Deeply sadden by the sudden of our friend Misuk. She was a highlight of our visits to Panama City Beach from 2013 to 2017. Donna and I really enjoyed spending with her. We loved her sense of humour, her dinner parties and golfing with her. Hard to believe both she and my Donna are both gone now. Please accept my sincere condolences.

I have known Misuk for several years now. We met at the YMCA when her husband was in the last years of his life. She knew I worked for the VA, and would ask me about benefits that she could get for him to help his transition. Over the years, Misuk and I developed a friendship. She would talk to me every morning when she would arrive in the weight room. We would talk about Korea (especially the food), and she would usually tease me about singing along with my music. She always was friendly and witty as well. She will be missed by so many that I saw her interacting with each day.

I met Misuk at the YMCA quite a few years ago. Her & I shared locker space right by each other and became friends. We talked quite often about her grandkids & family when we saw each other. She had so many funny stories to tell. I enjoyed helping her out with projects at her home and she took great pride in her plants and making things look nice. I am going to miss seeing & talking with her.
Prayers to the family

Thoughts that fondly apply to Misuk

Friends
The joy of being friends is just
A simple code of faith and trust
A homey comradeship that stays
Even through the darkest days
A kind of faith that brings to light
The good, the beautiful and the bright
But Best and Blest and true and rare
Is having friends who love and care

We will always keep Misuk in our hearts

Much love to you, Donna, Sharon, Barry and family
