On September 7th I attended the memorial service for Takuma Nakahira that was held at 10:30 at a funeral hall in Hiyoshi.

Takuma Nakahira was in all cases an amiable man and friend with a naturally unaffected sense of humor, who every now and then displayed a peculiar kind of lightness.
Now that he is gone, I do miss him a lot.
