Dear Mom and Dad

I walked to the dentist this morning and thought about the transitions that have taken place since my little brother passed away.

It was raining and sunny all at the same time. You know the types of days you only see in Hawai’i

The brightest rainbow I had ever seen painted the morning sky.

I stopped and took the time to look at this symbol of hope that we so often pass by on the way to somewhere to do something that is all toooften lost inthe obscurity of everyday life.

I thanked Adam for the new teeth I was about to receive and once again asked God why him and not me.

A physician who had befriendedme many years ago had once told me on a day when I was sorry that I had ever been born that "It was not up to me.’

This morning astill small voice whispered the rest of the answer to themost difficult question I have ever asked.

Who decides why some leave early and otherslike me seem to be living on borrowed time?

The answer God

I then thanked God for my parents my family and friends and to help me aspire to the attributes that Adam seemed so well known for by those he worked with

Humility and Grace

I love both of you and hope that the memories of your youngest son are able to be transformed from the greatest loss our family has everknown intoa sense of gratitude for the way he lived his life

Thank You for the aloha shirts and the boxers

With Much Aloha
