  1. #1 My uncle just died

    My mom and aunt were really close. So close that my mom moved from San Diego to Las Vegas when I was a kid just to be with her. My dad was in another state, and I really didn't have a father figure growing up, but my uncle brought me under his wing and raised me and my cousin like brothers. I looked up to him and idolized him. He made me the man I am today.


    He passed away today at 12:23 pm. His heart was so bad. Only 1/4 of his heart worked over the last few years and today it finally gave up. He endured hardships, internment camps, and discrimination as a Japanese American. He is finally at peace.

    I love you Uncle Tak..
