Shanna Castro, July 21, 2021 Every person has a legacy. You may not know what your impact is, and it may not be something that you can write on your tombstone, but every person has an impact on this world. While I never knew Mr. Khim, I do know his daughter - Sarath. Her character and kindness stands as proof that he was a great man who did great things. Through his children, his impact lives on… I know he will be missed and remembered always. Sky Williams, July 21, 2021
