My two older brothers died. My younger brother, whose name is Yong-gwan, died when he was eight years old. He loved his older brother [Father] so much and just before he died he said to me, while holding my hand, “Older brother, I will go before you.”

I cannot forget this. [Father holds back his tears] I loved him very much. My aunt gave me bread and I wanted him to eat it. I waited all night to give it to him, but he died without eating it. I cannot forget that.
