A Very Sad Week
Posted on 2004/05/26 13:55:23 (May 2004).
[Saturday 15th - Tuesday 25th May] On Saturday, we received some terrible news. Kana, Chie's sister, had died. It was absolutely earth shattering. We both got on the first flight available to Japan to be with her family. There was a ceremony on the Monday in Tokyo, followed by a smaller ceremony on the Friday in Hiroshima. I came back to England on the 25th (Tuesday) to return to work, whilst Chie stayed behind to be with her family - she'll probably stay at least a month in total.
It has probably been the saddest week of my life, and must obviously have been even harder on Chie. I guess the only positive thing to say is that at least we could get to Japan quickly, and the family can be together whilst they try to come to terms with it.
