Dear Friends,

This is what we have sent out:

"My sweet, strong, amazing husband of 26 years passed away this morning just after sunrise in beautiful Lanikai surrounded by his family.

Mahalo nui loa to family and friends who have stayed with us through this journey.

Aloha no au la 'oe
I truly love you Dick"

For you, you know there is so much more.  When the time comes I will write about our 5 days in hospice at our home.  It was a very hard time but we are so pleased that he was home.  When he passed this morning at 6:30am I was by his side with his best friend and sister.  Our daughter and my mother entered the room within a few minutes.  Once he journeyed on, we all felt so relieved that he was at peace.  He fought so hard for so long and was ready to go.  I know I am going to need you in the days ahead and I know you will be here.

Aloha,

Kathleen

My dear Kathleen, words fail to convey my deepest sympathy to you and your family.  At least you can be reassured that Dick is now pain free and at peace.  He's probably flying over the sands and water of Kailua Beach right now.  Please post when you are able to - we are concerned that you'll be okay.  Call if you need anything.

Love, Laureen

Describe how I feel upon hearing youre words. There is no way to put into words that a life of a loving father , husband and friend has eneded . there are no real words for me to say to you Kathleen other than I am very happy to have seen a couple who had so much love for family and each other. You have the love of your family and your cyber family to hold you up and get you thru the many years to come My deepest sympathy. Ron.

Kathleen,

There are no words that come to mind. Only how sorry we are for your loss. I'm glad your wonderful husband is not suffering anymore. It's a horrible thing to watch someone that you love suffering. We will continue to pray for strength for you and your family. Please take care of yourself. I'm sure Dick is riding a big one upstairs.

Love,

Linda and Mom

So very sorry that he has passed this soon that you couldn't even take your breath from bringing him home to his eternal peace.  May God be with you and your girls for strength during this most difficult period. You have been a wonderful wife, mother and care giver and you have shared with us your husband's journey which was fought with much admiration.  Be assured that you and your family will be prayed for and thought of.  May he be riding the waves of Heaven as he sails in to eternal peace. 

Hugs!  Kim

Kathleen,

 

So thankful for all you have given this community!  So many losses in the past 6 years, so many of our friends who fought so damn hard to stay, so many who now would have wrapped arms around you and us and held us tight.  Who now embrace Dick and welcome him home.  He is pain free, doing cartwheels....how long do you think it was before he found a sufboard and headed to the beach?  :)  Hang tight to the LOVE Kathlleen, let the warm memories sustain you today and always.  Best to your children, family and friends.

I know the hurt, grief and sorrow you are now experiencing.   I am so very sorry you must go through this.  Yes Dick is now free of this horrible disease while your immense pain and sorrow is  beginning.   In time, you will smile again and until then I wish you only the best and may you be comforted by all who surround you and feel Dick's love for you, a love that is everlasting and forever felt.

Hugs - Tina

Dear Kathleen,

so sorry to hear about Dicks passing. You fought hard with him, side by side. Your love  for each other deepened because of it. Be assured that that same love will stay with you until you two are together again. I wish for you that that same love will help you to go on , knowing that in body he is no longer here, but in love he surrounds you always.

many hugs for you and your family, Marjan
