Mom, Today you would have had 90 candles on your Birthday cake! We would have laughed together as you told me that would be way too many to blow out. While we ate cake together you would bring up all the cakes you made for me over the years. Of course the doll cakes were always my favorite. I would have given you a gift and of course you would have said that I shouldn’t have. This would have led to a discussion about Grandmother and how she always neatly unwrapped presents saving the paper under her bed to beautifully wrap a gift at a later date. I miss you daily along with all of our laughter. I feel so lucky to have had you as my mom. We always had such a bond. I love you forever and miss you always. Happy Birthday Mom. Love Jan

May 1, 2018 Mom, this would have been your 90th birthday. It seems that you have been gone forever because I miss you so much. I think of all the fun that we had together. Hwayeon and I have her niece living with us and going to school. She is 10 years old. I share with her often the things you taught me about life and about how to treat other people. Hana refers to you often as she knows how important you are in my life. Mark, Jan, Jill, and I decided to put your ashes in a niche at Palm Cemetery on Eastern Ave. We thought it would be nice to be able to go somewhere and visit and think about all the wonderful times spent with you. Along with the urn we are placing a picture that was taken of you and your children and Jan's children in 2006 at the Quail Ridge House. . Your urn has a picture of you when you were about 20 years old.....that is my guess. It is one of my many favorite pictures of you. I love you mom. Love Mike

This tribute was added by Michael Bement on 22nd November 2016 "I miss mom more than could ever be put into words. She was a great mother but far more. As a child, she taught me all the things a mother teaches her child but beyond the normal she emphasized that I should be kind to others particularly those who have less than we do. She was wise and, as a grown up, she gave me her opinion only when asked as that was her philosophy. She often told me that when children are grown the parents should step back and let their children make their own decisions without their parent's input. I believe and hope that I have used this wisdom with my own children. Mom loved people. Her friends did not have to fit a certain mold. They came from all walks of life. Her friends all loved her as she could always be counted on. I miss you so much mom. Your Son, Mike"
