Akiko is my student and friend; she is very kind and has many talents, but is very modest if complimented. Her skills with needlework, crafts, and cooking cannot be surpassed. Her stitching is very fine and beautiful. I will never forget her rum raisin cake and her cream puffs. In fact, her skills with cooking and needlework are too many to mention. We have shared the joys of being grandmothers as Akiko has a baby grandson waiting for her in Japan. Very soon Akiko and her husband will return to Japan. I wish Akiko much happiness in her future life in Japan and especially many happy days with her grandson!
