To my grandmother, thank you for waiting for me and giving me the chance to say goodbye.
Today was one of the most heartbreaking and emotional days of my life as I knew this would be the last time I would be able to see you. I couldn’t hold back my tears for you or hide my saddened face. I’m so sorry I lost my Japanese and wasn’t able to communicate with you to express this to you. I wanted to share all my stories and adventures with you one last time to make you proud that your grandson, your Samichan, kept his lively, energetic, and free-spirit attitude that he had when he was a little boy getting into all kinds of trouble. Seeing you was the best part of this whole trip and hearing you reply back using all your energy and will power despite all the ailments to the little Japanese I know touched my heart so much and I will remember this until we meet again when I get to tell you all my stories.
With a broken, saddened, and grateful heart, your Samichan. #family #kuwano #missyou #japan #toyama #takaoka #himi
