我見 我聞 我思
結識何明通博士是在七十年代休斯敦中華公所的春宴席上 ，我們隣位而坐 ，這位戴有金邊眼鏡打上深紅色的領帶， 看上去就是一位彬彬有禮面帶笑容的教授學者， 多年來 ，他不但是我們侨社新聞版的要角， 他一生默默服務社區， 造福社會的精神 ，令人動容更是我們後輩學習的楷模。
何博士因長期臥床， 昨天下午帶著他的領結走完了他最後人生之旅程， 和他結缡六十年也於數月前離世的王大熙博士， 同享年八十九歲。
何教授伉儷是早年留美的留學生， 他們在靑春年華时代來到新大陸， 多年苦讀得到博士後加入德州医學中心， 貢獻畢生所學， 為社會國家做出巨大貢獻。
多少年來， 何教授夫婦參與創設老人中心， 舉辦大型健康講座 ，這是僑社一大盛事， 並且為長輩解決諸多健康問題 ，凡是華人同胞需要住院治療， 他一定會盡力協助安排， 每次我看見眾多的華裔長輩共集一堂 ，共享營養午餐 ，談天說地， 打麻將， 學國畫， 這都是何博士他們早年之策劃和貢獻。
今天我們社區不斷壯大， 各種社團也如雨後春筍一般不斷增加， 華亞裔在這塊土地上所做的耕耘 ，我們流下的汗水， 是有目共睹的成就。
何博士賢伉儷已經離開我們 ，她們交出了人生耀眼服務社區的成績單 ，是我們永遠的模範， 我們更希望有更多的何博士會活躍在我們的社區之中， 何博士夫婦已經在他們近九十載的豐沛閱歴中劃下完美之句點， 何博士， 請你一路走好。
Dr. Ho And His Red Bow Tie
I met Dr. Ben Ho in the early 1970’s at the spring banquets at the Houston Chinese Association. He was wearing a red bow tie with the gold eyeglass and with a big smile on his face. I could tell he must be a well-educated professor. After the dinner, we knew Dr. Ho was a professor at the Texas Medical Center and also chairman of the organization.
Since then he has become one of our news celebrities and his news is always on our local edition.
Dr. Ho was the founder of the Houston Chinese Senior Association and their service has sponsored so many activities and helped so many seniors to get through their medical difficulties. When people needed to go to the hospital, Dr. Ho always was there to help them to register as soon as possible. In many cases, he used his personal contacts to try and help our people.
Yesterday afternoon I received a call from our friend William Yeh who told me that Dr. Ho had passed away. I suddenly felt very sad. Dr. Ho and his wife Daisy Ho were together for sixty years. Both of them enjoyed life for 89 years. Daisy also passed away a couple of months ago.
Dr. Ho and his wife both came to America in the late 1960’s. After a lot of hard work they both got their PhD degrees and spent their whole careers in the medical research field.
They were very proud of being Chinese-American in this great land. Their contributions to our society showed how hard the new immigrants worked to build America together.
Dr. Ben Ho set a very important and high standard for all of us. Because of his loving care and dedication to our community we will remember him forever.
