Choi Jung-sook, 84, at her house in Namyangju. Choi said that she thought her sister had died in the Korean War, but she was able to see her again at the reunion. ''I took photos with a disposable camera, but it broke down or something and the film strips didn't develop. We took a lot of photos but I can't see any of them and that breaks my heart. I don't expect to be able to meet my sister soon. I just want to be able to write her letters and call her,'' Choi said. The latest family reunion for those separated in North and South Korea was held on February 20-25 at the Mount Kumgang resort just north of the border and a total of 813 family members met in tears and joy.
