We are sorry for the loss of Kusu. He was a gentle, thoughtful and generous man, whom we enjoyed spending time with, especially when he was living at Peters Creek. Memories brought about through our common love for gardening and good Japanese food, will remain with us. We will miss him, especially when white pointsettias are abundant during the holidays. ~C&G&Masa
