around 12:18 AM HST, our beloved mountain died. His massive
body killed him. And one of Hawai'i's best
left us. Au'we!! It's crying time for those
who love Hawaiian music And him. This page is my
tribute to IZ. He deserves better than
plenty,IZ for being you. And blessing us with your
life. It wuz too little time for us. But your music
& never ending malama for Hawai'i
will live in our hearts forever.
for our AlohaLand, this ai'na, our people, our music
& aloha spirit was way more than we had any right to
There's a humongeous hole & very
deep valley in my heart without you.
Even your music
doesn't heal the pain tonite."
And even if
I know you're in a better place, I'll still miss seeing
you live on the KCCN & daKINE Ray-Gee-Oh.
