Atlanta Spa Victim Yong Yue and Peterson Family

I am the youngest son of Yong Yue, one of the six Asian-American women brutally killed in the recent mass shootings in Atlanta, Georgia. My mother was a Korean-born American citizen who was hatefully and violently murdered.  Mom was an amazing woman who loved to introduce our family and friends to her home-cooked Korean food and Korean karaoke.  Will miss joining mom on her weekly Sunday routine to the grocery store and traditional Korean dinner.  She was always kind-hearted and willing to help everyone she encountered.

The world will throw you trials and tribulations to test you, but this test feels so unfair. We are still in shock over the violent murder of our mother, but through our grieving we are making plans to memorialize her, bring our family together, and resolve her financial matters.  Nothing could have prepared us for this tragic moment that has created immediate and future expenses that we could never have imagined.

Funds raised will be used to assist with managing mother’s affairs for her home, associated costs for our family to travel to her memorial, as well as going towards her memorial service costs and her personal affairs for the immediate future. We sincerely ask for your fervent prayers for strength and courage as we endure the days, weeks, and months ahead. We thank you for your love and support as we prepare for justice to be served for mother, and the other families victimized, as we begin the healing process.
