Sun Cha's family asked me to serve as organizer for this GoFundMe. Here is her story, as written from her family:
On Tuesday March 16th in Atlanta, Georgia, my grandmother, Sun Cha Kim, and seven other victims were brutally shot and murdered by Mr. Long. This senseless tragedy has caused my family and I an immense amount of pain, our world is forever shattered and tainted by the actions of Mr. Long. My grandmother was an angel, to have her taken away in such a horrific manner is unbearable to think about. As an immigrant, all my grandmother ever wanted in life was to grow old with my grandfather, and watch her children and grandchildren live the life she never got to live.
I would like to tell you a little about my grandmother. She migrated to the USA from Seoul, South Korea to provide for a better life for my family. Like many asian immigrants, she spoke very little English and worked two to three jobs. This took immense courage and my grandmother was a fighter. She was married to a loving husband who she planned to grow old with. She has two children. A loving son, a loving daughter, and three beautiful grandchildren. Outside of our immediate family, everyone that met my grandmother loved her dearly. She was pure hearted and the most selfless woman I knew. She represented everything I wanted to be as a woman, without an ounce of hate or bitterness in her heart. People that were close to me, knew that my grandmother was my rock. To have her taken away as a perfectly healthy elderly woman by such a heinous crime broke my heart. I will never see her again but I am left with only happy memories of her and the beautiful life she lived. She never forgot to call me once a week to say “Stay strong in life... when you’re happy, I’m happy.”
Any support we receive is greatly appreciated. Donations will help us provide her a beautiful memorial and funeral. Words can not describe how we feel, along with the other victim’s families during these hard times. You can also help by raising awareness and coming together as Americans to love all who love all.
The daughter of Suncha Kim, Daisy Song, will be withdrawing the money on behalf of the family. Please respect the family's privacy at this time.
