Last Post of the Year
Angus and Gemma with their Great Papa George in June 2005
In about an hour it will be the new year here in China. We are currently visiting Kunming, in the Yunnan province and have finally found the sun after 4 months of overcast in Chengdu. Sadly though, we had bad news this afternoon. After a battle with multiple myeloma my Grandpa George Amano passed away peacefully at his home in Torrance, California. If you had the opportunity to meet this wonderful man who was the most caring, generous, loving, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather you were very fortunate. Gemma and I will be leaving on Tuesday to come back to the US for his funeral and to spend time with our family.
