Wynne’s good friend Young recently got married over Labor Day.  Helen was supposed to be the flower girl.  But unfortunately we weren’t able to attend because I was having back issues.

However, Young sent us the dress and accoutrements (including a little flower girl doll and a beautiful music box that has Helen’s name handpainted on it).  And she asked if we could take some photos of Helen in the dress for them.

This past Sunday, we went to Nai-Nai and Yieh-Yieh’s house (i.e., Chinese for Nana and Papa), and my father took some photos of Helen in the dress.  I know Wynne would be beaming with pride and joy to see these.  Here are a few:

Two Chinese Characters video dedicated to Wynne October 8, 2011

Thank you Two Chinese Characters for dedicating your latest video (“Taiwan is not Thailand“) to Wynne.  I know she would have enjoyed it greatly, both the message and the humor.  🙂


From their YouTube page:  “Dedicated to the memory of Wynne Wen-ren WU 吳問仁 (1975-2010), a traditional Chinese character & radical teacher.”

FYI, Jonathan Weinstein, one of the “Two Chinese Characters,” originally hired Wynne at BHSEC.  And several years ago, he also came and stayed with us over a weekend so that he and Wynne could collaborate on a karaoke video about Chinese New Year and the Year of the Pig.
