"There are two things I remember best about Dad. He was a very wise man, he told me once when Hiroko was little that "We spend the first 2 yrs teaching a kid to walk and talk, and the next 18 yrs telling them to sit down and shut up" Every time I tell Hiroko to be quite or sit still, I remember Dad.

He was also a very kind and generous man. More than once he came to my rescue after I locked my keys in the car. He also seemed to know when I had a hard day at work. On my worst days, I would come home and the dishes would be done and the kitchen clean. It was wonderful.

I will miss the stories he told and conversations we had. I will miss hearing him say "There's my girl!" as Hiroko ran into the office when we went to visit. We love and miss you Dad!"

"To my darling Uncle Gary, how I am going to miss our talks.  We both use to talk for hours on the phone.  Daddy always said when we got together to talk no one else could get a word in edgewise.  I called you not to long ago and we started talking and I had to be somewhere but I have know I wouldn't talk to you again.  I would have stayed home and visited with you like always.  I love you my Uncle and you have been a very special person in my life.  Just so you and kenji know that your Dad had a shop class his senior year in high school and made a dresser for the baby Mama was carrying..I still have that dresser and yes it is 60 years old.  Uncle Gary you held your brothers hand when he couldn't remember your name.  You loved hiim as he loved you.  Now you are with Daddy and Momma and Eda and Elzy are happy to see you again.  I love you family and I will always keep you in my prayers."
