Remembering Bob Chih-Pao Chuang

This past week has been a hard time for my family (of origin) with the passing of my Dad. We’re grateful for the kindness of prayer, comfort, and condolences already expressed and received during the past week. This time has been sad and hard, yet healing and bonding, even transformative for me. And I personally thank you, my online friends and acquaintances, for being a part of my life over the past 12 years.

My brother Deef and I hosted an online event to share about Dad’s life and legacy, as well as offer a glimpse into caregiving for my Dad during the past 2.5 years. You can watch the recorded video. Also, see the memorial page for more.

    May you and your family receive the Lord’s comfort. We spoke earlier about my father’s passing last summer.
