Dear Fumie and the Japanese  ValidationTeachers Association,

I am so happy that you are forming an AVO.  I do miss coming  to Japan and being with you.  I remember all the fun times we have had together.  I miss the onsen(spelling?) and the festivals. I am so grateful to you all for

your help in teaching Validation skills to give dignity to the Japanese very old people and their families.  That is wonderful!

My  very best wishes,

Naomi
