some sad news

This will only really relevant to second and third year ALTs, but Urfan's (Kitashigeyasu 2003/2004) father passed away last weekend. Urfan, who currently works in Kurumue, was able to go back to the UK just in time, but he is back in Japan now and back to work. My heart goes out to him and his family at what must be a very difficult time. I'm sure it can't be easy for Urfan to be away from his family right now, and I'm sure those of you who knew him well would also like to pass on your condolences to him. Poor lad.
