Dear my dad,
15 months passed since I have mentioned you here on my blogger, dad !
As I reported you yesterday, mom looked so happy last time I met her on Jan 2 ^^
She told me she feels happy whenever I see her, and I am reassured that nothing was in vain during my visit to her hospital, or at least I realized that I have made her happy in anyhow..
I owe it to you that I was able to surmount everything I am involved over the last couple of years, and I still remember...you said in your will in Oct 24, 2004, which was,
Quit playing around (in original; MAJIME NI YAREYO=まじめにやれよ)
At that time, I still was greenhorn, and I must admit I could only grasp your words on the face value!!
Maybe, I was only scratching the surface of your last word you had left me before you were in critical condition..
Already more than 8 years passed since God had rest your soul dad, time flies !
Now that I understand what you've meant by MAJIME NI YAREYO..
It is not because of I got order, but because of I have got to face the music including mom's issue..
And I do know dad, you're always watching us (me and mom) from the heaven;
I really was prodigal son when you were alive !
I have caused you millions of troubles..I'm very sorry, dad !
By way of apology, I will make it up for my mom (your wife) as much as I can..
And I'll never be succumbed to temptation or whatever..
I'll try my utmost especially at work..
Yes, you raised me up, Dad !
I thank you so much for your watching us as always !!!
