I’ve experienced a lot of interesting and impressive stories from my work at the UN Memorial Cemetery in Korea since 2004. Whenever I meet a bereaved family of the interred at the UNMCK, I feel sorry and moved due to their love to the family.

On October 19, 2005, Mrs. Sheppard visited the Memorial Cemetery with her daughter. However, she was not alive, but a handful of ashes. I could be told by her daughter of her last will to be buried with Mr. Sheppard, her husband who has lied at the UNMCK since 1951.

She was pregnant when Mr. Sheppard left her for Korea to participate in the Korean War in 1950. She gave birth to a baby girl without her husband a few months later. He was killed in action in 1951 and she had remained single until she died.

Finally, the whole family could get together. Her daughter spoke between sobs that Mrs. Sheppard must have been happy to meet her husband and to stay with him forever.
