A BEAUTIFUL MIND
By: Patrick Hsu
Every week my family and I visit Michael's memorial at the Kaufman Cemetery. If you try finding it, look for a large statue of three men standing back-to-back holding a bible. His memorial is beside it: decorated with roses, stones, angels, and a holy cross.
The temporary mark entitles: Michael Hsu (April 7, 1989-July 19, 2005).
While my parents are decorating Michael's memorial, I kneel down, close my eyes and pray. I shall recall the life of a bright, joyful, faithful, and loving young man; a friend, son, cousin, nephew, brother and a son of God.
His name is Michael Hsu...
This is the last visitation/conversation I had with Michael before I left for Michigan:
Michael cried out loud in agony; we comforted him.
"Patrick," he said, 'You're a great brother.'"
I said, "No -- you're a better one. You showed the miracles of God to hundreds of people. When I'm in Michigan, I'll write a testimony about you, when I come home, I'll read it to you."
He managed to write: "I trust in God, for Jesus loves me." He said, "I love my family, I love Jesus, I love everybody, take care of Erica for me.'"
I grasped onto his hands; he had a firm grip. Tears dripped from my eyes.
Michael met the Lord on July 19, 2005 about 5:50 A.M
Because of Michael's life-long inspiration to many, my cousin in Michigan was baptized and also my mother and father. His money was sent to the Cancer Researching Fund for further research; thousands were donated. Michael survived a long one and a half years through our loving neighbors, family, friends and church members. His room is now a memorial. I wrote this testimony to admonish you and others to follow God's Words forever.
Michael read the Holy Bible to Erica, so I do the same thing. I believe God wants me to become a missionary doctor; He showed me through Michael. Even though Michael suffered deeply, he enjoyed his life more than he suffered. There is much to be known about Michael's life. Someday everyone here will be reunited with Michael, and Praise the Lord forever, in God's mighty arms in the Kingdom of Heaven. We, the Hsu family, thank every one of you deeply for your care and support. You will be in our thoughts and prayers forever.
"Well done, thou good and faithful servant: Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord." (Matthew 25:21)
God Bless You All! Amen!
PLEASE HELP US HELP YOU SHARE THE BEST NEWS GOD HAS FOR EVERY PERSON BECAUSE...
JESUS DID IT! and...
Remember: All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity. (Matthew 6:19-21 is our assurance)
