Laura Vo

Our mother, Võ Thị Kim Ngọc (Laura) Buddhist name Tâm Diệu Hạnh, peacefully passed away on the 6/26/2021 with her family at her bedside. She is survived by her two sons, son in-law, daughter in-saw, grandson, three sisters and two brothers. With our hearts broken, we find comfort that she is in a better place. May Buddha bless her soul.

Our mom was an unconditionally loving and devoted mother who lived with her dignity to raise her children to achieve their full potential. She was a respectful daughter to her parents, a loyal sister to her siblings and the kindest person to everyone. She taught us what love and dignity were, sympathy for others who were less fortunate. She was a single mother who worked tirelessly to play both roles of a mother and a father. She was beautiful, elegant and graceful. She will be missed immensely by our family and friends.

I can see from her smile in the photograph that she has Danny’s same upbeat spirit. My deepest condolences to you and your family, Danny. Your CCSF family is with you even in these remote times.

  • To Andy,
    I knew your dear sweet mother as Andy’s mother. In fact now, I asked Dung and her name is Laura. She was always so kind and sweet to me. I know she must have worked very hard to raise her two sons who have turned out so well. I was sadden to hear of her illness and am relieved to know that she is now at peace and out of the pain that she had to live with for so long. I pray that you and Danny are able to go on with your lives caring with you the kindness that she has taught you that she has lived with all of her life. May you continue to pass on her love to your son so that she will always be a part of his life as well.

  • Our dear aunt (Kim/co Ba – as we often called her) has been very close to us. She is a kind, genuine, and funny aunt. We have great memories about her and we will hold them near and dear in our hearts. Kim loved children. She was always really happy to see our children and was always very kind and generous to them. We always looked forward to her visits frequently during Thanksgiving and Christmas. She will be dearly missed. Love you, aunt!

    Danny, I have never known anyone that loves and took care of their mom the way you did. You are strong, empathetic, responsible, and you do what needs to be done. You are an inspiration!

    Danny, our thoughts and hearts are with you and your family.

    June 30, 2021
  • Mrs. Vo was more than just a loving mother; she also provided a strong paternal influence over her son Danny. The sacrifices she made as a single parent and the obstacles she faced as an immigrant will never be fully appreciated. I admire her for her strength, perseverance, and raising her sons in difficult circumstances. May this small giant of a woman rest in heaven, and may her family find peace and comfort in the days ahead. Sending my love to Danny and his family.

  • Oh my heart goes out to Danny and Aaron and the entire family.
    For all of the years that I’ve known Danny, especially during our college times, he has only ever expressed not just incredible respect and admiration of his mom, but also the deepest love. Danny’s adoration of his mom had me loving her. He would tell me (and all friends) how amazingly loving and supportive she was, how fun/funny she was, and hilarious stories about her and the family. I know this a great loss. How blessed to have had a mom so wonderful; may her spirit be kept alive in our hearts. DerekJr and I send loving thoughts and virtual embraces to family and friends. Danny, hold on to all of your beautiful memories and let her character and love live through you. ❤
