A memorial is being held in HONOLULU, HI.  Below are the details...

Mililani Memorial Park & Mortuary
20 North Kukui Street
Honolulu, HI  96813

Memorial:  8:30am - 11:00am
Service:  11:00am - Noon

Casual dress.  Light refreshements & pastries will be served.


Mahalo to ALL of you that came last yesterday to Mom's services & to all of the ladies & men of Ke'ala 'O Kamailelauli'ili'i & Manawaiopuna for all of your hard work.  Mom's service yesterday couldn't have been more Perfect. 

A month prior to Mom's passing, she told Auntie Denice that she wanted to be cremated.  Auntie Day told Dad & I, but Mom never made mention of anything else that she wanted.  The day before Mom's passing, her & Dad were having a conversation....

Dad:  I understand that you told your sister that you wanted to be cremated

Mom:  Yes

Dad:  Is there anything else you want?

Mom:  I want my service to be like Uncle Val's (a good friends, husband who just passed 3mo ago) nice & simple

Dad:  Ok, anything else?

Mom:  200 balloons....all green

Dad:  Why balloons?

Mom:  When my service is done, i want everyone to go outside & let them all go

We made it happen.  One of the services that Mt. View Funeral Home offered was "release of 100 'green' biodegradable balloons,"  & they offered them in any color that we wanted.  (the 'green' meant earth friendly, not the color lol)  So last night, the first 200 people got balloons & EVERYONE went outside & we all let them go together.  It was just so beautiful & just as she wanted.

We are heading to Honolulu on Tuesday...Dad, Myself, My family & some of Mom's good friends.  We will be spending Thanksgiving with the family & then on Sunday, we will be having a memorial.  For those in Hawaii, I really hope that you folks can join us.  And please, please, please let me know who you are & how you know Mom.  I've heard so many stories throughout my life of all these wonderful people that were in Mom's life at one point & I'd love to meet all of you.

Mahalo for all of the love, prayers & support....

Today I attended a bbq that I attend every year. When we FIRST did this bbq, there was only 2 rows of Subaru's & we knew almost everyone. This year....we filled the WHOLE parking lot & then some. I had a great time seeing old faces & meeting new ones!

A Night In Portland

Last weekend, Marcel & I took a weekend trip to Portland to meet the boys of Project One who were down there for a car show. We left Saturday afternoon & hit the Red Lion at 5:30. When we went to check in, we found out that they had sold our rooms & offered us a paid room 8 miles Northeast of where we were. So of course we took it! It was great!!

Happy Anniversary!

Today is my parents anniversary! To celebrate their 31st anniversary, they went to Baskin Robbins - 31 Flavors. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera in tote for their anniversary ice cream night :( But I know that it would've made for an absolutely cute photog moment.
