My deepest condolences. It’s not common in Asian culture to say those 3 words to parents or children. After 2 years of studying in the UK and observing all my foreigner friends who always ended their calls with their parents with those 3 words, I told my mom about it. She started to say it to me and my brothers. She passed away last year and I’m really glad she started to say those 3 words a long time ago.

You’re most welcome and thank you for sharing your beautiful story with me. It really means a lot.
