Mrs. Han always made me feel welcome in her home while growing up. She was such a sweet and wonderful and kind person. Sending my love to her family.

Kyung Hi, I’m so glad that that your Mom, Nancy, and I all had a meal the last time we were all in town. Mrs. Han was the last parent of our high school friend group. I know Dr. and Mrs. Breaux, Rev. and Mrs. Marvin, Mr. and Mrs. Roberts, and Dr. Han welcome her home with joy. And now I finally know her first name - always only Mrs. Han to me! Love and virtual hugs to all the Kyungs.
