Family History : 45th Anniversary
My father Chang Ta Kang passed away 45 years ago on July 14th 1965 when he was only 56 years old. I was barely 16 and my youngest brother ll months old. My mother had not reached her 40th birthday.
So much could be said - but no words could come easily.
So many tears could be shed - but only the permanent pain in the heart is felt.
So many kinds words for him had been expressed - but today only good memories are imprinted in our minds.
So many years have gone by - but time has been fleeting and waits for no man.
It is a pity that our dear father could not share with us on this earth our growing years and our achievements.
But memories of him and love for him have sustained our family for forty five years.
We have been missing him for 45 years!
And we feel that his light is still shining!
God has been great and merciful.
May his soul rest in peace.
