93 years and a bit of change….
My grandfather, Tamotsu Akimoto died on the 12th. He’d lived through 3 Emperors, a World War, an Olympics in Tokyo (and the approval of another!), and died peacefully in his sleep. His was the generation that fought our wars of aggression, then were forced to rebuild from the ashes. But all I can say is that I miss him and wish I could’ve been home to say goodbye.
