Dear Masami,

Im afraid I dont know where to begin. I can only hope you will forgive me for being absent during your time of need; when your dear father passed away. I think of both of you often. Today I searched the internet to see if I could find some way of contacting you and I came across the notice from Lakeview. I am hoping this reaches you.

I hope you are recovering from the loss of your father. He was such a special man; kind and wise, funny and interesting. I am privileged to have known him. In the time since his passing I have come to miss his company on Sunday afternoons especially, when hed come out for dinner and at holidays they are all a little emptier now.

Life foists all kinds of changes upon us and I guess we learn to live with them. We have little choice.

Again, I hope you are well. I hope that knowing how much he loved and admired you has provided some comfort.
