Today, April 26 marks two years since we lost our dear friend ChrNo - Berryz Fangirl, artist, singer, definitive HiPster. You are a source of inspiration of pure fangirlism and creativity that we will never see the likes again. I know she is smiling in heaven when JPHiP Crew interviewed the girls in NJ last year:
She is the creator of the JPHiP Mascot
singer songwriter of the JPHiP National Anthem, ChrNo was a dear friend and Legendary HiPster: http://jphip.com/chrno
To learn of the news that afternoon that she had committed suicide, after we repped her artwork for all of Berryz to see in Seattle is something I will never forget. Her long battle with mental illness had come to an end, she had found peace.
Honour her by rocking your Official ChrNo Memorial T-shirt
(available at http://shop.jphip.com
- all proceeds go to Mental Health Charities
($3.10 per shirt) will go to Mental Health Awareness charities based in France and worldwide: http://www.who.int/mental_health/en/
