*I truly was a beloved daughter*
It's been about two and a half years since he passed away. We held his 2nd death anniversary last Nov. Actually, we call it "３回忌・3kaiki ". There were different explanations in PCpages, but I think it's kind of same as the leap year. Even though my parents' house is empty, I wished to hold the anniversary at home in front of the family altar. We waited till this spring to start thinking about grave. altar. house etc.
As I wrote here, he sure loved to catch up with the development of civilization. And the movies, dramas from America watched together gave me the insight to the western culture. You always are in my heart father. I grew up feeling with your deep affection and support. When I saw you working as a lathe worker when young, I was proud of you as my father and breadwinner "大黒柱 big-black-post, daikokubashira." My husband and I are working together for your house trying to make better for the prospective owner; Please watch over us together with mom and brother.
Happy father's Day for everyone and have a wonderful father's day Sunday.
