Don't forget to tell Lee Dye that I hope he and all his family are well & that his oldest boy (Lee Kun is it?) is following in his father's footsteps & making an excellent name for himself. I suppose he Lee Dye is a grandfather several times by now. Is his father Hong Yuen still alive? I rather think his uncle (Long Yuen) has passed on.
