This is my family on my father’s side…the Mira side. My grandparents lived in Kekaha and owned a candy store in Kekaha, “Mira’s Sweet Shop.” So we decided our 2015 family reunion should rightly be held in Kekaha. Family came from Arizona, California, Oregon, Montana, Oahu, Maui, Kauai…but none from Kekaha. There are no Miras in Kekaha anymore.
There was much laughter, “talking story,” reminiscing, music…actually lots of music. The last time my sons and their first cousins were all together was 24 years ago. That is too much time in between.
Two weeks later, one of the cousins in the picture above would suddenly pass away. He was not even 50 years old. So grateful that the last memory we shared with him was at our family reunion.
This is my Hawaii Life. Blessed.
