The last cup of coffee with Lorraine


April 15, 2017 after city tour in Okinawa Convention Center for Ikebana International 11 Th World Convention.
I had a chance to drink coffee with Lorraine at coffee shop in convention center, while we waited whole hour for Ikenobo School demonstration. I was curious about you as practitioner of Ikebana. You told me the story that how you met your husband and later fall in love to Ikebana,  I was moved by your life stories. Indeed!
Lorraine, you are in our heart and thoughts. you will be missed by all of us.
In this Exhibit, we were set up a table to delicate Dr. Lorraine Toji and used all of the containers  given by Lorraine's sisters to thanks and memory her.
