    It is such a blessing to have known Uncle Peping. I will cherish the wonderful memories we have of the summer camping trips we used go on together. We are so thankful for the bond our families made, the LAUGHTER we shared (and still share). The integrity, and LOVE of Uncle Peping’s legacy lives on in all of his family, and especially in the children he was blessed with. His daughters: Claire, Lori, and Lora.
