I lived is Seattle '72-'78, from Hawaii, had enjoyed food in the area, though rarely hung out or knew of the Wing Luke Museum, but as I've aged and revisited Seattle late Nov 2016, I found myself here w/a good friend from San Francisco who was interested in seeing this exhibit. It turned into a little water shed of memories returned, regarding many little aspects, but on the following larger ones very special moments. The store front reminded me of my grandmother's store in Honolulu early to mid 1950s, a widow w/2 grown children owning her own businews was remarkable, I recall candies and crack seed she let me have some, but as out tour guide spoke on the remarkable aspects and services the store owner provided, I was also reminder how my grandmother helped many young people move to Oahu to find work and places to live I have vague recollections of the stories but so many whom she helped and the families attended her funeral services when she passed in a final opportunity to show respect and gratitude for the positive change she helped bring about, as a business owner who was connected to and had interest in the health and strength of her community. I'd forgotten, but the tour and guide facilitated their return. Thank you. It was also interesting to see the other exhibits of daily life and what may have contributed to make it so. It's nice to see the young crew running the place take an active interest. Should I make it back up to Seattle this will be a required visit for me. There's much more to see and take in before this tour was over, but for me the rest was guilding the precious lily, in this case, the water lily. Our guide spoke softly and clearly to the small group of middle aged to older attending visitors, making sure there was time for questions at each new location or speaking point, which was most welcome. Thank you.
