Goodbye Uncle

I'm sad to say that my Uncle Yoshio passed away a few days ago. My parents went to go see him on the morning of our family reunion a few weeks ago. He had been very ill for many years and I think it's been maybe 10 years since I'd seen him. He was a hard-working J.A. gardener, like many of his generation. After the reunion, my parents gave us cuttings from one of his plumeria plants from his yard. What is significant is that he is the first one in my family to pass away since my grandma died in 1988. My condolences to my Auntie Kumi, my cousins Tina and Nina, and their families.
