All three of the aunties from the Joy Luck Club gathered and told Jing-mei that her mother had left her a letter alongside enough money for her and her father to travel to China and meet her twin sisters so that she can tell both of them their mothers story.
After Jing- mei finished playing the piano at a talent show, she felt immensely happy because she assumed that it would be the last time that her mom would tell her to “be a prodigy”. She would no longer feel pressured into having to play the piano anymore.
After Suyuan (Jing-meis mom) passed away, she left an open seat at the Joy Luck Club ever since. Jing- meis dad asked her if she would take her mothers' seat at the Joy Luck Club table which, Suyuan had first created when coming to America.
