My friend Mary Suzuki passed away at 12:00 noon today. She was a good friend, we were planning to go see an exhibition in the city soon, but alas she went on her way. She was a woman full of the joys of living. We used to go to a lovely Indian restaurant in the place where she lived and chat for hours over delicious foods and a glass of wine, trying to come up with an understanding of humankind it’s joys and it’s problems. I will miss her very much, but I am happy that she had a good and happy life.
