According to Liou, “Mymy was my husband’s aunt. She treated her nieces and nephews like her own children. Your kindness is what is needed in this world. My husband’s family is suffering immeasurably.”

She released a statement on behalf of the family.

The family statement read:

I’m still getting on my nerves about what happened to Mymy.

She spent so many years going to the dance studio in Monterey on the weekends. She was happy to do that. But unfairly, Saturday was her last dance.

We start the new lunar year broken. We never thought her life would end so suddenly. Mymy was 65 years old. If you knew her, you knew that her warm smile and kindness were contagious. She was a loving aunt, sister, daughter and friend. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We appreciate the support of our neighbors and community.

It was signed, the Nhan and Quan family.
