For a few years, we were a family of three...
Issei was the lone Kuroiwa son.
And then.....on July 4, 2002
Koji, came into our lives.
(Koji....about 2 hours old.)
He was small....and some of us weren't quite sure about him.
But...we got to know him....
...we realized that he was fun to talk to...
...and he had a great laugh!
Issei said, one time that "Koji's whole body laughs."
He was right.
The Kuroiwa Family had become
a family of 4.
Happy Birthday, little man.
(Koji, this morning...in his b-day bounty...from his head...to his SpongeBob covered feet.)
This will always be my favorite
picture of Koji.
