Honor memory of Suguru

Suguru, our important friend, was passed away on May 9, 2016. In April 2014, he has been diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy, which is the incurable disease. He continued to the vigorous activity while he was fighting against the disease.
May Suguru’s soul rest in peace. However, he was left behind great person, organization and community. For the Internet to make a better society, we will continue to walk to together.
