Thank you for bringing so much light and joy to this world. I still remember you calming me down while I was studying for Step 1, sitting outside of Starbucks, telling me everything would be okay. You had a way of making everyone feel better - including one of your awesome hugs, your laughter, and your ability to listen. I miss you, Sey.

I am devastated. Dr. Park visited me often when I had a GI bleed and in the hospital. He soon became a friend and I recommended him to my 28 yr old son for a doctor. My son was also deeply saddened. I am so thankful for meeting him

Sey was a young man full of life and aspiring to be a great physician. He went above and beyond the call, to go the extra mile, and to make every effort to positively affect all whom he came in contact with. Being the one over recording all of the Medical Lectures for the past 7 years, I had the chance to have many interactions with him regarding recordings online which are used by the students to study for their exams. One of my fondest memories was when I saw him in Ocala at the Ipanema (Brazilian Steakhouse) restaurant. My dad had taken my wife and myself out to eat and we saw him there. He came over and greeted us and went on & on about how much he appreciated all that I had done to help him pass his exams. Regardless of who you are, if you knew Sey, your life was changed by who he was and how he treated you. May he rest in Peace and may his life live on in the memories that each of us have of Sey.

Sey Hee and I were in 1st and 2nd grade multiage together and we would play on weekends a lot. As we got older we didn't see each other as much but as I started dividending in high school i'd run into him and he was always so polite and happy. I saw him in town eating with his father towards the end of 2017 and chatted for a few min and he was the same as always. He was always a wonderful person to be around and was so full of life. Im glad i was able to see him and cingradulatr him on his accomplishments at UF. Rest in peace Sey Hee.

Sey Hee was a third grade student of mine. Once he left Keeth Elementary he came back to visit his old teachers. I have many endearing stories to tell of Sey Hee to reiterate the kindness and compassion he had for every one. He once said he would go into geriactrics so he could take care of us. I love Sey Hee and the world will be missing a wonderful man who would have made a difference in medicine and the world!

I saw you two days before your passing, just passing each other by in the hallway during each of our morning rounds. You were your smiling self, and seeing you and returning your smile made my morning a little brighter. I keep wondering now what else I would have said, if I had known. Thank you for touching the lives of so many, whether in ways big or small. You are missed by so many.
