Leanora L (Pasing) Kauwe To My nieces October 4, 2015
I have very fond memories of your sister  Gloria. She taught me sign language in brief form & all the alphabets. She was such a beautiful person inside & out & no one would  have known that she had a speech impairment until she spoke. She brought up beautiful children whom I've  had the privilege of meeting them all as youngsters when they visited in Hawaii. My sister always had that beautiful you Sis...God  gained another Angel last nephew David loved Hawaii & his grandfather. The last I spoke to David..he called me from Florida at 12:00 a.m. telling me he wanted to come home to Hawaii to live & I told him he is always welcome home in you all
Nicole Knapp The last time... April 23, 2014
     The last time I seen Grandma Gloria was when My son Jayden Lee Brown was around 4 months old. I never thought I would have gotten the chance to ever see my grand mother again, let alone both Auntie Dori and Auntie Yo. It was such a great moment that Grandma Gloria was able to see him. He might not remember, but I will never forget. 
       The funniest thing about the visit is grandma gloria thinking I was still pregnant. Then watching my Auntie Dori and Aunti Yo explain to grandma I just had a baby. Im so glad I got to see grandma. It was the last time I seen her. Yet, I got a chance to hug her and tell her I love her as a adult.
    I love you Grandma...
     Thank you Aunti Yo and Aunti Dori for making it possible.

En realidad es muy triste la muerte de un ser tan querido,la nostalgia y la pena embarga nuestras vidas.

Me ayudo mucho una esperanza que  me dio paz y tranquilidad,sabe usted que en la palabra de Dios,la Santa Biblia,nos trasmite palabras que nos da fuerza y fortaleza para seguir, si usted busca en su propio ejemplar biblico en el libro de San Juan capitulo 5 versiculos 28 y 29 escribe No se maravillen de esto,porque viene la hora en que todos los que estan en las tumbas,escuchara su voz, la voz de Jesucristo,y saldran¡¡¡¡

Se imagina que esperanza tan extraordinaria¡¡¡¡¡,y esta al alcance de usted y su familia,si usted vuelve a buscar en su propia biblia en el libro de Revelacion o Apocalipsis capitulo 21 versiculo 4 escribe:Dios limpiara toda lagrima de sus ojos la muerte ya no sera mas,ni existira mas lamento ni clamor.
