On a snowy and windy afternoon last December 1, Jinky Young, the late Bobby Fischer´s Filipino child, finally linked up with her father in a small cemetery in front of the Laugardaelir church in Selfoss town, southwest Iceland.

Braving the distance from far-away Philippines and the minus 8 weather of Iceland, Jinky took
leave from school to visit her father´s tomb with her mother, Marilyn Young. The last time they saw Fischer was in September,´2005 in Reykjavik when the chess legend had a 3-week rendezvous with them. Fischer took mother and daughter around central Reykjavik, and rode with them in buses, his preferred means of transportation. Jinky had a grand time with her dad after she missed him during Fischer´s 8-month stay in a Japanese airport prison.
