Dear Fujii Family in the Midwest, (especially Eloise, Laurie, and Brad) Condolences to everyone on the passing of "Uncle/Dad/brother/husband/Grandpa/Great Grandpa/father-in-law" Al. What a blessing he was to so many people and I am so glad that we could have such a blessed family that has grown so large, filled with true faith. I just finished joining the online funeral service and so happy to be able to have joined remotely. It was a real blessing to see and hear the sharing that went on. It is a real blessing that four generations could celebrate his life and memory together. Growing up on the west coast, the Fujii's in Washington and Illinois didn't have the chance to get together very often. I cherish the family reunion picture we took together in Portland in 1968. To have that picture of the Issei's, Nisei's, and Sansei's together-four children of Fred and Martha Fujii, and eight grandchildren together was a first and last time to do that. That makes the crossover moments when one part of the family visited the east or west so much more special. Thank you Brad for taking your Dad back in 2018 for Rupert's memorial service whereupon we could enjoy time with you and your father in Seattle. Visiting from Japan, I was glad to see the two of you and Uncle Raymond, as well, which made it extra special to have the two brothers together celebrating their brother, Rupert, my dad. It was nice to see how lively your father was with his sense of humor. The last time I saw him before that was in 1992 when I saw you and your parents at Ohara Airport when you all graciously met me for a short time as I flew back to Seattle after attending the Urbana Missions Conference. I remember there was a lot of snow there at that time! Your warm welcome was so special especially since we hardly ever got to see each other. Your coming out to the airport to see me for such a short time in such snow says a lot to me about your loving hearts and the bond that we share as family!!! I hope that we can continue to stay in touch and keep the love flowing across the land, sea and heavenly skies as the years go by! Love to you all! I think Uncle Al is so proud of you all for giving him such a wonderful service in his remembrance as well as sharing the key to us all rejoining with him in heaven by sharing the gospel, courtesy of his grandson leading in the prayer of salvation before singing with his guitar!!! That was wonderful!!! Awesome!!! Through his life and passing, his life was instrumental in sharing the gospel to many people, especially to his family and friends. I look forward to your sharing the video recording of the service and if possible, the slide show that was running on the right side which was difficult to see from the vantage point of the video camera. Love always in Jesus, To Him may all glory, honor and praise be lifted up high, Ryan Fujii Osaka, Japan

Dear Fuji family: Al's story and the story of your family is beautiful. He sounds like an amazing man who led a life full of love and joy. Brad, if your kind and beaming personality is anything like his, take comfort that the world is a bit brighter becasue of him. May his light continue to shine on in you and your loved ones during this difficult time.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
