Dad's Last Wishes

I saw Mrs. Emerson at the United Supermarket in April. I had not seen her since 1993 when she was my accounting teacher at Cordell High School. Mrs. Pat Emerson smiled warmly and said she wanted to mail something to me. When I received her letter, it was a beautiful article in the Cordell Beacon written by Brooklynn Peek on February 9, 2022 about my father, Dr. Chiu Shang Tsai.

From small-town archives to big-city journalism schools

They showed me all of their old haunts: the Big-a-Burger, the golf course, the farmhouse where my grandmother grew up. My granddad also took me to the office of the Hobart Democrat-Chief, the town’s only newspaper. It was once owned by his father, then by his brother and today by his nephew.
