Love.that's the greatest treasure and gift that my mom has left for us.
My mom, Anh Ngoc Le, was born on January 20, 1939 in Saigon, Vietnam. She came from an upper class family, in which her dad was a director of a national bank in Central Saigon. It was by chance that my mom met my dad. My dad used to work for her dad and often take a ride in her dad's automobile on his way to work every morning. Then, they (my mom and dad) met that one fateful day and fell in love. My dad did not come from the same class family as my mom. His family was poor and he had to support his family at the time. However, they managed to get my grandfather's blessing to get married and start their own family. After almost 60 years of marriage, they have altogether 8 children and 17 grandchildren.
My mom has lived a not-so-easy life after she got married. It was in the Vietnam-American War era that my dad served in the military for the South Vietnam regime. After the war ended, he went to the "Re-Education" camp for 6 years. At the time when my dad entered the Re-Education camp, my mom was still carrying me in her stomach. All alone, she had to take care of the entire family with 8 kids and her mother-in-law.
My mom struggled day-by-day to support her children. She has had multiple jobs like, food vendor, janitor, housemaid, etc. to keep her children well-fed. Even in her toughest time, she loved us and took care of us in the best way she could.
With me being the youngest child in the family, my mom is so special to me. She always wanted me to be happy and would do anything to see a smile on my face. I still remember when I was little, my mom occasionally took me out for a nice treat like an ice cream cone, a hot bowl of my favorite soup, or a box of cookies whenever she got paid.
After all her children had grown up and started to have their own families, my mom continued to spread her love to her grandchildren. She took care of most of her grandchildren at home for all of my brothers and sisters. Every weekend, everyone would gather at home to enjoy all the foods she cooked for us. We were very lucky to have such a great mother/grandmother, and even luckier that we were able to spend so much time with her at the end of her life.
Now, mom is no longer with us, but we know that she lives on within our hearts and through all the memories we have. Words cannot express how much she meant to me and my family. I know that she is watching us from above and is with us in spirit. Let us remember Anh Ngoc Le as the loving person she was and celebrate the life of a great woman as we honor her memory today.
The poem below is our final tribute to the love my mom has bestowed upon all of us
