Dear Pam & Family,

I'm so very sorry for your loss, I don't know if you remember or not, but I worked at "The Point" in the former M.A. S.. in Transcription in the late '80's through early '90's. Dr. Chai was very nice & very kind. One of my best memories of him was at the M.A.S. Christmas/Holiday parties when everyone would bring in their special dishes, treats, etc. I recall that Dr. Chai introduced EVERYONE :-) to Lychee fruit---I'd have to say that anyone iwithin the majority of the hospital walls (& perhaps it's periphery :-) who wasn't familiar with it beforehand certainly got a sample of it & then learned all about it thereafter, not to mention that it was by far the healthier option over cakes & cookies! I know that you can certainly be proud of his 45 year legacy to our area Veterans. My thoughts & prayers are with you. R.I.P., Dr. Chai! Sincerely, Susan E. MacDonald

I'm very sorry for your loss. I worked with Dr. Chai at the VA. One of my finest memory of him, he said, "When I started here, I had black hair." He had a great sense of humor. He would also give good tips where to move your stocks. Dr. Chai was nice & kind. He was also very kind to the Veterans. My thoughts & prayers are with you. R.I.P., Dr. Chai!

My sincere condolences . Dr.Chai was one of the first doctors I met when I joined primary care at the VA. He was a great colleague and had a super sense of humor. He was always talking about his boys ,his love for his sons always shone through.
He will be dearly missed.
