I go all the way back to 1966 when Penny and Rosie came to Memphis for the first time . They stayed with me and my children and I had the pleasure of showing them some of the good things that the south had to offer.
When she and her family left Japan and moved back to the mainland we lived in Pearl Harbor and they stopped to visit so I was able to show them some of the good things about the islands. The bonus then was I was able to meet Renee who was a little girl and
Michael who was a tiny baby at that time.
We enjoyed many visits to her house or mine through the years after that and I love this family very much and am so sorry for your loss and sorry I can't be with you all at this time. God Bless, Aunt Jo
