In Memory of Uncle Kazuo

Today, one of my uncles, Kazuo, past away.

He was the first boy of my mother's family and he stayed with my grandma, his mother, all his life through at his birthplace which is famous for the summer festival.

Since his school days, he was a very good runner and got good results at track and field meets.
I remember well that when I was a kid he showed me medals he won at various competitions and I was proud of him.

My grandma past away last November at the age of 100 and we had the first lantern festival ceremony in this July. It's the most important milestone after a person past away in Japan.
He took care of grandma for years, thus, I thought he can enjoy his own life henceforth.
I hope he enjoys his next life with grandma and grandpa in heaven.

RIP, uncle Kazuo.

TOEIC '13 Winter

Today, I received the result of TOEIC test I had two weeks ago.

Since last April, I didn't have almost any chances to speak in English,
but I think I did enough well. :)

In Memory of Yone-cha

Today, my grand mother, Yone-cha, past away finally.
She completed 100 years of her life calmly.

Roughly 50 years ago, she lost her husband (my grand father) suddenly.
In those days, she had 1 girl and 4 boys, and the eldest one was just
a junior highschool student. Thus, she had to work very hard.
But, anyway she brought up all the kids successfully, and eventually she got 7 grand
children and 4 great grand children.

Her home town is well known for its Summer Festival around the area. It attracts
lots of people including relatives of course. Thus, she looked very happy (and busy :o)
during the festival season of September. It reminds me of lots of memories with gramma.

Now, she can see her husband after 50 years interval, and I would like to say
good-bye and take a rest with your darling in the heaven. :)

TOEIC '12 Winter

Today, I received the result of TOEIC test which I had just after getting back from
a business trip to USA. As you can see, my score has been decreasing
for these two years, but this time it looks like I did well. :)
