"My father passed away"

It was incredible.

"It seems like it will be until 100 years old, or 120 years old," Mizuki was always talking about.

From now on I will continue to be 100 years old unexpectedly, I thought that the same kind of days will continue for the future.

Last year I fell down with myocardial infarction and I was hospitalized for 2 months and in February this year I was discharged from a wheelchair.

My strength was totally low, but then I began to be able to walk little by little, taking advantage of my strength.

I recovered by walking the 1 km road from my house to my company.

My appetite also returned, "Is not there anything good?" Was a habit.

Mizuki who said that "The last one is to follow God's decision."

I think that having suffered naturally without being distressed was able to greet the end.

I was gently surrounded by my family.

It was a pity that the falling down at home triggered me

This may also have been decided by God.

Dad who thought family the most. I think that I am surely watching from now on.

Now it may be pleased to see a deceased comrade again.

Last but not least, fans, everyone involved,

Thank you for supporting Mizuki for a long time.
