I will miss your sweet momma. Growing up across the street, I have a lot of sweet memories, she was a great cook, and welcomed me in at any hour. She could definitely be a spitfire, I remember sleeping over, and sneaking out, and she caught us red handed lol! She was very firm, but kind. I got to experience some unique cuisine that she made, which I will never forget. I wouldn’t trade any of my memories for any amount of money. Until we meet again Michiko, I will miss you, thank you for being you❤️
