I had no idea who he was when Ngoc Hue had introduced me to him. I didn't attend Ngoc Lan's wedding. Therefore, I didn't know who he was. Small world, isn't it? But when I found out who he was, I couldn't help but to ask him about Ngoc Lan. I wanted to know how she was doing and if she remembered me. And sure enough, his answer was yes, she did remember. And the fact that her favorite song out of all the songs I had recorded on the "Ngay Em Di" CD made it even more special.
On the day of her funeral, I went up to him and gave him a hug. I said how much I loved Ngoc Lan. He looked at me and said, "I know, em. She loved you, too." Just the thought of that still brings me to tears.
