My Dream
This morning after mourning for days for you my friend. After pouring my heart out I had a dream of you. Was it real or just a dream? It was so vivid and lucid I have to record it before I forget. You were moving and some of your family was already there. Some of your family was waiting, As we look through a multi paned window, we look out together. I could see big redwoods, calm and serene. A forest with redwoods so y’all we could not see where they stop. The bright light from above blinded us it was nice and warm. I saw a old Car seat for 2 and light blue leather and weathered like from the 70s seat baby blue. A really big video camera with a multi colored strap you said it belong to your dad but it was out side on the forest floor. As we gaze out the window together we speak of family and some random things. Someone female older is unpacking and making Korean food in the kitchen I can smell it. You asked that I come with you to another room. Your room in this big house and you get a call it is a guy family member telling you something. Not sure your upset but you toss your stuff you have in your hand into the top of a lamp into the light. Like when you and I used to go home and toss your stuff on to your small desk after a long day. I hear one of our friends mother in a Korean accent tell you not to keep me and you should know better. She tells you I have a lot to do and I am very busy. And not to keep me any longer as my family waits for me to get back. Then I awoke so abruptly! As I write this I have never cried so much. Was it really you sending me a message?Telling me your in a better place with your family. Not sure if or what this all means but I cried instantaneously after typing this. A screaming hysterical cry as if you were here with me in my room. As seconds go by things get clearer and what I need to do with my day and my life. Going to go exercise my brother miss you and carry you always.
I am not crazy I hope 🤞 but it felt so real.

There are so many things I could share about Andrew Jin Lee (Ejin) this part of his life and mine that I share is why I care so much about this person, my friend and the brother I never had. Andrew looked out for me at my lowest point of my life. While he welcomed me into his home and family. He welcomed me into his heart and the love that Andrew had for his family showed so much. When I had no where to live he and his parents let me stay with them. I slept on the floor in his very small room. There was a time before his aunt was staying with him and I was in his room.
I could hear him trying to talk to his aunt to cheer her up. By just talking to her to get her mind off the upcoming kemo. I really admire that about him. The level of care he had for his aunt. His character spoke volumes for the love he had for the rest of his family. To those that do not know his aunt passed from cancer. All the time before she passed he spent a lot of time with her just hanging out and laughing. I could tell they were close in a way that was special. He always did make it a priority to spend as much time with her as life would allow. Who wouldn’t want to have 2 loving mothers. His mother had the same infectious smile. When his aunt passed we visited her a lot at the cemetery. I am not a funeral person I told Andrew or cemetery. Andrew asked that if I could go with him so he could hang out with his aunt. Having spent time with his aunt I agreed. Back then I didn’t see it clearly but it hurt him more than some know. His heart was BIGGER than some can comprehend and he has carried more than a person should in this life.
He is a loving and brave person and that is how I will always remember him as such and love, live and carry the best parts of him with me always. Some might say you didn’t get to finish but I know that OUR artist has put all the right touches in all his works to make them beautiful.
I thank you and your family for helping me when I needed it
