Today is Fri. November 23rd, 2007 - since my cousins in Taiwan already launched a CHEN FAMILY blog in Chinese, we thought we would launch one in English as well that would be more user friendly to my Thai relatives in NYC and New Jersey since they don't read Chinese - it'll allow us in California to upload faster and to show pictures faster to our family and friends. This whole family blogging fever began after the passing of our grandfather, Chen Yen Hwa, 49 days ago. Through his sad ending, a new beginning was also born as our entire family came together to celebrate his life and to continue making him happy and proud by bridging all of our generations together as he would have requested. This blog celebrates him - Chen Yen Hwa, the life he lived and the love he shared for his wife, 3 sons, 4 daughters, 14 grandchildren, his 10+ siblings, extended family and friends. Gon-gon, we miss you.
To The Chen Family, far and near: To bridge our Chen love and Chen family from this generation onward, I hope everyone can update and visit often to see how everyone is doing everywhere around the world.
