I'd like to give my deepest sympathies. John drove my children every day. Thank you for always kindly talking to us even though we are not good at English.

John drove my son Kai every morning to school for the last two years. On the first day when he was picked up by the small yellow school bus that had "Japanese Children's Society" written on the side, Kai was so excited he could barely contain himself. He was three at the time. He's almost six now -- and every morning I would tell him "hurry up or John-san will be here!" John always had a smile on his face for the kids and even gave them little presents for Halloween and Christmas that Kai really appreciated. Thank you, John, for making our mornings bright and fun.

Rest easy Uncle Red, words cannot express how much I will miss you. Your gentle heart, lovely soul, and your loyalty. Please give mom and dad a great big hug from us. I will never ever forget you, my godfather and one of the best men I had to privilege of knowing. Please watch over us and keep us safe. All my love for eternity xoxox
