I have such treasured memories of Sumako who visited me often in Northern Kentucky as we traveled together to talk with friends about learning about chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo as the strategy for individual happiness and world peace.
I also treasure coming to her home with Ken for our Cincinati chapter planning meetings.

She will forever be remembered for her kindness and a person who placed her entire energy into a better world with peace for all. I will miss her smiling face and personality. I will continue to pray for her eternal safety and happiness. Ken Truex

There is so much to say about Sumako. She was always encouraging in the practice of Nichiren Buddhism. She helped encourage many new members, myself being one.
As a person she would not let you give up and encouraged strong Buddhist practice. Her love of her practice was always present and those who heard her chant knew that is was from the heart. Sumako will be missed for all of her “never disparaging spirit’. Sumako you have a long and very fruitful life carry on to the next.
