The Eulogy
My brother’s
      story…
    “Teresa Chay is a biophysicist who
 suffers from arrhythmia. She developed
 the condition as a child after rheumatic
fever damaged two heart valves. Surgery
 seven years ago replaced the valves, but
   she still takes daily medication and
     occasionally needs to rush to the
 hospital for electrical pulse treatment.”
“The Heart of the Matter.”

                 Mom and Ken at the USAir terminal
                  Video/Audio:
                  My brother says he inherited laziness from our father and guilt
                  from our mother. Those two sides are at war.




                 Mom laughing
                  Video/Audio:
                  Every time he thinks, “This is too tough,” he looks up and sees
                  that article about my mom.

My mom the professor

               Mom as a Post-Doc
               My mom did her high school in three years, her undergraduate in three, and
               her Ph.D. in two years. (They put a residency requirement at Utah after she
               left.)




               Mom as a professor
               My earliest memories of mom were her working in front of the computer,
               dialing a phone, and connecting it to a 150 baud acoustic coupled modem
               connected to a teletype, as I parked my matchbox cars on the upright
               piano.

My story…

               Me at Singer Learning Center
               I used to tell everyone, “My Mommy works there.” every time I saw a building
               at the University of Pittsburgh. (Or any building that reminded me of one.)




               Me with Mom
               My mom’s favorite story she used to tell her students.

My Dad’s Story
Sometimes he remembers to set
  up the tripod and the timer.
So about that surgery…

               Mom and Dad
               During the second open-heart surgery, her heart didn’t restart. My mom was
               under the knife for 18 hours. They thought she might be a vegetable.




               Mom and Dad
               My dad spent the days at my mom’s bed in the ICU recounting the day.




Broken Jewel                                                  terry chay, birthday
You forgot something…

Editor's Notes

  1. This is not my regular sort of presentation and the format is a Peh-chahch-ka—the Japanese predecessor to an Ignite Talk. In many ways this presentation is both the easiest and hardest one I’ve given. It’s the easiest because the format limits me to 20 slides at 20 seconds per slide; because I’ve actually wrote this presentation two years ago; and because practiced this presentation privately over ten years before that. It’s the hardest because I’ve never given this presentation publicly before and because… you’ll see why.
