Kyong, you are a beautiful women inside and out. I will miss your smiling face every day as I walk past your house with Shelby on our morning walk. I already miss your stories whether it be about flowers, vegetable plants or military life. It didn’t matter what the subject we would find laughter. I will miss you so much. Barb and family
