I am sad to know Chu’ Bao passed away. He was my spiritual friend when I lived and studied at CBC/WSU in Washington state (1996-2000). He helped me whenever I needed help! May God be with you always, Chu Bao!

I wish to pay my respects to the Tran family. I believe I have responded to the Tran home as an emergency responder with Richland Fire. I am not sure why some families have to endure so much tragedy during their lives. But I do know that the Tran family did their best to care for their family members, thru devastating illnesses. During emergency incidents I always observed that the family gave utmost care, love, and respect for each other. I wish the Tran family continued strength and love. You have my deepest sympathies.
