Our amazing and wonderfully dedicated father was taken away when the heavens opened the skies to take him home. Chanhthy Luangsrinhotha was a long time citizen in Raymond, WA since 1989. He moved from Modesto, California with his family. He gave us wonderful memories of the life he lived. He lived a life of kindness, honesty, and perseverance. He came from so little, but leaves behind a legacy of greatness and honor. How can we cry? Only tears of joy, because of how wonderfully you lived out your life. Our hearts miss you, but we know you want the very best for us. It’s understood that you loved us. The very morning of our father’s last breath was Monday, September 10, 2018. We had woken up to see heavy fog and shortly after an opening of clouds made its way as shown in the picture. The picture was taken in real time a little after 7:30 a.m. Knowing that the heavens had opened to receive our father. Shortly before 10:00 a.m., my father took his final exhale. Our mom was beside him, and after Tol affirmed that it was okay to go, my brother Phoa also spoke the same affirmation and within seconds our father left us. He hung on far longer than he needed to, but it just shows the HEART he had and what a fighter he was. What our father leaves on our hearts is a gift that we can never possibly express in words, the significance he has pressed upon us. During the end, he was so angelic like. He was funny and amazingly sweet with the smiles and words he would speak to us. Our father accepted Jesus into his heart on July 4, 2018. He was in tremendous pain but, yet he went to see the fireworks in Tokeland. We never know how much time we have, but we certainly can live each day LOVED!
