활짝 웃는 모습이 눈부시게 예뻤던 하나언니,

몇년전, 제가 힘들어 할때 먼저 연락해주셨던 언니...
2019년 새해 첫날, 언니에게 받은 카톡을 아직도 기억해요. 아무것도 묻지 않으시고 그저 보고싶다, 괜찮다, 맛있는거 먹으러 가자...이 말들이 얼마나 위로가 됐는지 몰라요. 언니도 그런 누구에게 쉽게 말 못할 슬픔이 얼마나 힘든지 아셔서 먼저 연락 해주신거겠죠.

언니의 사려 깊은 위로..지금도 생각하면 마음이 따뜻해져요.
기쁜일에 활짝 웃으며 함께 기뻐해주시고, 슬플때 진심으로 같이 슬퍼해주셨던 사랑이 흘러 넘치던 언니가 오래도록 그리울것 같아요.

예쁜 언니, 언니와 함께 했던 고마운 기억들 소중히 간직할게요.

언니, 갑작스러운 소식듣고 너무놀랐어. 우리 작년코로나때만나서 테리랑라라랑산책도하고 린우드에서 염소탕도먹고 스시도먹고 언니가 엄마랑염소탕먹는영상 보내주고 그러면서 서로가 서로에게 여러고민을 터놓았었는데 언니가 작년후반때 취직으로힘들어할때 조금더 옆에서 힘이되어주지못해 미안해.. 12월에도 문자했을때 더 가까이챙겨주지못해 미안해. 커피라도 한잔하자고 떼써서라도 만나서 이런저런이야기 얼굴보고할껄.. 우리 산책하면서 얼른좋은사람만나서 같이놀자한약속 지키지못하고간거 원망하지않을께.. 언니가 좀더 자유로운사람이될수있단선택을했다고 거기선 행복하라고 말해줄께. 잘가 ! 우리 또보자!

My dearest Hana.

I still cannot believe you are not around. I know you are in a better place with no more suffering but so many people mourn for loss of your beautiful soul. We will always remember you and miss your humor, your kindness, and your big heart.

What an interesting journey we shared?
We met in 2013 in Korea as coworkers. Both of us were newly returned to Korea and worked together for short 3 months. I thought she was the most smartest, hardworking, and responsible person who managed to do anything she was asked or not even asked. We lost touch after we went separate ways. But she managed to find me and send me the most needed warm messages during my dark times.

Last yr, when I was going through my toughest time, she once again reached out. She knew just the right things I needed to hear to get my spirits back up. And it is because Hana, I regained my courage to continue my life and my life has completely turned around for the better. Then when Hana reached out to me end of the year that she was going through her dark times. I tried to be there for her but I just didn't know what to do or what to say like she did for me. It still feels like Hana is pulling a mean prank... and I'm waiting for her to tell me that she's just kidding. But it is time for me to let her go in peace.

Hana - I hope you are happy and brave wherever you are. I will remember the blessing you've shared with me. Love you so much.

Love
Jisung

My deep condolences to you all. I first knew Hana from instagram and her wonderful videos on youtube. We texted occasionally about Alzheimer's / Dementia as she was caring for he mom and I was doing the same for my mother for 3-4 years. She passed in her sleep last January. Seeing some of her cooking clips, I went out to find black garlic and she gave me tips . She even made a short story clip to me eating a whole black garlic and trying to enjoy it. We would sometimes share personal stories and unload about the frustrations and challenges involved with caregiving. I had hoped to send up a care package of assorted Hawaii crack seed snacks as she was really interested in trying some. I live in Hawaii. In later weeks I checked in to see if she was doing ok as I saw less activity on line and even shared that I asked my pastors at my church to pray for her and family. Seeing her name listed that she saw a IG story i posted was a good assurance . I was shocked by the news of her passing . I thought of her as dear loving person who embraced life with the good and the bad. Unselfish to do things with her mom and caring for others. Hana will always be remembered by me for being kind, open, honest and truthful and bringing lots of happiness to others. I trust that she is with Jesus and free all pain and problems of the world. And there is the blessed promise to believers of reuniting later with loved ones in Heaven. May God bless you all and give you peace and comfort.

I met hana online and we talked about a lot of things. Her troubles, challenges but also her joy amd happiness. My only regret is that I should have continued talking to her and checking on her..

She is a wonderful person and she will be missed. Even though our connection was a short one, she will always be part of my memory.

Hana was such a wonderful light. She was a hard worker in my yoga and barre classes. I am very sad to read this news and will miss her smile.

Rest in peace dear my one and only sister. Even though you've been more like a little sister causing troubles for this whole time, I realized I love you more than I had ever imagined. I am sorry that I couldn't be a better brother for you. I want to say so much more but I know you are now in the better place. I am going to stop thinking about "what ifs" and only think about happy times with you. It is hard, very hard but slowly but surely our family and friends will recover. You were never a burden to us, rather a blessing from God.

하지만 나도 나약한 사람이기에 누나 보고 싶은 만큼만 더 슬퍼할게. 앞으로 더 추억 만들지 못할 만큼만 슬퍼할게. 주님께서 내 마음에 누나가 없는 그 빈공간을 채워 주실 때까지만 그리워 할게. 가끔 내가 좀 한심해 보여도 꼭 우리 엄마랑 주은이랑 귀염둥이들 테리 라라랑 같이 오래 행복하게 잘 살아 갈게. 가끔 꿈에서 만나면 누나한태 짜증도 안내고 잔소리도 안할게. 누나 먹고 싶은거, 하고 싶은거, 가고 싶은데 가자. 이제 누나가 항상 든든하게 의지하였던 동생에게 다 맡기고 천국에서 영원히 쉬어.
