James Tong and Mom

James loved and adored our mom.  They shared a truly amazing relationship.  Our mom passed away on 17 October 2000 in Toronto Canada.  To commemorate the 20th anniversary of her death, James had planned a family reunion.  But his own illness and eventual death on 3 October - two weeks before mom's day of remembrance - tragically ended his plan.   When I looked through my footage of James throughout the years, it is no surprise that his eulogy at mom's funeral moved me the most.  There he was, the loving son remembering his mother with tenderness and intense emotions.  I thought this would be a most fitting way to remember him - his love for our mom which was the foundation for his love for humanity. I think he will approve too.
