Ka Hali'a Aloha...

The loving memory of a beautiful life...beloved Boot...how do you sum up 641,605 hours of a man's beautiful life in 2 hours? You can't. You can only let the spirit of love help you understand how every day of our life is a gift from Ke Akua. And every second of Boot's life was a gift to the world...

Ua kaʻi ka ʻaha. The prayer is rendered...

...an 'aha aloha, gathering of love...gathering of spirit...

Beautiful dignified strength...

...an ahu of tribute, an expression of love...

...na ʻōpio ʻōlino...brilliant youth...

...sharing memories...

...deep reflection on the value of our lives...

...so many lessons for life in fond remembrances...

...fragile fragrant beauty intertwined in strands of love binding all of us...

...the memories of time spent together...

...of beautiful things in life learned...

...of shared secrets and revelations...

...of untold gifts of patience and understanding...

...of light hearted gifts of sunshine...

...of a legacy to 'ohana to carry on...

...sharing the life of the 'ohana...

...engaging the beautiful ʻōpio...

...creating lasting memories of love...

...a chance to grow...

...continuing lessons...

...a legacy of hope...

...the sound of the ancestors calling out through Hālawa...

...an 'aha of loving tribute...

He ʻōlino aloha kēia iāʻoe ē...this is a bright ray of love for you...

...where sorrow rules, hope springs eternal...

...for the passage of a life brings us all closer to God...

...beautiful profound words to inspire spirit...

...beautiful profound thoughts to inspire inside...

...Ke Akua brings forth na mamo...

...to lift and carry our precious grieving love into the Heavens...

...to gently join the eternal love of the ancestors...

...in the beautiful unrelenting spirit of the children...

...for there is still an unyielding dream...

...of beautiful Lāhui...

...for the ever-awakening future of our world...

...we shall rise bonded in love, reaching together towards the light...softly caressed in the life giving tears of Kane...

...and we shall hold fast to all that we treasure and love in this world...

...for love, humility and forgiveness shall release the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. Aloha. In the simple loving remembrance of a humble, giving, caring, kind, life. Boot. You have arrived. And your love, humility, forgiveness and deep Aloha for all of us shall bring us home too...Ke Akua pu...
