorial services in NYC and Presidio of Monterey. Your superiors and the brothers and sisters of DLI all recognized you as a great soldier and a fun friend. Despite of your relative young age, you've accomplished a lot. perhaps more than anyone can ask for. We're really proud of you. Rest in peace. Love Aunt Lilia and Uncle Yuh-Fun



From: Caroline Ma Wednesday, February 06, 2013
My dear nephew, My heart aches every time I looked at your handsome picture in your mom's living room in New York. Tears are in my eyes but my heart fills with so many sweet memories about your childhood. I feel you're still here with all of us because your image is everywhere. Your mom and I talked about your favorite food, music and places. Sometimes we cried and sometimes we laughed but most of time we just want to remember you! With Love, aunt Caroline



From: Yuhlan Ma Wednesday, February 06, 2013
My beloved son. There are too many memories to put into words. Although I will not be able to see, hug or talk to you, I know you are in heaven with our GOD. I promise you that you will never be forgotten. We love you and miss you always. Mom
