Kristen, your mom knew me as Faye Low. I married Wes Ong in 1974. My firstborn child is named Kristen. I was so sorry to hear of your mom’s declining health. She was dearly loved by all who knew her. I lost touch with her after she and your dad moved to Texas. However, the Woo sisters have been a vital connection. I have a vivid memory of your mom in a training class led by Ellen Chiu. I was an immature brat back then and behaved rudely in the class, being disrespectful while Ellen was bravely trying to ignore my distracting antics. After the class ended, your rightfully rebuked me. I deserved it and felt ashamed of myself. Your mom was a straight shooter as she stood up for the honor of God. Your mom blessed many of us! The memorial service honored her and glorified the God she worshiped. May you and your siblings be comforted as your loss is heaven’s gain.

I am so sorry to learn of your loss. I have known your mom since she visited our church in her college years. She is a very dear friend and will be missed. My prayers are with you, Danny, Mark and your families. I am grateful, unknown to us, God would put your mom and her sister, Sylvia on the same Alaskan Cruise my wife and I was on. It gave us the opportunity to renew our friendship and to catch up on our families. May God’s Love, Peace and Comfort embrace you and your families.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I have known Peggy since we first taught together at The Parent Child Training Center, later Trinity Christian School. She was a caring teacher, an esteemed colleague, and a trusted friend. David and I greatly valued our friendship with Bob and Peggy. They were wonderful support when David went back to school for a late in life graduate degree. They rented us a place to live, provided David with work and were a source of encouragement. One of my favorite Peggy memories was the morning teachers at Trinity showed up at her house, unannounced,, for an Over The Hill surprise 40th birthday celebration . As we now live far apart, we have stopped in from time to time. Peggy, you were a blessing to those who were privileged to know you!

I am so sorry for your loss. Peggy was one of the sweetest ladies. I met her at Thursday morning Bible study. She always had a hug. She teased me about how much I talk, on the morning we did our testimonies, she told me she wanted to go first so she would be able to give hers, LOL. I have missed her. She will be truly missed, but what a reunion in Heaven she is having. Prayers for peace and comfort for you during this time.
