My brother in law is from Guam. My sister and he met in the military. When they were discharged they arrived in AZ with a collection of Don Ho music. I was quite young and got hook with Tiny Bubbles and my kids sang it when they were little. Being a preschool teacher, I introduced my students to Don Ho and Hawaii. It became a favorite unit with the kids and their families. As adults they still mention how much fun it was. I got phone calls when he passed away, to them it was someone close to their hearts and to mine. Can't think of Hawaii without him and my students and families in grass skirts and leis, having a blast. He was so friendly and joyfilled. Gave us so much joy. PEACE. Anna (Az)
Hawaii will never be the same without you "
Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
Rest Don, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.
Thank you for your service to this nation.
I saw Don Ho in 1967 at the International Market Place at Duke Konomoka's dinner and show restaurant, got a picture of him going for the 'kill' there, kissing me at the piano, Herb Albert (the Tia Juana Taxi) guy was in the audience. whoop whoop
I was in Hawaii in the 1970's am so happy I was able to hear him sing his show was.something I won't forget
Being a kid my Auntie took my sisters and I to see Don ho. I'm now 51 it was wounderful to see him in person my father is passed on and from Hawaii. I'm Hawaiian as well
I'm from California
I saw Don twice, once on my way to Vietnam and again 35 years later with my wife. A wonderful entertainer and patriot.
I will always remember you. I saw you twice in Hawaii, and in California (Bay Area).You put a smile on my face
We will never forget the first time we were in Honolulu; our highlight was seeing Don Ho's performance at our hotel. His music lured thousands of mainlanders to his beautiful paradise, and we kept going back. Don Ho, Trader Vic's, and Don the Beachcomber brought polynesian restaurants to the mainland.....Thank you, Don and your family! Rest in the love of Christ.
my life has been a blessing because you hired me. you invited my family to be with your family. the memories of the children on stage and at your house. mahalo for a million memories. i hope i will be able to take care of your children as much as you took care of mine. i will remember you.
god bless you don ho, rest in peace!!!! let the doves fly!!!!
I am so sorry that after so many years I am planning a Hawaii vacation and Don won't be there. I saw him in Boston in the late 60s or early 70s and have most of his records. God bless him.

DON HO IN 1974 MADE MY GRANDMOTHER SO HAPPY BY PICKING HER OUT OF SEVERAL GRANDMA'S. UNTIL THE DAY SHE DIED IN 1992, SHE TALKED ABOUT HER FEW MINUTES UP ON THE STAGE WITH HIM AND WOULD SMILE FROM EAR TO EAR...... THANK YOU DON HO AND SHINE ON FOREVER......MJNEALON
WEEP NOT FOR ME
Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.
Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.
I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.
Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.
Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.
Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

we jut recently learned about Don Ho in our Hawaiian history class.I learned a lot and i wish i were there to listen to his music. He had a huge impact on Hawaii. He showed tourists the Hawaiian culture and brought the AlOHA spirit. We should all remember his contributions to our little island. Mahalo to Mr.Ho and a hui ho!!
I met Don Ho years ago, hello and bye. Later on I got to meet him and spend some time and that is what he did, he made everyone feel special. I met him the night I married on the lagoon at HHVillage and used his photographer, who later introduced us to Don. Immediately Don invited us in and we spent the next few hours talking, laughing, drinking saki and having a wonderful time. There was something about the man, something unique that made peope around him happy. I now am one of those babyboomers he talked about, and he is part of my "memory" down my road. I will Remember You and "This our Wedding Day" always. He sung them so beautifully, I can't imagine anyone else having the same effect he had. I know he is in Heaven brightening hearts. I was blessed for having met him. My condolences (just found this site) to his family.
Whether a lifelong friend, an aspiring performer looking for a break, a grandmother from Peoria, or a member of the military, you mattered to Don Ho. In a one-on-one encounter or an appearance before hundreds on his stage, he made you feel special in his genuine "local boy" style.
My Hawaiian shirts site
I lived in Hawaii from on and off from 1965-1968 (U. S. Navy and it was the best time of my life and a part of that was Don Ho and his music...from Duke's through the TV shows etc. his music always reminded me of my "adopted home". The first time I heard him sing "I'll Remember You" I was was hooked and bought the album to send back to Texas. That feeling and his music has never left me. He is missed and truly one of a kind...a true Hawaiian Ambassador!
During our R&R in Honolulu, 1968, we participated in all Don Ho's shows. Each evening Don recognized the servicemen who were at the show. Don also had my spouse come up on stage and sit in his lap while he sang one of her favorate Don Ho songs. I'll never forget that week w/Don Ho at Dukes.
In 1969, when I worked at Crazy Shirts in the Market Place, I so enjoyed listening to Don Ho and the Ali'is warming up behind us there at Duke's. When my sis and parents vacationed in the Islands with me in 1974, I took them to hear Don Ho and had a wonderful evening of "Tiny Bubbles" and fond memories. Mahalo, Mr. Ho, for the silky refrains and soft stage lights.
Don Ho was a very special person and a great voice with his special talent . He was Mr. Hawaii traveling to Hawaii will never be the same may god bless Don"
I just saw the funeral on tv of Do Ho here in Florida. I never got the pleasure to hear him in person I always knew of him. Great singer. I'm so sorry that we all lost him and Dayna. God bless you all and keep you in His arms. I watch it twice . I just got Hawaii tv here in Florida. And the first thing i wanted to watch was Do Ho remember. I love Hawaii and hope to go next year.God willing. Thank you for sharing him with us and also about your sister sorry also that she is gone.
GOD BLESS FOR ALL THE LOVE AND ALOHA YOU SHARED TO ALL THAT KNEW YOU.AND TO ALL THAT HEARD YOU GOD BLESS.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL YOUR DAD I GREW UP TO HIS MUSIC AND I WAS BLESSED TO HAVE THAT IN MY LIFE.ALWAYS BLESSINGS NEVER LOST'ES . WE WERE ALL BLESSED TO HAVE KNOWN DON OR IF YOU HEARD HIS MUSIC YOU KNEW THE MAN HE'S WHAT HELD AND KEPT THE ALOHA ALIVE GOD BLESS .FOR YOUR BLESSING'S .DON HO .
I was so sad to hear about the passing of Hawaii's icon.Don was the man,the myth, and the legend.He will always be the big Kuhana.I plan to visit Hawaii in the very near future.I can remember when he appeared in Hawaii Five-O & Magnum P.I.He will always be remembered.Salute! Don Ho !
do ho was the best.. at his shows in 1966 i would sit in the front row .. he got to know me actually and he called me legs.. he was so special and i have fond memories of our few times togther as friends.. fabulous person... miss him so when i return to hawaii.. now being 64.. oh where does the time go... god bless
I think of him every single day; his music; his life; his Island.
There has never been a better entertainer; one of the all time regrets of my life is that I never got a chance to meet him.
My deepest sympathy to his family. His music will forever live in our hearts.
To the family of Don Ho and Dayna Ho-Henry, Please accept my sincere condolences at this sad time of their death. I visited Hawaii in 2002. I stayed at the Waikiki Beachcomber and heard Don Ho and his family sing there. He and your family made our visit truly memorable. Thank you for the music and aloha spirit. I will remember you and my wonderful visit to Hawaii forever.
I was extremely fortunate to have grown up in Hawaii from 1949 through 1966 and Don Ho was our "local boy who made good". I was shocked to hear the news that he was gone. My memories of Hawaii and Don Ho are forever. I think his spirit will live on because Don Ho was "no ka oi'" (the best).
To the Don Ho family i truly believe we have lost such a wonderful man and entertainer and so much more. I will miss seeing him when i visit there. I have loved him since i was a child and i will cherish the memories of his show and all the aloha that he gave.Hawaii will not be the same. May god bless all of the HO FAMILY.
Tiny Bubbles....I went with my aunt to Hawaii in 1966 and saw his show. As a teenager, who loved the Ricky Nelsons, I was impressed with the warmth of his voice, his songs stayed with me over forty years. Mr. Ho was a legend in Hawaii and always will be, his warmth, personaltiy and kindness to his fans will be remembered by all who met or heard him. To Don Ho's family, my deepest sympathy, to his friends, all of Hawaii and his fans, my deepest sympathy. Mr. Ho, you will be missed but your music will live on forever. Happy Sunsets and many of them.
Don Ho was one of a kind.He will always be loved.I will always remeber his smile and the love he give.Aloha Don Ho.Michael
many of us are shading tears of sorrow for known we wont see ya tommrow...aloha dear don aloha
may you rest in peace and may the spirit of yours be always remebered.
To The Don Ho Family and friends
we the versteeg and Salzmann would like to sent our deepest sarrow in the lost of your father and Husband. we enjoyed so much of hearing his music.
My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Don and enjoying his show in 2002. We were impressed by the genuine warmth and friendliness he showed to everyone. Mahalo for sharing Don with us and blessings to the Ho family.
Sincere Sympathy to all who loved our very special singer who took us away from all our problems to a magical place! I am a nurse and friend of his cousin, Ziona WALLACE Huntsman, who adopted Tennessee as her home and is much loved and treasured here. She still can hula and shares her heritage with her friends. LOVE and SYMPATHY, Pat - PJ
I would like to express my sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Don Ho. As a young married wife and mother, I heard the song "Tiny Bubbles" and made the statement I would love to meet that singer and listen to him sing. My husband and I were finally able to go to Hawaii in 1973. Of course, we made a special effort to attend his show. It was everything and more than I wanted it to be! We stood in line for over an hour to get his autograph and lo and behold I also got a big kiss. Some dreams turn out as good as the dream, this one did. Thanks to you and your family for sharing him and his talent with the public. My heart is sad at his loss, but full of joy for the legacy he left us. I am a 67 year old great-grandmother that has shared this story and my 8x10 picture with each generation. You are in my prayers.
I REMEMBER AS A YOUNG GIRL PLAYING HOOKY FROM SCHOOL JUST SO I COULD WATCH HIS SHOW NOT KNOWING NEARLY 30YEARS LATER THAT I WOULD HAVE A CHANCE TO MEET HIM. HE WAS VERY WARM AND LOVING, AND LAUGHED WHEN I TOLD HIM MY STORY. GOING TO THE ISLANS AND NOT SEEING DON FOR ME WOULD NOT MAKE THE TRIP COMPLETE, MY HEART AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO HIS FAMILY. DON I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
To the Family of Don Ho,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Don was a great musician and well liked.
Don Ho and the Aliis bring back so many memories of the mid 60s in Waikiki. Those were wonderful, carefree times when the Islands were not so crowded and Waikiki was a fun place. Don, may your rascal soul rest in peace and Mahalo for those wonderful times, wonderful songs, wonderful memories.
Aloha to you , my Brother. The life of our people remains intact through our music and songs. Your contribution is a living testimony of our will to endure as the Hawaiian people. We can never thank you enough for the legacy that you have given us through your song and music. Mahalo.
Aloha ke Akua,
Ambassador Designate to the United States for the Kingdome at Hawaii
Ke Apuni O Hawaii Nei
Our hearts go out to you at this time and in the days ahead. My husband and I were raised around the music of Don Ho, he was and always will be the "king" of Hawaii.
tiny bubbles was my favorite song by don ho when i was just a kid
You will be missed.But now you are a free spirit. God Bless You and yours.
I got married on kauai in 1997' and as we were landing there, Dons wonderful song Beautiful kauai" was
on my CD walkman. He has given so many of us a glimpse of paradise, with his song, his Island generosity
and his sweet soul. May you soar to heaven on the wings of Hawaiian
angels. Aloha Oe' Don
My family will also miss you,Don Ho.I heard him sing "tiny bubbles"
and fell in love with it. When my
daughter was born in 67 I sang it to her,and when my granddaughter was born 94 I also sang it to her
as a lullabye. Eventhough I never
met Don Ho, his song will live in
my heart forever.His beautiful voice will be missed by 3 gener-
ations. Heaven now has another
My lifelong dream was to meet Don Ho, and in 1994 when I married my husband took me to Waikiki for our honeymoon. We went to Don Ho's dinner show and my dream was made. To hear him sing and have my picture taken with "Mr. Hawaii" is a night I will never forget. And the pictures of him and I hang proudly on my wall. He will be missed so. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
You are a great memory to me and my mom who passed away - as you had her up on the stage as she was the oldest great grandmother at your show that night - you are gone but not forgotten. Sincerely
A wonderful talent has been silenced but his music and memory will forever be in people's hearts. He made us feel happy.
Did not know you personally but knew your cousin, who loved you so much. Our sympathy to the family for your loss.
In l974, after your show, I sat on your lap, had my picture taken with you and was so happy to hear and meet you. You will be missed
One of life's cherished memories is of a friendship formed with Don Ho and his Aliis back in 1962 at Honey's in Waikiki, during the year I lived in the paradise known as Hawaii. My deepest sympathy is extended to his family, and to the world of others who loved him throughout the years. We were all blessed to have shared a space in time with him, and shall remember him always with aloha.
I offer my deepest, most sincere sympathies and condolences to the Don Ho family.
For over forty years I have loved listening to the music of this man who charmed and entertained our beautiful Hawaii. When I first saw him in Waikiki, he asked me to get up on stage and "taught me" the hula. What a fantastic gift he had of engaging his audience in such a warm, caring manner.
Each performance I felt swept away by his warmth and personality. The last time my husband and I saw him was on Maui at the Ritz Carlton, when we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, and, as usual, he took time to stop and talk to us.
One of my favorite songs is (and he told a poignant story about the man who wrote the song) "I'll Remember You" ... Yes ... Don, I'll Remember you.
Go with God.
Dear Don Ho, We mourn the passing of a most beautiful light and voice in our world and know that it will not be the same without you and your beautiful music. We will listen to your CDs and be comforted that you are now in a much more beautiful place, singing with the angels. The first time I heard "I'll Remember You" and The Hawaiian Wedding Song", the hairs on the back of my neck stood on end-it was love personafied. Aloha nui and Mahalo dear Don
I interviewed Do Ho for my radio show...He was very cooperative and interesting. I took a group there with my radio show...and we all loved him...He will be missed. Sally Hille, Nokomis, Florida
I enjoyed hearing your music as a little girl and seeing your handsome face on TV. My Mother adored you and played your albums by the hour. So when I think of "Tiny Bubbles", I think of my Mother as she would sing along with you...I also came to love your smooth, soft voice. Thank you for what you gave to us! My sympathy to your Family in their time of sorrow. You were too talented to be lost....I'm positive the Heavens are now filled with "Tiny Bubbles"... Bless you.
My Condolences To Don's Family, Friends, As Well As To All Those Who Knew Him And His Music. I Had The Pleasure Of Meeting Him After Seeing His Show On Waikiki Years Ago. He Will Surely Be Missed!
I had the pleasure of seeing DoN Ho twice in Hawaii. Once as a teenager and later as an adult. I fell in love at first sight, came back to Tennesee and bought all his music and was teased by friends constantly for being in love with Don Ho. You know what, I am 46 years old and I still am. Still My greatest thrill was getting called upon stage to dance on his show when I was a teenager. I still have the pics they took and now I will cherish them more than ever. Thanks Don and I will remember you. Cynthia LeCroy, Tennessee
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Oh My.... What can I say? I've loved Don's music for many years and got the opportunity to see him perform in person back in 1968 while on R&R in Honolulu during the Viet Nam War. It was the most thrilling experience in my life. He was such a gentleman and smooth performer, I felt like he was singing to only me. He was graced with such a beautiful talent, there will never be another like him. I know he is singing to the angels in heaven now and is still making the hearts flutter for all those up there who have ever known his music. May you rest in peace, Don. ALOHA
Please accept my deepest sympathies.
What a loss the world has had with the passing of Don Ho. My husband was stationed in Japan in 1984-85 and had a meeting at Hickman AFB, so I flew over and for 2 weeks. We stayed at the Rainbow Towers there in the Village, so we went to see Don Ho's show. What a man! After the show we got to talk to him and we both got to sit on his lap and had our picture taken with him, something we will never forget. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Don Ho. There will never be anyone to replace this man and in our hearts he rates up there with Elvis. They both are singing together now in the Lord's choir. God Bless all of you!
I have fond memories of Don Ho and the Alii's. As a little girl I loved listening to his music and one of my favorite songs were "A Lover's Prayer", "Sweet Someone", "E Lei Ka Lei Lei", and of course "I'll Remember You". I am now 45 and I still enjoyed listening to his music. You will be genuinely missed as one of Hawaii's greatest entertainer. May God Bless You and Your Family as we bid you a farewell.
Aloha Don Ho I will always remember you.
i loved don ho, he was the essence of hawaiian/pacific living.

" But he also appeared in I Dream of Jeannie and Charlie's Angels when it's Cheryl Ladds became a new angel in Angels in Paradise when he appeared himself played charlie townsends friend who answered subrina' question.

I HAVE FOND MEMORIES OF SEEING DON'S SHOW IN HAWAII MANY YEARS AGO. IT IS A GREAT LOSS TO THE ENTERTAINMENT FIELD OF HAWAII. ALOHA.
On behalf of my mother, Virginia "Ginger" Kuehl, who crossed over in 1971, and who so richly and thoroughly enjoyed the music of Don Ho, especially the song "Tiny Bubbles" - Heavenly "Aloha Oe."
Don's music brought smile to our life many many times. Tiny Bubbles
from the Republic of Hungary. Aloha! Thanks for the memories.
I GREW UP LOVING HIS VOICE. AND HIS SWEET SMILE. I WILL MISS HIM/
I will always remember watching your show on TV. You were so much fun to watch. You were a good soul.
The Don Ho show has a special memory for us, as we were married in Honolulu and spent our wedding day at his show 39 years ago. We returned in 2004 & took our family to see Don. We brought pictures from the 60's just for Don. What a gracious man and what fun to have him remember those days with us. He will be missed...Mahalo. God Bless his family.
I saw Do Ho in Hawaii many years ago and enjoyed him so very much , my heart goes out to the family, he was a great entertainer
I will miss taking my family to your shows when they came from the mainland. Aloha!

In My Pocket
I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.
My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.
They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.
Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.
But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.
LYNN (ST JOSEPH MISSOURI)
We were in Hawaii just last month and saw Don Ho there. We are very saddened by his passing. Thank you for my favourite song, I'll Remember You, which is coincidentally so appropriate at this time. Mahalo for all that you gave to the world. Rest in peace in paradise.

I grew up watching you and enjoyed your music. Your smiling face and beautiful voice will be sadly missed..forever.
You will be missed by many. Bless your family and friends.
I am so saddened there will be no more "tiny bubbles". You will be missed.
We had the pleasure of seeing Don Ho in New York City in the late sixties.(Ed Sullivan was also in the audience.) Everyone there wished he could sing all night. He will be greatly missed by many.His smile and beautiful voice wil be remembered.We shall keep him in our prayers.
Our condolences go out to the family of Don Ho and those who performed in his show.
We enjoyed every one of the shows we have seen during our 12 trips to Hawaii. Also, those in Ohio, Atlantic City, and Macomb Center & Soaring Eagle in Michigan.
Don you are now singing with the Angels in Heaven and will live on through your beautiful music.
You will remain in our thoughts and prayers.
With our final aloha.
YOUR GREAT MUSIC AND BEAUTIFUL SMILE WILL BE MISSED.
May God find all those left behind peace.
I remember Don as a young child but the best memory of him was when my son went to a juvenile boot camp. They made all the teenagers sing "Tiny Bubbles". My son had that song stuck in his mind for a long, long time.
My condolences to Don Ho's family. As a little girl I remember wanting to watch him all the time on his show and really enjoyed his songs especially Tiny Bubbles and his Hawaiian Wedding Song. From him I learned so many songs and performed in high school.
I had the pleasure of seeing Don's show and have a wonderful picture of him. He has blessed so many people and his life will forever be inprinted on our hearts. GodBless And Thankyou Don.
I wish to express my sympathy to the family. Don was one of my favorite singers. I got to see him in person in 1999. It was the thrill of my life. I will never forget the hug I received. I have his picture on my desk. May God Bless you.

We express our deepest sympathy to Don's family. We were to Hawaii 3 times from the mainland and always enjoyed Don's shows. I know he will be sadly missed.
To the Ho Family:
I had the distinct pleasure to attend the Don Ho show on each of my four visits to Hawaii. There are times I click on his web site just to hear Tiny Bubbles and it brings back many happy memories. Find peace in knowing the Mr. Ho did all he could, when he could and gave many people memories that will last a lifetime.

We lost my mother in law in Sept of last years but before she left us she got the chance to to too one of Don's show while on Vacation and having her picture taken with him was the best part of the whole thing so I know that when she hears the sound of TINY BUBBLES floating across the clouds see will smile again
Several years ago, my mother was able to see Don Ho's show in Hawaii with my sister. Mama was delighted to have her picture actually taken with him, and he kissed her on the cheek as it was taken. The surprise and delight on this lovely woman's face is priceless. Don will always hold a warm place in our family's heart for making our mother's trip so extra special ! Blessings on your family during your time of sorrow.

Don Ho-thank you for your lovely music. My niece and I have so many happy memories dancing to Tiny Bubbles in our grass skirts. Rest in Peace.
I've always such good memories of cool, calm, laid back Don Ho. Watching him on TV he made one feel as if everyone was a friend and he was always welcome into our living rooms.
Don...you've been a part of our lives since we first met you in the 1970's. Our trips to Oahu will never be quite the same again. But you'll always be with us in our hearts and with your music. Mahalo and Aloha Nui.

Aloha to the family of Don Ho. I was born and raised in Kaneohe and remember Honeys Beer Joint so well. Whenever I sing Tiny Bubbles at Karaoke, I always think of those good Hawaiian days. May God be with your family in this time of grief and sadness. He put Hawaii on the map of the world and will truly be missed for his music and all he represented as one of Hawaiis true treasure.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Don Ho. Keep the bubbles going for us in heaven Don. You will be missed always.
How fouanate we have been to have known someone that it saddens us so much to say good-bye...Go rest high on that mountain, for your work here on earth is done...
I remember listening to Don on records and tv when I was younger. He was a joy and a wonderful entertainer; he will be missed. Sympathies and comfort to the family.
My heart is with the Ho family in this sad time. We have lost a part of our great country and his music will last forever. Aloha, Don
Don Ho will be missed I remember when he appeared on the Brady Bunch TV show one year. And he had many other songs beyond Tiny bubbles that he performed that was just as great but, not as highly publisized. My sympathy goes out to the family and good friends of Don Ho, he will be missed.
The Don Ho Family, I so much appricated his music and I thank all of you for sharing Don with all his fans. I'm so glad I got to see Don even had my picture taken with him when I made my first trip to Hawaii in 1999. He is greatly missed."Tiny Bubbles" will live on.
I remember watching Don Ho as a youngster. I really liked him. Prayers go out to his family.
GOD BLESS DON HO,BOBBY& HONEYGIRL, MAUI,HAWAII
I wanted to give my sympathy to the Don Ho Family. I remember watching his TV show every day. Don Ho's beautiful voice transported me to the Islands from my Texas home. My prayers will be with his family. May God Bless you.
How very glad I am that I decided to be in Don Ho's audience in 2005 while in Oahu for a conference. He was absolutely delightful and I knew I was in the presence of a legend. Wonderful, wonderful memories.
Our deepest sympathy to the Ho ohana. We visited HI in May 2002, and "The Don Ho Show" was our first priority. The show was awesome, and we had our picture taken with Mr. Ho (what a treasure!). When he noticed my husband's Penn State shirt, he gave a thumbs up, because the Hawaii (boys) volleyball team had just defeated the Penn State team -- had some fun with that one!
I always watched "The Don Ho Show" on television, in the 70s, and especially enjoyed the Christmas show when he had a pig roast and broadcast on the beach -- they were the best!
We love his music -- always have and always will. The smoothness in his voice is as special as the man who is singing. I'm sure he's part of the great heavenly choir, now.
He is dearly missed -- any future visits to HI will not be the same for us. May God bless you all in this time of sorrow, and may special memories bring you comfort.
I'll remember you, long after this. I saw your show at the Circle Star in Redwood City, Ca in 1971 or 72; anyway, you were the best and I will always remember you!!! Love you, a fan forever.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to the Ho family. We had the pleasure of enjoying Don's spectacular show at the Hilton Hawaiian Village for our 25th anniversary in 1988. He had his own dinner theater there. We had the chance to have our picture taken with Don. What a wonderful evening we had listening to him sing. Sincerely, Mr.& Mrs. Raymond & Patricia Brunet
Even though my wife and I were only lucky enough to see Mr. Ho in concert twice, we love introducing him to our thirtysomething generation. Thanks to the Ho family for sharing this wonderful entertainer with the world.
Don was a great singer remember him singing to us at a night club many years ago.
I will miss Don Ho singing
Tiny Bubbles which is my favorite song.
TO THE FAMILY OF DEAR DON HO
THANK YOU FOR SHARING DON HO WITH THE WORLD.
HE GAVES US MUCH JOY AND HAPPINESS.
TINY BUBBLES FOREVER!!!
ALWAYS, ALMA RENNER
My deepest symphathy to the Ho Family. He was such a great singer. I love hearing him sing Tiny Bubbles. He will be missed!!! May god hold him close to him.
My deepest sympathies to the Ho family. My grandmother and I used to spend many afternoons playing "Tiny Bubbles". He will be missed.
My deepest sympathy to the Ho family. Enjoyed your show and meeting with you in Hawaii. You will be sorely missed. Thanks for being a part of my life!
My deepest sympathy to the Ho family members.
I loved to hear him sing...he brought much pleasure with his music.
May he rest in peace!
He sent my special education students free tickets to his show. We just needed to get to Hawaii from Kansas. He also sent a relaxing CD that we used often. I should have expressed my thanks in person and I regret now, not being able to do so. GOOD GUY
To The Ho Family;
I would like to extend my deepest sympathies for your loss. I'm certain that Don Ho is singing with the angels in God's Choir.
Rest In Peace, Don Ho.
My favorite memory of Don Ho was when he appeared on an episode of "The Brady Bunch."
May God Bless you and keep you and your "Tiny Bubbles."
He will be fondly rememberd. Friends of Ben and Mary Ho. Tom and Jay Erickson
SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR LOSS. I TOO HAVE MOST ENJOYED THE MUSIC OF MR. DON HO.
My Deepest Sympathy To The Family. I enjoyed your Tv Show and so glad I met you in Hawaii and back home. I enjoyed your show in Hawaii love Tiny Bubbles. Thanks for being part of my life. Bless you Aloha
To the family of Mr. Don Ho may you find comfort in God's words at John 5:28 and 29 that read "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." May you draw close to God (Exodus 6:3; Psalm 83:18) in prayer, and the Bible promises that "he himself will sustain you."---Psalm 55:22
Dear Ho Family:
Are deepest sympathy to all of you at this difficult time of great loss. Love & Prayers of peace, comfort and healing to all.
Love, The Zazzera's
My deepest sympathy to the Ho Family. He touched so many hearts with his music, humor and smile. He will be sorely missed, but always remembered.
Thank you Don Ho for your music. I enjoy listening to Tiny Bubbles and Beautiful Kaui.
I will remember your family in my thoughts and prayers.
Rest In Peace. ALOHA!!!
He was the ageless voice of Hawaii. I loved his music and his happiness to be performing for the people.
What a wonderful man and such a loss to Hawaii and to all musicians everywhere.
No doubt, he is singing "Tiny Bubbles" to a sell out crowd in Heaven now.
I am so sorry for your loss. I finally got to meet Don Ho Last year,on my husband and mine 30th. also got to talk to him. He is always special in my heart. Will miss him dearly! But he will live in our hearts forever.
Deepest Sympathy To The Family.
He brought so much joy, laughter and spirit.
Thank you Don Ho!!
Father we entrust our brother Don to your mercy. You loved him greatly in this life: now that he is freed from all its cares, give him happiness and peace forever. Welcome him now into paradise where there will be no more sorrow, no more weeping or pain, but only peace and joy with Jesus your Son, and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
May God hold Don in the palm of His hand. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My deepest sympathy.
Don Ho was such a wonderful entertainer and his music brought joy to so many. His voice will live on forever in the hearts of us all.
To all who knew Don Ho, and especially to his family,
He was a very special man and a man who gave to all. He was so wonderful to the Vietnam soldiers, and their families as they they visited the island for R&R. He never turned anyone away that wanted to talk, or even harmonize for a moment. His album that he signed for my husband and I will always be treasured as his voice was the sweetest, and I'm sure that God has a new choir voice today.
My parents had the privilege of seeing Don Ho in October of 1978 while on a trip to Hawaii for their 35th Wedding Anniversary, and my Mom even had the chance to be up on stage with him. I still have the picture that was taken with my Mom and Mr. Ho backstage after that show. When my Mom and I made a trip to Hawaii in 1987, we had a chance to see him perform. What an absolutely marvelous entertainer, as well as a very gracious person. Even though his voice has now been silenced here on earth, his music will live on forever. Well done, good and faitfhul servant of the Lord.
To the Family of Don Ho,
My deepest sympathy goes out to you.
We have enjoyed many many unforgetable Don Ho shows. He will always be in our hearts. Take care & God bless.
I was Blessed to have seen Don twice in my life. Once was in Oct of 1968 and the other was July of 2005. Different times, different wars. But Don was go gracious and respectful to the servicemen and their families both times. The character of the man! I love all of Don's music, but have two favorites, "Suck 'Em Up" (I still have the old brown mug)and this one. Don sang this song to "our dearest friends from all over the world when we send them back home." To you, Don, I now say' "You may go. I'll let you go. May God Bless You. You'll be mine, wherever you may be. It's a warning, to say Aloha, for I'll never find another Kanaha like you!"
Thoughts and prayers to your Ohana.
You were unique and Hawaii won't be the same without you. I still have the Hawaiin dress I made especially for your show 35 yrs ago. I will never forget my friend & I singing "Jeremiah was a Bullfrog" on your stage - what a hoot!
To the family of Don Ho:
I just want to let you know how sorry I am for your loss. Mr Ho was so much a part of my childhood. I have such fond memories of his music. I used to sing Tiny Bubbles and Pearly Shells to my own children when they were younger to soothe them. They now sing them to their children, these songs have become tradition for our family. What a legend he is. God bless you!
We were so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.
MY DEEPESST SYMPATHY TO THE HO FAMILY AND FRIENDS. HE TOUCHED THE HEARTS OF MILLLIONS WITH HIS MUSIC , SMILE, AND HUMOR. HE WILL BE MISSED, BUT ALWAYS REMEMBERED.
May Don Ho's family draw comfort from the Scriptures and know that one day death will be no more. You all have my sympathies.
My husband and I danced to "Hawaiian Wedding Song" on our wedding day 8 1/2 years ago. You will be missed.
To the family of Don Ho, I had the pleasure of seeing Don perform when I visited Hawaii in 1972. Seeing him was the highlight of my vacation. Thanks for the memories, Mr. Ho. Sincerely,
i met don ho during a show on the island of oahu my mom and i got up on the stage and had a ball!! what a great entertainer and a loving man he was to the audience. i was one of the many lucky ones. when getting off the stage don kissed me! was i ever a happy camper!! i have a picture of him kissing me that i keep right in the living room for everyone to see.by the way my mom also had the privilege of a kiss too!! rest in peace don you truly are an inspiration to us all. "i'll remember you" that was my special song i can still see you singing that. aloha
My sympathy to the family of Don. One thing that will help you get through this situation is God's word the Bible. And there he assures us: "Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart and those who are crushed in spirit he saves. The Bible gives you hope of seeing Don again right here on a paradise earth in the very near future. It also promise us that our enemy death will be no more. May these words give you a measure of comfort and strength to endure in this time of such deep sorrow.
I will miss you I loved all your music and i will keep on playing it..it made me feel warm inside i will cry today when i play it all day I will miss you....Peace my friend...Peace
A great loss to all. Aloha Don Ho. You will be missed. Our sympathy to the Ho family.

I've been in the music and entertaining business a very long time. I thought I knew everything there was to know about show business until I got a chance to perform with you. Even though I only got to perform with you the last four years of your life as your bass player,I always learned something new about show business and how to entertain your udiences while having them leave every show with a smile on their faces as if to say "thank you that was an awesome show. Much Mahalos for giving me the chance and the oppertunity to be a part of your legacy. I will always cherish in my heart the wonderful memmories we shared on stage together. We will all truely miss you Don. You truly are a legend. Aloha.

Don's show was the highlight of my Hawaiian experience. He was so gracious after the show to all of his fans and yet he made each lady there think she was the most special person. It didn't take long to realize his worth was not in his beautiful voice but in his loving kindness.

I was lucky enough to spend almost every night at Duke's in the summer of 1968 sitting in "Ho's Harem" in front of the stage watching the Don Ho Show. I have such fond memories of that magical time seeing an amazing performer delight the crowd. I will miss him very much and a visit to HNL just won't be the same. Aloha and Mahalo for all the memories.
MR HO YOU WERE A GOOD MAN AND YOU WILL BE MISSED
Don Ho was a wonderful inspiration for fun stuff. His humor and sweet singing warmed my heart.
Don was my most favorite of all hawaian singers.They always sing his songs at the Mai-Kai in Fort Lauderdale in tribute to Him. He was part of America like Elvis. I will miss him very much but he is in all of our hearts forever.Roger Mann,Oakland Park,Florida
Don Ho had the soothest voice- he will be missed!
When my daughter was 8 she had a birthday party, the theme Hawaiian Luau. I searched and searched for recordings by Don Ho knowning the only way to make it truly Hawaiian and truly special was to have him 'there'. He had a beautiful, calming voice which brought wonderful memories and fun times to my daughter's party and to her friends as they swayed to "Tiny Bubbles" in their little grass skirts. She is now in her thirties and when she read Mr. Ho had died she felt sad but immediately the fond memories he brought to her special day came back. My condolences to Mr. Ho's family, he was a special man and a talented singer.
My favorite hawaiin caruso, God will now be able to see you sing with angels
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family at this time of sorrow.
YOU WERE A GREAT SINGER,REAST IN PEACE, DON HO
Don Ho was truly a great entertainer and friend who I met while playing the Hawaiian Open. His stories were amazing and his gentle spirit will live on in Hawaii and for those who knew him forever. I will miss you Don Ho!

When my children were still taking naps, they would watch Don Ho at the noon hour, they knew that as soon as he was done singing "Tiny Bubbles", it was time for their nap. They are in their 30's now and still remember him fondly. A sweet voice is in heaven. May he sing the tiny angels in heaven to their naps.
ALOHA MR. HO. REST IN PEACE.
To Don's family - My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sorrow. To Don - Please blow some tiny bubbles from me for my son, Jason, who is up in Heaven with you!

On my first visit to Hawaii in October 1965 I remember seeing Don at the International Market Place. My most favorite song was "I'll Remember You" and I will. God Bless.
While on R&R from Vietnam, I had the occasion to meet Don Ho as he performed at the International Market place in Honoluli. He was very gracious to those of us on R&R and even took a group of us to his home for an early morning breakfast. I will never forget his kindness at a time when we were scorned.
Mahalo to you Don Ho and the most beautiful voice of the Islands, I love. You linger in my memories. The Islands will not be the same without you. Aloha

In the summer of 1968 I spent most every night at Duke's sitting in front of the stage in "Ho's Harem." I have such fond memories of Don Ho and feel a personal sense of loss. There's no one else like Don Ho and he will be missed by so many friends and fans.

TINY BUBBLES, I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU, WHEN I GET TO HAWAII I WANTED TO SEE YOUR SHOW, BUT NOW YOU WILL BE IN HEAVEN HAVING YOUR SHOW THERE , DON YOU WILL BE MISSED GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY THERESA , FROM PHILA PA
I was so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.
When I was stationed at Scofield Barracks. 69th Armor , Co. A. from 1960-1963, several of us soldiers every week-end (when we were not on the big island) would go to Little Joes restaurant at Waikiki Beach , then to the International Market Place to see Don Ho sing every chance we got. He always sang "pearly shells". I will never forget his smooth voice.
I'm sorry he has passed. I'll bet he is singing "pearly shells" in heaven for God, our creator, and Jesus, our Lord and savior. God bless him and his family.
Aloha, my friend ........... rest in peace ..... Mahalo

Aloha O'e.Hana Hou Braddah.Mahalo Hui for the good times. until we meet again
Back in 1984, my husband Tom and I went to one of Don's shows, and had such a wonderful evening, it was one of the best shows we had ever been to. I have a picture of Don kissing me, and afterwards, we went back stage, and he signed it for us. This will be something that I will always treasure.
I enjoyed his songs. In 1965, we got to see a live show. He was truly one of the greatest singers. He will be missed
Are you dancing with my grandmother and Hilo Hattie and all the others? Are you doing the Hula Hop and teasing someone about a red opu?
Someday, Don, we will see you.
Thank you for the joy you spread. Three generations of Arnolds thank you and wish you good journey.
My mother and I greatly enjoyed seeing Don Ho in performance during our stay in Honolulu in June 1996. He put on a fun-filled show and was courteous and friendly when we posed for a photo with him afterward and he autographed it. He was one-of-a-kind and will be missed by many.
When Don performs at the Circle Star Theatre in San Carlos, CA in the late 60's I always wanted to hear him sing his favorite song,"Tiny Bubbles". And when he sang "I'll Remember You", in tribute to his great friend, Kui Lee, who also the composer of the song, I have tears in my eyes. Thanks for the memories, Don. And like the song said, "I'll Remember You". We will miss you and your beautiful voice. May you rest in peace.
I have always enjoyed your performance. You will be missed by many of us. Hawai'i won't be the same without you. I am sure you will bring smiles to everyone where you are going to be as you did to us in this world.
Who wouldn't feel bad about this? Don Ho.
What a wonderful man and what a wonderful voice who sang about such beautiful things with such a sincere sentiment. I'm saddened....Rest in Peace....
I am sorry to hear of the loss of such a great singer. God promises a day when there will be no more sorrow, pain or death. Under Jesus rulership there will be a new Heaven and New Earth. (Rev.21:1-4)
Sorry, so sorry to hear about Don., I followed him all the way through his illness, especially was excited during the time he started doing better. I have the exact same type of illness Don had. Such a great Guy, he will be truly missed, but, in heaven looking down upon us.
I enjoyed his music and personality when I saw him on TV. He will be missed.
With my Mother, I watched your show as a child. It took my imagination miles from the farm where we lived and for an hour in the mornings I was there with you in paradise. I look forward to one day meeting you in paradise.
Dear Uncle Don...I know Daddy has greeted you with a "Pehea 'oe, Braddah" and an ever affectionate embrace. He always told my brothers and I about your antics at Kamehameha and the good times you both had in Kaneohe. All our Aloha and prayers to the Ho Family.
Me Ke Aloha Pumehana

My name is Don Holt. Over the years when I was introduced or answered the phone at businesses I worked for, I would be asked, "Like the Hawaiian singer?" Being a salesman at one point I told a lady that I would put on a Hawaiian shirt and sing "Tiny Bubbles" if she would come in and make a purchase.
Don Ho you will be sorely missed. I always enjoyed your music. Aloha.

I loved Don Ho and Tiny Bubbles was one on my favorites songs. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. May your memories bring you comfort.
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life’s routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
I am so sorry. My husband and I are going to Oahu in June and really wanted to see him. Best wishes to the family.
Pearly Shells (pearly shells)
From the ocean (from the ocean)
Shining in the sun (shining in the sun)
Covering the shore (covering the shore)
When I see them (when I see them)
My heart tells me that I love you
More than all the little pearly shells
More than all those little pearly shells
For every grain of sand upon the beach
I've got a kiss for you
And I've got more left over
For each star that twinkles in the blue
One of my all time favorites. My daughter used to sing tiny bubbles to her grandpa when she was 2 years old. He will be very missed.
I am so sorry for Don's loss. My prayers and wishes go to his family, friends and community. Thank you for giving us your beautiful voice! May your spirit fly free through the islands...
We'll miss you Don! Thanks for the years of fantastic entertainment. My God be with you.
We loved YOU and your beautiful islands. We will miss you but not forget you.
YOU WILL BE MISSED! REST IN PEACE OLD FRIEND, REST IN PEACE. MAY GOD CARRY YOUR SOUL TO A PEACEFUL, RESTFUL PLACE. JEANNE

I had the opportunity to see Don Ho in Hawaii several years ago. He has always been one of my favorite singers. My sympathies to his family and to all of Hawaii.
While I'm not too familiar with Don Ho's music, he has always inextricably been tied to Hawai`i to me. My first visit to his home islands is coming up in a few months and I was hoping to hear him perform. I'm saddened to read about his passing, but he has left us with a brilliant history to smile back upon.
You will be greatly missed.We were never lucky enough to see you perform in person but my mom must haved played Tiny Bubbles a million times when I was growing up, and we would see you on all the talk shows of those days. You were a great and funny man. God Bless you and your family at this time. The world has lost a legend.
God Bless Mr. Ho - he was pure class and a fine representative of the Hawaiian culture.
Hard to believe Mr. Waikiki is gone.
As one who brought so much pleasure to so many, Don has moved on to "gigging" in that area of our minds that religions call Holy. Peace to all.
You are now in heaven with the great Kahuna in the Sky and singing to your hearts content. You brought Hawaii to many of us with the sound of your voice and sweet personality. A great big MAHALO and see you in the future my friend.
Our deepest sympathies to the Family. Thank You Mr. Don Ho for the catchy Signature Tune of "Tiny Bubbles".
DON Has put many smiles and wonderful feelings with the song tiny bubbles, May he rest in peace.God Bless.I WENT TO SEE HIM WHEN I WAS VISITING MY DAUGHTER WHO WAS IN THE NAVY ON FORD ISLAND IN PEARL HARBOR.

In My Pocket
I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.
My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.
They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.
Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.
But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.
