Hisaho Koseki, 82, barely escaped the tsunami when a neighbor drove her to safety. Now she's at a local evacuation center in Kesennuma, Miyagi prefecture. Her son has offered to take her in, but she doesn't want to burden him.

This is so sad. Old age shouldn't be filled with fear and stress. Sending white light to comfort and heal....

Ytfytf Y. Man, talk about being in the right place at the right time! Why don't you send some of that clothing over to Japan (everything but the manicure set, of course) It will be a good will gesture on your part and everybody around here will stop hollering DAMN SPAM, for one day, in your honor! How bout' it man? You on board?

So tragic, especially for those too old to take care of themselves.

She should go to her family. They need to support each other at a time like this.
