IN MEMORIAM

MYRTLE HARUKO MULLEITNER

Ma, it’s been five years today since you departed and we still feel the emptiness in our lives without your presence. You dedicated your life for your family and managed to show us unconditional love.

You alone were the “pillar” that held our family together; always there when there was no one else.

Your philosophy was to work and study hard so we could have a better life than you had.

The hardships you endured taught us to have strength and patience. Your compassion to give guidance at the right time never failed, to “never give up” no matter what obstacles you face. With Gohonzon you can turn poison into medicine, by chanting “Nam Myoho Renge Kyo” winter will definitely turn into spring. Remembering these gosho’s captures what your life was all about.

Thank you Ma, thank you for all your love, support, compassion and guidance you have given and done for all of us; we will never forget.

We are comforted to know you are in a better place and at peace with the Bodhisattva’s. You are “forever in our hearts” until we meet again. Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo.

Ma, we love and miss you very much. Bruno, Marsha, Wayne and Leroy
