My parents attended a funeral today for an old friend's mother. I learned a little something about this mother. During the times before the Korean War but after World War II when the Russians had control of the North and the Americans control of the South, there was a lot of tension. People snuck in and out constantly. Also, there were many instances of people being kidnapped and taken North. I don't know if that happened the other way. This lady lost her husband to one of these kidnappings.
For over 50 years she has never learned what has happened to her husband. She was left with two children. One was ten and I don't know the age of the other. I can't even imagine that. She never remarried. May she rest in peace.
