Sending my deepest sympathies. Gomo (aunt), you will be dearly missed.
Gomo, I will treasure your wisdom, laughter, and how you instilled in us to be strong, confident, and proud of our family heritage, helping us to keep our heads up in times of sorrow. I remember how beautiful you looked in all those black-and-white pictures, even after the war-stricken days in Korea. I remember how you were dedicated and devoted to your family.
Gomo, rest in peace. We love you very much.

Your niece,
