Hi! How are you doing Niisan(bro). They say "time flies", but a bit long one year for me. Preparation work is all done except some last minutes things. I'm sending you a letter today before it for our lovely memories to share with you,
I really love the first picture of ours. Thanks to our father taking pictures of us even more than half a century ago. I am wearing the summer dress mom made for me. I believed that there was nothing our parents cannot do. I remember you agreed sharing the same feeling. I am proud of us being a loving family.
Look at us holding the big pieces of water melon together. I reminisce that I couldn't wait to dig into it seeing my mom cutting for us that way. I do remember you used to make me cry eating my share of food, naughty you. We share the whole childhood memories we treasure in that old employees' house before moving new house when we were late teens.
I think my first memory is being on that seesaw in the little play ground near our house and I believe you and father were the other side.
You really were the intelligent, meticulous and promising boy; well, have you noticed that I was a bit jealous to you thinking mom didn't expect you any house chores and forcing me a lot. However, I appreciate her very much that she had taught me a lot. Standing in that very small kitchen by her was my sweeet memory. Would you tell her I said so, I missed the chance to say words of thanks face to face to her. I believe you are in peace togather with her,
Lots of Love from your beloved sister,
