He was a good man, always kind to me and welcomed me to your home as if I was family.
I remember coming over after school and almost nightly Shin would get home from work and hook up his boat and off he'd go fishing till dark. Man he loved to fish!!
I'm deeply saddened at your loss and send my love to the entire family. Kevin
