Farewell Mr. Kong

I've been exchanging email with friends in HK, surfed the web for information, and contributed to a site that was set up just to pay tribute to Mr. Kong. I am amazed by the shock and outpour of emotions and the effort to organize the memorial services. If Mr. Kong is watching us now, he would have been pleased. It gets to show how one person can touch and shape so many people. Over the last 45 years, Mr. Kong has touched tens of thousands of students and their parents and colleagues. Young and old, from 15 to 65, his students are all in mourning. It truly is amazing. Mr. Kong has left a legacy. A true legacy among us.

Rest in Peace.
