Inspirational Friend

My friend Mari came to Hawaii from Japan and learned hula. Since then, she has done a terrific job in creating a business franchise in teaching hula, while still performing it professionally and modeling. She is also venturing into other areas of business. Her support means a lot to me. Mari is definitely an inspirational entrepreneur, and more importantly, a great friend to have.

Burial Service For Michael Oasay.

This morning of January 24, 2017 from 10:30 A.M. I attended the burial service for my friend Michael Oasay Hawaii Veterans Cemetary at Kaneohe, Oahu, Hawaii. It was performed with military honors by the Hawaii Air National Guard that included the presentation of the U.S. flag to Mike’s wife Yvonne and a gun salute. Rev. Nakano of Jodo Mission of Hawaii conducted the service with a chant for Mike and a sermon on how Mike will always be with us. 

I got to be friends with Michael Oasay because he, his younger brother Leighton, and I are Eagle Scouts from the Boy Scouts program at Troop 75 in Pearl City, Oahu, Hawaii. Leighton and I are the same age and three years younger than Mike. The three of us attended Pearl City Highlands Elementary School, Pearl City Highlands Intermediate School, and Pearl City High School.

Mike served in the Hawaii Air National Guard and worked for Hawaiian Electric Company for many years. He is survived by his wife Yvonne, children Jacqueline, Steven, Andrew, and Sean; parents Manuel and Carol Oasay, and younger brother Leighton Oasay.

My Friend’s Mom’s Memorial Service

On the afternoon of Sunday, January 15, 2017, I attended my friend Gregg Teruya’s mom’s memorial service at Nuuanu Memorial Park. When we were in our teenage years, we used to sleep over Gregg’s house to watch movies, play video games, and play basketball. Mrs. Teruya was always so kind, and often cooked or picked up food and beverages for us. I remember having some very nice talks with her. I’m grateful to have these nice memories of her. My thoughts are with Gregg, his dad, sister Marcie, and their family.
