The devastation we witnessed upon landing was beyond our expectations, and we were grateful to return to our ship after the task was completed. Returning to the launch, I noted a small book, which appeared to be an address book or a small diary. I of course could not read what had been written, as it was all in Japanese. Also, the condition of the small book was poor. Apparently the owner had tried to tear it up and it was badly stained. I picked it up with no plans to do anything with it.
Many years later, our niece studied landscape architecture in Japan and during her studies, she met a man whom she later married. On one of their visits to our home, I showed Masami the book, and explained how I had come into possession of it. He could decipher much of it, but not all because of its age and poor condition. Masami took it to the University of Washington where he received help and suggestions on how to locate the family of the owner. The book did indeed contain addresses, some personal notes and some poetry the man had written.
Masami traveled between the US and Japan in his business, and was successful in locating the young man's family. They were extremely grateful, as they had no idea where he had last been, nor were any of his possessions ever returned to them.
I received a copy of the story, which appeared in the Japanese paper, and a wonderful Japanese doll, as a thank you gift from the young man's widow. As is their religious custom, the book was burned and placed in an urn at the base of his shrine.
