DEAR FRANCES By Frances H. Kakugawa

Omoiyari . . . Think of others first and good karma will return to you.

Dear Frances,

My 92-year-old mom didn’t want anything for Christmas, so I decided to give her your book on Kapoho — it was the perfect gift!

My mom really enjoyed reading your book — she read it in three days. She told me she found your stories very interesting because she could relate to them, as they reminded her of [her] childhood days. She is now reading Atul Gawande’s book, “Being Mortal.” I think she will relate to that book, as well. So far, she told me she also finds it very interesting. I hope it doesn’t depress her.

I read the book and it made me realize that Mom is living Dr. Gawande’s book.
