"Don't be sad for me, we all come to this world to be a tourist, enjoy life, sightseeing, do good deeds and I just so happened to leave earlier than others. I have had 67 years of exhilarating adventures with family and many wonderful friends from all around the world. Thank you to everyone who has brought JOY to my life! Aloha and A Hui Hou (until we meet again). …"
