    Wayne and EB, Remember coming to visit at Kaumana Terrace house and how sweet mom always was. Both mom and Dad used to stay KMC in their retirement years and it was a pleasure to reconnect with them both and chat.I’d always ask about you guys and Mom was so animated to know we went to school together. Please accept my deepest condolences and Prayers of comfort and strength to both of you.
    Take care! Tommy Roberts

  • My parents and our family wanted to extend their deepest condolences on the recent passing of your mom and dad. My dad has fond memories about their National Guard days and I recall my mom having coffee with your mom at the Terrace house. Whenever I saw your parents at Liliioukalani Park with their dogs they always had smiles on their faces. May fond memories of good times together help you at this difficult time.
    With sympathy, T “Bullet” and Emi Ueno
