Hi, my name is Cindy Wong. This past week on March 19th, 2023, my father Guo Ning Li went grocery shopping in Chinatown. At noon he was hit by a van at Wentworth and 24th St. At the age of 78, my father was still a healthy man. He would walk about a mile one way to Chinatown to buy groceries. Then he would come home and take care of his half-paralyzed wife. Sadly, he never returned home from this grocery visit.
My mother, Cailian Yu, didn't only lose her loving husband but her main caretaker. She is devastated! Adding to this burden is the cost of burial and funeral expenses.
My father was a well-regarded teacher in China. When he immigrated to the U.S., he became a caretaker for elderly people. This job was in stark contrast to what he did as a teacher, but he embraced this job and worked hard to care for his clients. He eagerly took up extra shifts when no one else wanted them. He was praised for his compassion and kindness under his care.
My father would not have wanted to leave my mom this way. He would have wanted my mom to be taken care of, just like his clients. Would you help me pass down the legacy of my father’s compassion by helping my mother during this difficult time with a donation of any amount? We appreciate the community’s extension of generosity and prayers as we grieve the loss of my dad!
