Richard Kim Obituary

TIMELINE:
Friday 11, November 1909


PLACE:
ichard Kim "Our CLASSICAL MAN"  WAS BORN AT HONOLULU, HAWAII IN THE MORNING.


TEXT:
THE PASSING OF A "GREAT MAN", RICHARD KIM OCCURRED.

HE LIVED UNAFRAID AND DIED THE WAY HE LIVED. IN NOT ONLY OUR COSMOS OF A "CLASSICAL MAN", BUT IN HIS SUPER-NORMALCY AS A ROLE MODEL FOR A PROFESSIONAL "CAREER-SENSEI", BECAME OUR CENTRAL POINT OF REFERENCE.

NOT SINCE THE DAYS OF GICHIN FUNAKOSHI AND YOSHIDA KOTARA OF OKINAWA HAS THERE BEEN SUCH A VOID.

I, HIS LIFETIME STUDENT, FEEL THE MISSING OF THIS PERSON WHO PERSONALIZED ALL OF US IN MANY COUNTRIES.

WE, OF THE USA GOJU HALLS NETWORK, INT'L. PRESENT OUR 'WHITE LILLY' AT THE TABLE OF SADNESS NEXT TO HIS BELOVED WIFE MRS. MAY KIM OF SACRAMENTO.  THERE  IS NOT ONE OF HIS LIVING SPIRITUAL ALUMNISTS WHO CANNOT TESTIFY AS TO HOW THE YEARS AND HIS METHODOLOGIES HAVE EDUCATED US ALL BEYOND OUR INTELLIGENCE.

HE WAS A ZEN GRANDMASTER AND WRITER SECOND TO NONE ON THE GLOBE. WE ALL THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU OH, "HONORABLE MEJIN RICHARD KIM." (OSS! AND AMEN)
