R.I.P. Opa

Early this morning my 72-year-old grandfather passed away in a hospital in Belgium. He was recently diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver and lost his fight against the disease today. He leaves behind a wife, three children, eight grandchildren and many memories.
His death was quite sudden and unexpected. I can’t stay in Japan to mourn this loss alone, so I’ll be flying home soon to be with my family, to say goodbye to my grandfather and to attend his funeral.
