Ken Kono Publishes "Stories From My Life"

It's been years in the making, but we finally pushed the button on Ken's Memoirs.  Ken put his heart and soul into this.  Yumiko took a lot of time this summer typing all of the text into a blurb book.  Ken's sister Takae provided us with lots of photos from the early years.  If you want to take a look, click on the preview button.  If you click on the arrows in the lower right corner you can make the book full screen and easy to read.  Have fun!!
