    Hey Cousin Mike and Cousin Theresa,
    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother, my Aunt. My thoughts and prayers are with you guys in these hard times. “Aunt Sue” as she was known to me,was a great women with a smile you could feel through the phone. I remember talking to her on the phone every time your father was out here on the east coast. And when we came out to visit the one summer I remember being so excited to meet my Aunt after speaking with her over the phone. what great memories. As a family all we have is each other and if you guys ever need anything…

    I would like to remember Mom as a very devoted loving wife and mother. She would always stoodup and back Dad on all his ventures. Mom always like making flowers beds and taking care of the house when Dad was away. I remember staying with you guys one summer down in South Carolina and Mom making her great Italian spaghetti and meatballs as well as her great Japanese foods. I will remember her mostly for her smile and always making a fun time our of hard times never complaining. We all will miss you Shizuko and don’t forget to call Mike Dinkeydow when you meet up with him.
    Love Uncle Ron
