Sam was our dear friend. He will truly be missed. He was kind and considerate to everyone he met. He was always ready to help not only in the medical field, but also in the congregation. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve asked him for free medical advice! And anytime someone needed assistance moving, Sam was there to lend a helping hand. We will miss our friend, but the resurrection hope brings us much comfort. I know we will see him again. Jeremy and I will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear the news of your passing. I was privileged to work with you at IMVH and together responded to many emergencies where you exuded professionalism and skill. You were easy to talk to. I will always remember your love of diverse cuisines ( you never missed a potluck). I enjoyed preparing my jerk and curry chicken for you. I will always remember your smile. I can still see you walking in your long lab coat enroute to a code or rapid response. Rest Well,!

To my dearest brother and friend Dr. Kyung Hong. He was the epitome of humility, kindness and wisdom. I had a treasured opportunity to work along side him caring for one of the friends in an emergency. I am humbled and appreciated every moment. He reminded me by his actions that Proverbs chp16-19 Better to be humble among the meekThan to share the spoil of the haughty. My dearest brother we will meet again with your family and friends in the resurrection. Sister Andrea Sears.

I had the pleasure of working with Dr.Hong at Mount Vernon Hospital ... Dr.Hong was a loving and caring person ..he always took time to talk and have coffee or food with the people he cared about. You will be missed! My prayers go out to the family.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Dr Hong at Mt. Vernon hospital. I will always remember how calm he was regardless of the emergency that he had to respond to. I not only implemented that skill in my nursing career but also in my life. I have loss a coworker, a friend,but must of all a spiritual brother. To say he is going to be missed is a understatement. However because of the faith we shared, I know I will see him once more. May Jehovah give your family the comfort they need at this difficult time.

There was a magic time in Lake Ridge starting in 2002. It began with 5 mothers being asked to volunteer as the "Kindergarten Moms"; Elizabeth, Amy, Karen, Andrea and Tracy. Beyond the classroom, we discovered our children played well together including the younger and older siblings. We welcomed the Meruvia children from another Kindergarten class. The children pushed each other in matters of science, literature and creativity. The mothers, away from Kindergarten, got along fabulously too by supporting and trusting each other. The fathers, including Sam, were kind and supportive of this large group. They encouraged the Friday night get together dinners, pool days, birthday parties and field trips. Sam's dry wit, golfing prowess, and engaging smile was always a welcomed treat wherever we gathered. There are nothing but fond memories of a very sweet, educated man who could chat about all topics. His passing is a tremendous loss and the Hong family will always be in our prayers

So very saddened to hear this new's of Dr. Hong's passing. As a co-worker, friend and emergency care giver for my husband when a patient at INOVA MVH, he was "the best of the best" of all the physician's that I have ever met! What a loss to his family and the medical field. He will surely be missed by all. Rest in Peace Dr. Hong.

To the Family and Friends of, Sam Hong

As his spiritual sister I had great pleasure of knowing Sam! I would often try to read who he was “today are you Brother Hong or Dr Hong”. We would laugh because he learned what that meant. To his family I characterized Sam as my younger Brother. When I do that. It’s family.

He was content in sharing his faith. And making quality time to spend with his family. Upon his resurrection I will ask the same question. WHO are you today!
———-
The grief that shadows the loss of a love one is a surging sting. (1corinthians 15:55) Many questions can arise from this occasion. Why do we grow old? So many of life questions are answered from your own personal copy of Gods Word “the Bible “. Another question is why do we die, when our natural inclination is to live forever? When we read the Bible we find such promises as “the righteous will process the earth and live forever on it” Pslams 37:29. Or “ death will be no more neither pain or out cry for the former things has pass away Revelation 21:3,4

I worked with Dr Hong at Mt Vernon Hospital as our house officer , I started of being intimidated by his questions when you call him on a Rapid Response for a patient,until one day I was eating a a dish from my country Sierra Leone , the smell is awful but it’s taste is awesome. Dr Hong came in the kitchen and asked me what I was eating , I asked him to join me . He was hesitant to try but he sat down and tried it , that was it Dr Hong , he will always ask for a dish or give me money to prepare him a dish. His humility was remarkable.He once gave me a joke , about the dish “Cassava Leaves “that his wife was also hesitant to try it and ask him not to bring it home because of its smell , he convinced her to taste it, when she did ,she was begging him to bring some more. The dish is called “Cassava Leaves”
I last worked with him 7 years ago and always know that he will always ask of me to prepare him a dish ,when ever he sees me not knowing it will not happen again.
Best memory for me is “ I’m still using your skill you taught me in inserting an intravenous line , and I’ve excelled in it “ RIP DOC .
May God perpetual light shines upon you in heaven and May he heal your love ones you left behind.This is a big loss for any medical facility he serves.
