With a heavy heart, we ask for your help.

On January 10, 2018 our dear friend MiMi tragically lost her mother. Jum Sum Yim, was struck and killed as she walked home from church, in a hit and run. Leaving her 4 children and grandchildren in despair.

As you can imagine, the family is grieving right now and the last thing we want them to worry about is finances.

Funeral expenses are only the beginning for this family. 

Please continue to pray for Ms. Yim’s family to find peace during this time. 

Please consider helping her family in their time of need.

Today, February 1, 2018 was the preliminary hearing where Geum Min stood before the Judge. Unfortunately, she is still out on “supervised release.”

Absolutely NO remorse was shown by Geum Min in Court today, as she encountered the Yim family for the very first time.

She struck and killed Ms. Yim who died in the same hospital Geum Min works at; while never reporting to authorities of her actions, but instead declaring it was ICE she ran over and dragged 193 feet.

By no means is it fair to say she should be released under supervision. We can only hope and pray justice is served and she faces time behind bars.

(The intent for today’s preliminary hearing is to determine whether there is enough evidence in order for the defendant, Geum Min, to stand trial).

The next hearing will be held on March 27.

The Yim family is most gracious for everyone’s kindness and generosity during this difficult time. We have agreed to close the Go Fund me to reimburse the Yim family for the funeral expense.

Thank you and God Bless you all.

Thank you all so very much for your contribution in assisting with the funeral expense.

We have agreed to keep the Go Fund Me open through the trial date of February 1. Where Geum Min awaits trial. If convicted she faces up to 7 years in prison. Which certainly is not enough time for taking away Ms. Yim from her beloved family.

We are all sincerely grateful by the overwhelming love and support that’s been displayed these last few days. Please continue to keep the Yim family in your prayers.

As of today, Friday, Geum Mim was discharged under “supervised released” due to the fact that she thought she hit ice. Meanwhile, she ran through the stop light hit Ms. Yim and dragged her body for 193 feet, then clocked into work at the same hospital Ms. Yim was taken to!

She had a strange feeling she hit something more than ice, her co-worked told her she was over reacting and her husband did not encourage her to report it to the police. Once it was broadcasted that Ms. Yim was the one who was hit and pronounced dead on Parsons Blvd.

As you can imagine, we are all VERY upset with this outcome and can only hope and pray justice is served.
