Robert and A-young Woody have been our friends since our days at the University of Illinois. He was an Assistant Professor there when I was a graduate student in Chemistry. I was assigned to grade some Physical Chemistry exams for him when he was the undergraduate P-Chem Instructor. It was a very large class, as I remember, and the exams were quite difficult. A-young came from Korea and we got to know each other. At that time there were very few Caucasian and Asian mixed marriages so our friendship flowed together very naturally!

In early 1970, they came to visit us in Kentucky. Their son, Mike,  was a bit older than Pan-pan. They got along very well and we had a wonderful time together.
