Karen Katayama, of Toyama Prefecture (2075 couple) from the USA, passed into the spirit world Wednesday. She had been diagnosed a few months before with a rare blood cancer. Her body didn't accept the Chemo so they gave it to her orally. I thought she was feeling better, tired but... I called her in the hospital about twice a week just to chat. Tonight I called and Myung Mi, her daughter, answered. Myung Mi (19) has been taking care of the family with her father and working while Karen was 3 months in the hospital. I spoke with her gentle husband and love of her life...he is amazed, in control, but shock... They have 4 kids, 19 to 9 yo left to all of our care.

Karen was always such a hard worker and completely honest. For every situation, she would always see 6 or 20 viewpoints to consider striving for the most loving one. Always wanting for the best for everyone...I, too, am kinda numb right now...never thought she would pass. I go to Toyama tomorrow night and Myung mi will come here later on as we keep her in our hearts for a blessing partner, Karen's last wish. Her Seunghwa will be on Saturday morning.

I wanted to pass the word of her passing to brothers and sisters she loved through CIG-JIFA.
