Fast-forward to 1994.  This picture was taken in October 1994 in Korea, at the celebration for my father's 60th birthday.

In Asian culture, the 60th birthday is a very significant milestone.  It represents the "end" of one life and the "beginning" of a new one.  Typically the person's family throws a large party to celebrate the event. The three sons came from the U.S. to Korea just to attend this event.
