It was less than two weeks ago that Ka-duc Luong wrote here about his experience fleeing from Cambodia as a baby with his mother, and told of her incredible bravery and perseverance to save her family. My deepest sympathies now go out to Kai and his family, upon learning that his mom has unexpectedly passed away. Kai has gone to France to attend to his mom, Tu-nghi Luong’s funeral arrangements. They will have a traditional Chinese funeral in the next few days and his mother will be cremated. Dearest Kai, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family.
