thank you...

Hello
thank you for all your kind words for my visit to my dad in japan.
i came back to japan feb 1, and i was spending everyday with my dad at hospital.
my plan was to stay with him in japan for a few months until he gets better.
he passed away last week.
it was so sudden, and my family and i are having saddest time in our life.

we had his wake and funeral at the small church at takanawa, tokyo.
600 people came for his wake and funeral and i think my dad was happy to see all his family and friends.

i miss him so much.

Yukoさん、今ここを見にきてびっくりしました。まさか突然こんな悲しいことになろうとは・・・。
本当につらいことでしょうが、それでも最後の時をお父さんと一緒に過ごすことができたのはよかったですね。
600人もの人たちが弔問に来られたということだけでも、Yukoさんのお父さんが本当に素晴しい方だったと想像できます。ご冥福をお祈りします。

Hello my Yuko,
I hope you'll feel better, I know it's easy to say but life is still going.. It's a hard time in your life because you were very close to your dad I guess, I can't imagine what you feel know.Your father had a beautiful last goodbye, people appreciated him, this is the most important! I will always be there if you need to talk:
Take Care
