Memories Timeline


  1. I remember Xinsheng, always pleasant, kind, joyful, graceful and lovely. I remember the expression of joy on her face as she watched the dolphins in the water during our boat trip at Virginia Beach. I remember she enjoyed our tour of University of Virginia with Wei and my daughter and my daughter’s very young toddler son. I remember once joining her for morning exercise. I was happy that she had invited me into her space. I remember her cooking every day and sometimes making delicious dumplings. I remember the smile on her face when I introduced her to my friend, Judy at a meal we shared. Xinsheng and I did not speak the same language, and she was delighted to hear me say her name. I am glad to have known her. I miss her, and I know her family and many others will miss her.
