Pa-Chia and I are praying for the family. Unfortunately, we cannot be there to celebrate Phauj’s life and her homecoming to be with her Creator. Our Lord Almighty gives you comfort, peace, and strength during this hard time. There is life in Jesus Christ; we will see her again.– Jerry and Pa-Chia Lor
