Irene & Family,

Dear Irene, I was sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I lost my mom in 2010 so now we are all orphans. Hope all is well with you and your family. Missed you at the 45th reunion in July.
My deepest sympathy on Katsuko's passing. I know she will be missed by many. The first time I met her was when I was in high school and I was out at the church helping with the bazarre and we were talking and when she found out I went to school with her grandson she thought it was very funny that I knew him only because people thought we were siblings, because Aoki and Oki are so similar. She smiled & giggled about it the rest of that night. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time.
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

My sympathies on the loss of your sister.
