Aloha, Josh!


In Loving Memory
Joshua Kalai Nakata, 23
Mililani, Hawaii


May you rest in peace.
You died doing what you loved most, surfing the North Shore's banzai pipeline.
I remember you jovially teasing Gary as Jessi walked up the path to your house carrying an Easter Basket.  I remember your Mom "borrowing" Jessi because Gary will not go to his football practice not unless Jessi was there . I can still hear you and Chaz giggling and chanting, "Gary has a girlfriend!" at the back of your Mom's van when Gary came with a Teddy Bear and flowers for Jessi when we got in a car accident.
I feel for your Mom and Dad, Belinda and Gary Senior, for I would not like to survive any of my children. I wish I could hug Gary, Chaz and Rose, your brothers and sister, for I know their hearts are breaking.
 Aloha!  Hope the surf's up always where you are.
