About Me

I was born in Sunflower, Mississippi where my father had a grocery store.  We were the only "pure" Chinese in Sunflower.    I attended the Chinese School in Greenville, Mississippi for a semester when I was 6 or 7 years old because I was not allowed to attend the white school in Sunflower.  I was allowed to attend the Sunflower school when I was 8 years old.  We left Mississippi around 1953.  I graduated from Yuma Union High School in Yuma, Az. in 1955.   I attended San Diego State College in San Diego.  I am married to Herb Hom for 50 years.  We still live in San Diego.   We have 4 children (dentist, civil engineer,policeman and doctor).  We have 13 grandchildren ages 16 to 1 1/2.  Our favorite sport is playing golf.  I would love to hear from people from MIssissippi.
