Chong was amazing! Her outgoing, winsome, energetic personality drew me in. She had a sharing, caring way about her. Definitely one of a kind. Her flowers and plants flourished under her care. She knew how to live off the land and prepare delicious food. She and Ronnie had an amazing garden every year and it was apparent she loved preserving and preparing the produce. She and Ronnie raised a wonderful daughter, and she dearly loved them both. And it is apparent they dearly loved her. I deeply miss Chong, and look forward to seeing her again on Resurrection Morning. Until then, Ronnie, Kim and Ben take comfort knowing you are greatly ,loved.

Chong had a great sense of humor. I remember when she and Ron came to meet Pastor Scott and I. She looked in every room, nodding if she liked the décor and making a face when she didn't. We will continue to pray for you, Ron, and the entire family. She will be waiting for you. . .
