This is a photo from my grandfathers memorial service Dec 7th 2008 at the USS Utah in Pearl Harbor. This was the finish of the 21 gun salute. It was a very moving event. I want to commend the men and women in the Navy that played a part in putting this together.

    thank you so much for your wonderful comments. It was amazing how they take care of their own even in death. These photos are close to my heart obviously, but still open to critique.

    Aloha kakahiaka Rhonda. Mahalo for your kind note. I am so sorry to learn that you lost your beloved Grandfather. This is a lovely image of the memorial service you and your family held for him in his honour. I invite you to add them to my Hawai’i ~ Aloha Na’au group, Soul Mates, Dimensions, as well as the other groups I host which you think would be appropriate. I wish you much love and every happiness.

    Aloha e Malama pono,

    What a precious and moving service this must have been for you. I am certain that your grandfather was looking down from above. This is a wonderful image and an instant favorite for me.

  • thank you Marjorie. Yes, it was very moving and still is when I look through the photos. The Military did a superb job in honoring our loved one. My deepest thanks to everyone involved in it. Thanks so much for stopping by.
