Rest In Peace Dr. Cheng. Thinking of all the times we went on nice long walks to watch the construction of the new buildings or ventured outside by the pond to see the geese and ducks. I remember when you made the decision that I needed to learn one Chinese word a day so that I would become fluent. I remember working the entire day repeating the phrase Nǐ hǎo nǐ hǎo ma (Hi how are you) and we would laugh together at how weird I sounded. Not a day went by that we didn’t banter back and forth with laughter. I miss you so much! It was indeed an honor an pleasure. I love and will never forget you!
