“Today, Gayle and I offer our deepest sympathy to the entire Diamond Electric family, which we consider part of our West Virginia family. I will always be appreciative of the kindness Mr. Shigeji Ikenaga showed me, Gayle and the entire West Virginia delegation when we met with him in Japan in 2005. I pray that you all may find comfort in knowing what a gift Mr. Ikenaga was to those who loved him, and how admired he was by those who were fortunate enough to work alongside him.
