Huamao’s journey from Laos to the heart of Oklahoma, has exemplified strength and grace. She leaves behind a legacy of love, tradition and family unity that will be remembered by all who knew her. 

 

Remember Me:

To the living, I am gone.

To the sorrowful, I will never return.

 

To the angry, I was cheated,

But to the happy, I am at peace,

And to the faithful, I have never left.

I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.

So as you stand upon a shore, gazing at a beautiful sea – remember me.

 

As you look in awe at a mighty forest and its grand majesty – remember me.

 

As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity – remember me.

 

Remember me in your heart, your thoughts, your memories of the times we loved,

the times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed.

For if you always think of me, I will never be gone.

 

-Margaret Mead

Nco Kuv:

Rau cov nyob, kuv mus lawm.

Rau kev tu siab, kuv yuav tsis rov qab los.

 

Rau tus npau taws, kuv tau dag,

Tab sis rau cov zoo siab, kuv nyob kaj siab lug,

Thiab rau cov neeg ncaj ncees, kuv yeej tsis tau ncaim mus.

Kuv tsis tuaj yeem pom, tab sis kuv tuaj yeem hnov.

Yog li ntawd thaum koj sawv ntawm ib tug ntug dej, ntsia lub hiav txwv zoo nkauj - nco ntsoov kuv.

 

Thaum koj saib nyob rau hauv kev ntshai ntawm ib tug muaj zog hav zoov thiab nws grand majesty - nco ntsoov kuv.

 

Thaum koj saib lub paj thiab qhuas nws txoj kev yooj yim - nco ntsoov kuv.

 

Nco ntsoov kuv hauv koj lub siab, koj txoj kev xav, koj nco txog lub sijhawm peb hlub,

lub sij hawm peb quaj, lub sij hawm peb tawm tsam, lub sij hawm peb luag.

Rau qhov yog koj ib txwm xav txog kuv, kuv yuav tsis ploj mus.
