Memories Timeline


  1. Growing up in the Bronx church, she was the constant every Sunday when my family went there. Pastor Yoo and her were definitely a team. I definitely have some fond memories of the Bronx Church, which was a significant part of my childhood.

    I would like to extend my condolences to Pastor Yoo, Sunny and the extended family.

  2. To all family and friends of the deceased,
    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Many have found true comfort in the pages of God's word the Bible (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). In God's word we find the promise that we can be reunited with our loved ones (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15). The Bible tells us where this happy reunion will take place (Psalm 37: 11, 29; Matthew 5:5). We are told why we die (Genesis 3:17-19; Romans 5:12), and that Jehovah, the God of the Bible (Psalm 83:18), will end death forever (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3,4). At John 8:32 Jesus said " and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free". For more information please visit the website jw.org.
