Yes, I would love a larger photo. I went to Amache last month and took a photo of this monument but I had to use a flash and it is not clear. How can I contact you to give you my e-mail?

I can send you a larger photo if you would like...
My father said revisiting Amache in 2008 brought back a lot of memories.

Thanks for the photographic journey down memory lane. How delightful it was to see the photos of the Homma children in camp and then much later in 2008 at the Amache camp site. My friend Helen Kato often teased me about the Christian church having many more members than the Buddhist church. The photo of the Sunday School class IS huge. I tried to locate Helen and her sister Nobuko, but failed.
