Dad one week before he died

Dad one week before he died


I received my Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do on August 14, 2009, just a week before my father died. He thought it was awesome that a woman my age (45 at the time) could do something like that.

From the album:

I think it's awesome, too, Konnie, and I know your dad is still smiling with you. My dad passed on February of 1970...seems like a hundred years ago, and seems like yesterday. I loved him very much, and it is evident that you loved your dad very much, also. Thanks for sharing.

I think that is awsome too. I just started myself at 33 in shotokan karate. I believe my mom is helping me to do this since when we were small i wasn't able to. I know i will never be able to stand beside her like yourself but i know she is watching me and i'm doing it for her as well as myself. I think martial arts will help me with the meditation and focous i need to get passed this. We'll see. Your father looks like my mom, big smile and a great spirit.
