I remember you fondly Fuji. All we had to do was smile at each other and knew what the other was thinking. I cherish our time together. Blessed rest to you my friend.

Dear Family, Fugi used to come to the YMCA and participated in our Silver Sneakers Program. She made many close friends there and we all missed her very much when she left. I am very sorry to hear of her demise. She has been sorely missed. She always had a very kind spirit and a beautiful smile. Our best to your family, you are all in our thoughts and prayers.
