Kiyoko's Birthday

This photo of Kiyoko with her grandson, Jason, was taken
(as I recall) at the celebration for her 70th birthday,
held at her home in Ben Lomond.
Some of the flowers were gifts for the occasion.
Jason's sisters, Alyssa and Nicholette were also in attendance.
It was a lovely celebration.

Kiyoko wrote wonderful haiku about children;
here are two of my favorites.  jhh

A child does not know
of life's melancholy
the loquat blossom

Kiyoko Tokutomi

In summer clothing
children have such beautiful
arms and legs

Today, a memorial luncheon is being held for friends and family.
