While checking my FB msgs this morning I learned about the death of a dear friend. I taught with his wife. William was involved in everything in our community - hula, paddling, starting Hawaiian ceremonies by torch lighting and conch shell blowing and behind it all his laughter, silliness and support of our keiki.

He was in the water setting up flags for paddling practice when he was struck by a privately owned ski boat and died later at the hospital. Don't know any more details..... don't know if I can handle them.. Flags in the water mean stay away there is a person nearby.

Hurts my heart to think of this and how are we going to tell our DD who has danced with him since she was 8. Don't want to go out today - the fresh pain of talking about him. And the senselessness of it all. Accident or stupidity - those poor in the boat need to live with the reality of causing someone's death. William is now entertaining God and his angels - our community will take a long time to heal....... and when we finally are healed and as part of the process, I know that William will always be in our hearts - with a smile.

So very sorry you are dealing with this.......any death is never easy....but a senseless accident seems to make it worse.

Glad you have so many happy memories to hold you during a very difficult time.

Thinking of you.......and sending hugs.

Mahalo friends.I did call one mutual friend this morning and as we were talking she said it was a blessing for him to be in the water - and it's true. So glad I'll be with DH tonight. Am worried about DD- this is going to hit her hard and the relatives she's with are not known for compassion - if she even tells them at all.

Cannot begin to tell you how much your support helps.
Mahalo nui loa.

Aww, that's so sad, but what an amazing life he led. He must be smiling from heaven to be remembered with such glowing words of honor. Until you see your friend again, I wish you the comfort of his memory.
