Minako Honda in Remembrance

Today is exactly 2 years since Minako Honda left us. We shall remember her always as the beautiful voice who would not give up hope till the very end.

Here's an extract from Tokyograph news:

The city of Asaka, Saitama is planning to erect a monument in honor of the late pop star Minako Honda and her contributions to the city, which is her hometown. Honda died in November 2005 from acute myelogenous leukemia, at the age of 38.

The 1.5 meter tall monument will be placed at the south entrance of the Asaka station on the Tobu Tojo Line. It will be made of stone and alloy, and will include an engraving of a poem that Honda wrote while she was battling her illness. The monument's design includes an embedded photo of Honda and a device that will play a recording of her singing. The city is aiming to complete construction by July 31, the date of Honda's birth.
