As a volunteer at the Denver Art Museum, Seonghee was one of my dearest friends. Seonghee was a beautiful person, always kind, thoughtful, and making the best of her life. She would greet her friends with a bright smile and wide, outstretched arms. Seonghee will be missed so very, very much.

We met while volunteering for the elementary school. What started out as a chance meeting became a friendship not only for us but for our families. She treated my son as if he were her own. I'll be forever grateful. She will be missed everyday.
