Joes' 94th

The entire Joseph & Amy-Ada Haratani family; Guy, Joyce, Richard, Kathleen, Saji, Nicole, Jazmine & JP, send condolences to Aunt Dale, Uncle David, Gillian, Nathan, Celeste, and Izzy. :(

We send our sincere condolences to you. We will always remember your mom's sweet smile. She was always smiling with a sparkle in her eyes and happy around people.
We are out of town and wish we could pay our respects.
May your memories bring happiness in your heart during this difficult time.
With aloha and sympathy to all who loved your mom.

I am saddened that I will be out of town and will miss Mrs. Oda's memorial service . I appreciate all the years she spoke to my sixth grade class at Daruma about her camp experiences. The students enjoyed her stories about defiantly picking at the label on the back of the seat in front of her as they rode the Greyhound bus to Tanforan Assembly Center and about the green bologna served in the messhalls at Topaz Concentration Camp. I will miss her charming smile and cheerful outlook on life.
