Marie, I think Paul knows that. Furuya Sensei was his teacher. The other posts were put up prior to his passing.
My apologies and all my sympathy to Paul and every student, family and friends of Furuya Sensei. I liked his book "Kodo - Ancient Ways" so much that, having failed to find a french version of it, I decided to try my best and translate it for my Sensei who doesn't read english. Since I have to do this during my free time at work, it's little by little, and Furuya Sensei has been my daily companion for about for months now. I read the news of his passing like that of an old friend.
Again, all my sympathy to those of you who knew him.
