AND WOULD LIKE TO SEND YOU OUR MOST SINCERE CONDOLENCES.

SOMETIMES WHEN PEOPLE SAY "IT WAS MEANT TO BE", WE SHRAG IT OFF, BUT IN JAMES KIM'S CASE IT SOUNDS LIKE THE TROUTH - HOW COULD IT BE OTHERWISE, THAT A MAN WHO HAD KNOWLEDGE (AND ACCESS) TO WORLD'S MOST ADVANCED GATGEDS GETS LOST IN AMERICA'S WOODS WITHOUT A GPS, FUNCTIONAL PHONE OR ANY OTHER OF THE MANY ITEMS WHO ARE USED TO CALL FOR HELP?
LET HIM R.I.P.

I was so very sad to hear the awful news that Mr. Kim didn't make it. I offer my heart-felt condolences to you and the CNET staff, and especially to Mrs. Kim and her children. There really aren't any words to express the grief we feel when a good man passes on. Is CNET going to establish a trust fund for the children?

With much sympathy,"

In reply to: Very sorry

I am only one of so many people, both CNET members/readers and others, who awaited good news of James Kim. Our hopes have not been realized, and so I send you all my sympathy, a small thing in the face of such a great loss to you (and us
--even those of us who never knew him personally) but some comfort, I hope, in your time of greatest grief and thereafter.

My heart aches with you.

Did technology help?
by Historian / December 7, 2006 9:52 PM PST

If I remember right, I thought I heard on the news that one of the reasons that they were able to locate the girls was that they got a momentary GPS fix off their cell phone. So possibly because of Jim's affinity for techno-gadgets he was more directly responsible for helping save his family than he is given credit for.

Let me add my condolences to the list and best wishes to those left behind.

The man who touched many
by dawnt42 / December 7, 2006 11:58 PM PST

Although I don't know you, your name is familiar. Your face walked into our livingroom on the evening news as we followed the rescue of your family. Our hopes and prayers went out to you all as we waited and the news was hard to take. You had taught me much about technology and now you touched my children teaching them the values of courage, strength, love, sacrifice, family and the list goes on. The pictures of you and your family say so much about you. Our thoughts and prayers go out now to all those who knew you and loved you. For this family in Northern BC, we will never forget you.

True Meaning of Love
by bob koopman / December 8, 2006 12:56 AM PST

I had been following the new reports about James, but I didn't realize he worked at cnet. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones. He knew the true meaning of love and sacrificed himself in order to try and find help for his wife and children. I would have been proud to count him among my friends. Godspeed and may you rest in peace James.

James Kim
by jeffrob / December 8, 2006 1:30 AM PST

I was deeply greived to hear of the death of James Kim. Please accept my heartfelt condolances to his family, co-workers and friends, including those who only knew him through the media he so aptly used. His perky personality and humor were a joy and very endearing. He obviously cared about people, who couldn't love that.

I truly hope that he is indeed in a better place. There are some prerequisites to that and I hope that he had thought those through. Sometimes our technological world insulates us from the realities of our mortality and the questions that attend it. I certainly hope that wasn't the case with James.

For those who might be inclined to do a little thinking of their own:

and are science oriented - http://www.reasons.org/resources/apologetics/gospel_presentation.shtml

or philosophically oriented - http://www.rzim.org/resources/jt_index.php

just want the facts - http://guidance.gospelcom.net/answer.htm

A Great Man
by Ed-duh-win / December 8, 2006 2:23 PM PST

I didn't know that James Kim was working at CNET although I had read reports of his disappearance. I thought initially "Oh, another one of missing people just like an episode I saw on Discovery Channel on I Shouldn't Be Alive". Boy, was I wrong. I opened the newsletters today and found out that he was an editor at CNET. His name then rang a bell. He occasionally wrote the CNET Music newsletters. Then a wave of sadness swept over me.

We lost such a fine man. Fate just had to take him away from the world. Sometimes fate is so cruel to us. As a fan of his work, I cannot express how sad I feel. My heart goes out to Mr. Kim's family.
