    Thank you Riggs Sa Bom Nim for the update and for bringing him to the KDJSS last November. I know that meant a lot to him as it did to the rest of us to be able to see and speak with him again in person.
    Wilbourn SBN, a great example for all of us, will be dearly missed, but he is home in heaven and rejoicing with his Lord and Savior. My condolences to his family and fellow Moo Duk Kwan brothers and sisters for such a loss. Mrs. Wilbourn and Lindsey, thank you for sharing him with us and for allowing him to listen to the message I left for him. I will be praying for you and for all of us who will miss him.

Respectfully Submitted,
