I'm so sad and sorry! Jeesung was a great student. He was funny and sensitive. He paid great attention to classmates and made everyone around him feel comfortable. I will miss him a lot! My prayers and thoughts are with his family.

Dear Mrs. Kim,

I cannot begin to tell you how shocked I was when Nhi (Bi) wrote that Jeesung had died. Rebeca had told her.

Many times when someone dies the family members feel they have to say good things about the person who died no matter how awful that person was.
In Jeesung's case no one has to lie or pretend. Jeesung was a wonderful man. Intelligent, humorous, unflappable, kind--there are many good adjectives that describe him. These are the absolute truth. He was a good man and a good friend to Mohammad.
Above all he loved his family. His devotion shone through his writing. In my class last spring I had him practice English word order by keeping a journal. One time I gave him a book with sample paragraphs to copy.
One paragraph was about how much the person loved soccer (football), his favorite sport. I said now choose another sport and write about it.
"But, soccer is my favorite sport!" (I made his good friend Mohammad keep one, too.)
Jeesung wrote that some people did not understand his vocation--a professional soldier. He was a soldier for all the right reasons: he wanted to protect his family and his country. Though proud of being a soldier, his greatest pride and joy was his immediate family. He delighted in taking your son to the park once Jeesung was through with his classes for the day. He showed me photos of that son. He was so proud of that child! What a good-looking, intelligent little boy! Some day I hope that that son of yours will have just a small idea of what a good, kind, funny man Jeesung was.
I met you only that once when we came out of the W building together.
Dear Mrs. Jim. I am so terribly sorry.

My very best,
