My sincere condolences to Lorne, Kathy, Anne and your families.

Auntie Kaz had the energy and drive of a woman half her age. She had an active life and yet, still took the time to keep in touch with friends and family, near and far.

I always looked forward to her letters which were chock full of family news. In fact, I feel like I saw her grandchildren grow up through her eyes. She was so proud of you all.

I hope she is bowling a perfect score up there with Uncle George and looking at you from above with a great smile on her face.

Family of Kazuko-san
My condolences and prayers on the loss of your amazing mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister-in-law & aunt.
Talked to her last on her 108 birthday and was always amazed at how good her memory was whenever I did call. Mits had fond memories of her and Tatsumi when he lived with them as a child.
Thinking of you all as you say your goodbyes and share memories of her.
Love Clara & family
