Jerry H.T. Liu
I have known Uncle Jerry since I was a child as there are photos of Vicky & Mabel at my birthday party in 1959! Of all my father’s friends, I thought Uncle Jerry was the coolest guy because he owned a spiffy little sports car! I was too young then to know that it was a Porsche, but I said to myself: one day I shall buy a car like Uncle Jerry’s! I was even more impressed when Mabel told me a few years later that he drove his brand new Porsche in Europe with all his darling girls in the car!
Since my parents and I moved to Vancouver in 1967, I saw Uncle Jerry whenever he visited our city. A surprise call from him to my father in 1969 brought Vicky to spend the summer with us. After Mabel moved to Vancouver, I have fond memories of dining with Uncle Jerry when he visited her and showing him around in Whistler. The last time I saw him was at Ingrid’s wedding in Hong Kong.
Dear Uncle Jerry, I want to tell you that I finally got my dream Porsche in 2014 and I used to tell my friends that there was this uncle in Hong Kong who have owned many Porsches … it was he who inspired me to have one! May you rest in love and peace.
Dear Vicky, Mabel, Peggy & Marinda, Here’s a photo of your handsome dad at age 42 sitting across the table from my beautiful mom at a social function 9.27.1964.
