I am deeply appalled at the sudden death of our good friend, Sohn,
HeeJung who suddenly passed away early this morning on December 13,
2006. He has lived a 58 years of short life, survived by a loving wife
with two daughters.
He was such a bright, amiable and generous guy that everyone wants to

he loved to advise and get along with so many friends.
All of our friends in LA was surprised to hear he had stomach cancer
in early March. He was the strongest and healthiest guy among us,

third operation after the cancer transmitted even to colon. Lately he

friends went to see him two weeks ago, he was so weak, lying
motionless with a breathing hose inserted thru his neck, seeing the
guys in deadpan face. No one could imagine he became like that.
It is a terrible loss to us. We miss his always smiling face. He left
so many memorabilia I want to keep. Such a good guy left us this
