"You’re always a source of strength and I love you …"
My deepest condolences to the Kim family, I’ve been praying alot, and my heart goes out to them. I don’t even know what what they must be going through right now, losing anyone is hard, but she played such a big part in all of their lives, it’s heart wrenching.
I can’t even begin to imagine what Kibum must be going through right now, losing someone who was like your 2nd mother, also, imagine how much pain he must’ve been when he received the devastating news on his birthday. She raised him until adulthood, and always showed him love and compassion, always taking care of him no matter how old he got.
Even now I’ll watch old interviews or shows when he spoke or called his grandmother and how helpful she always was, taking care of everyone. She was a very sweet, down to earth and loving woman, always referring to Kibum as her "pretty grandson" and always looking out for him in any way she could. To this day he still keeps a cute little note that says "Grandma loves Kibum" with him everyday as a source for great energy and strength, saying that he’d love her all the more.
I’m still so shocked from the news, and so heartbroken for Kibum, but I’m so proud of him for being so strong, performing so well and working super hard, even though he has so much emotions running through him right now, even saying ” my heart is still trying to come to terms with the fact and I don’t realise she’s no longer here”. I hope he knows that he’s not alone, that we love him, and that we’re all here to support and care for him.
On September 23rd the world didn’t just lose an irreplaceable angel, but it lost a wonderful mother, reliable sister, helpful cousin, generous auntie, fun loving niece, loving wife, beautiful daughter, and an unforgettable grandmother.
Rest in peace grandma Kim ♥
