We’ve known Taka & Romi more than 20 years. I recall our very first meeting with their daughter, Karin. She was about 3 years and cute as a button. The image of her wearing a bonnet always takes me back to the start of our friendship.
Their children moved to Seattle to attend school. The last time we saw them was at Jeff and Jenny’s wedding. They played the Ukuleke for the newly weds.
Karin graduated from University of Washington (UW) and has a budding specialty beverage manufacturing company with 3 friends from UW. The promising business began as a class project.
Ray graduated from high school last week and ready to pursue his interest in college.
Every parents would like to see their children succeed in life. Seeing how Karin and Ray have become confident, responsible members of the society was wonderful and heartwarming.
Tonight we are back at the Eagle Tree RV Park.
