    I will miss you until then

  17. Dear Kareen, I was thinking about you and realized I hadn’t heard from you for a while so looked you up on Facebook. There I read the terrible news that you had passed away too soon. When you would reminisce about your time in Tokyo, I understood your feelings perfectly. You roamed free and wild in that city and it was a blast to have shared that special time as house mates in Shibuya. I hope your soul is at peace. I will always remember your radiance.
