CAT Tracks for January 2, 2021

Posted today by Dr. Gemo Wong's daugher, Christy Shumaker, to his Facebook page:

Today marks the 1 month anniversary of the passing of our dad, Dr. Gemo Wong.

The last 30 days have been extremely difficult for us all. Every day we mourn and grieve. Every day we are reminded of the father we mom, her love and husband of 50 years. We miss him very much.

On behalf of the Wong family, we want to say THANK YOU for all the flowers, food, messages, letters, cards, phone calls and many other thoughtful gifts. To read how our dad impacted the many generations of people, not just in Cairo, but Southern IL, Western KY and Southeast MO (and most likely beyond) has brought us much comfort. We always knew how dedicated he was to helping and healing others; the importance he placed on listening and being compassionate. Now we know why. It's because of the love and respect he was given in return by each and every one of you. Thank you for showing him the truest form of humanity. What a rare gift!

One day, we hope to have the ability to gather and celebrate the life of Dr. Gemo Wong. For now, keep his memories alive by being a good human. That's what he would have wanted.

Thank you again,

Dialina, Patrick, Kirk, Gemo, and Christy
