To Bud and your family,
I am so sorry about your wife's passing--so young-although I did not know her, you spoke so highly of her that I wish we had met. Reading the guest book in her memory gave me an idea of how fondly she was remembered. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. thinking of you, from your cousin Patricia in Florida.

Bud and family,
So sorry for your loss. Though we only met Mi Sun once at your Mom's funeral, I quickly wished I had met her long ago. I know she was a wonderful person as I could see that in meeting your children. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I will miss my front yard conversations with Mi Sun. She was such a sweet neighbor. Last fall, I was chatting with her after her second surgery and told her that my Dad had just been diagnosed with stomach cancer. Although she was dealing with her own battle and had no need to think about anyone else, she grabbed me in a huge hug. The next day, a grocery bag of cancer fighting foods was brought to my front door. Her heart was huge and she will be missed. I am certain that she was a blessing to so many more that she met as well. Your family is in my prayers.
