We are very sorry to hear of your loss. Mommasan was such a wonderful person. We will never forget the Christmas she gave us cups with pictures of sushi and their Japanese and English names. We still use them and think of Mommasan and that wonderful memory every time we use them. Our love and sympathy go out to all. David & Sarah Moore
