  1. Grandma, We love you and will always feel you blessed us in so many ways. We loved to make you smile and laugh- and to enjoy your wonderful cooking. You make us all feel we need to be more forgiving and generous. I know you are with God and all the loved ones who went before you… finally. Love, Cynthia, Mario, Keita, and Hitoshi
