Aloha Ohara Ohana,
I remember MASANORI… that is, I remember his name. Wow! I
have always maintained that his name reminded me of a benevolent
samurai who lived his life with kindness & compassion. He had to be accurate & precise; attributes to his chosen profession as a carpenter by trade. Tomie says that he was “good & hardworking.”

Rest now, Masa. Cast your gaze upon US All once in a while.
And… Tomie & family… may you continue to heal each day.
Be safe.
A Hui Hou,
Rita Chun
