I am grateful for the Wong Tai Sin hospital and volunteers for their care. She was peaceful and at peace. A nice person was safe all her life, she went very nicely. Don't be sad, everyone please wish her well! She came from San Francisco, she really liked Hong Kong, really liked film, really liked Chow Sing Chi, she was a happy person."
