Not sure what to say?

Eddie, I am very sorry for your loss. Your mother is such a beautiful soul. I remember her showing me much kindness when I would come over to your place during high school. May she, your father and Diana rest in peace, my friend. Blessings,

I am deeply saddened by Mom's passing. She was the most loving and kindest mother in law to me. She and her husband Robert raised two wonderful children and I was blessed to fall in love with her daughter Diana. Mom was by our side in good times and bad times and her love always gave us hope. She adored our daughter Jillian and never missed an opportunity to spoil her. May she rest in peace.

We are so very sorry for the loss of your mother, Eddie. Our parents were old and dear friends of many years and she will surely be missed, but never forgotten. They still reminisce about the wonderful hostess she was and the amazing cooking skills she possessed. They were the lucky recipients of many delicious New Year’s Eve meals and memorable celebrations thanks to your mother. We will always remember her happy nature and kind and gentle spirit - she was truly a blessing to those who were...

Many condolences and fond memories of auntie.

Dear Eddie, we are sad for your loss of your mom at this time, after having lost your dad and sister Diana. I don’t find right words to comfort you at this difficult time for you. She was the best mom she could be for you, and her love for you may live through your life. You have done your best to care and comfort her in many late years. You were her joy and pride to her. May she smile and Rest In Peace! Love you, auntie bj.

Our Beloved Aunt,
It's been a long journey from Korea to the States in the 1950's to fulfill our desire to succeed. You made it and led us to where we are now.

Even at this time of pain and sorrow, we remember the joy, the laughter, and the smiles we shared together.

Have eternal rest in peace.
