Some of my favorite memories are from hunting for Gosari in mountains and the woods to see who can find the best ones. Then as an adult you filling my trunk full of them so I have it to eat when I got home.
You always wanting to be out in the open, the beach, the woods, or out in a garden. You probably didn’t realize how much I learned just from watching.
I remember feeling safe in your arms as a young child. You were the person I ran straight to as a little girl when Mom said I had to get shots in Korea. All I remember of that day was the feeling of the ground under my feet as I ran to get to you. I wanted to feel safe and tell someone about my brother crying and screaming from the needle (and I probably also wanted you to get mad at mom for it too).
I loved it when you would make kimchi and I would sneak by as a little girl and lick salt off my fingers. You would joyfully scold me (if you caught me).
I love you and you will be missed. I always thought we would have more time.

울엄마. 사랑하는 엄마. 언제나 자청해서 힘든일하셨던 엄마. 더 잘해주지 못해서 너무 미안 미안 합니다. 우리 열심히 살다가 그곳에서 만나요.
먼저간 딸과 그리운 식구분들, 친구들 만나서 춤추며 기뻐하시실 거라 믿어요. 우리 예수님 눈물 닦아주시고, 두 팔로 안아 주셨을 겁니다.
