I am truely sorry to hear of Sijo's passing also. I have met him several times and performed for him at several promotions and
got his stamp and signature on my diploma for 4th degree black in TaiChiChuanFa kungfu under Josi Mel Sugue in Washington.
I was a great honor and pleasure to meet him and Dechi and he will be missed. I wish I could make it to the services, but
can't afford it with the economy now.
 All my love and prayers to the family,
