This is the toughest day…when I head to the airport. It was always hard to leave the beautiful surroundings that has been my “home” for the last couple of weeks. This is a place that holds so many great memories for me and I make new ones with each visit.
Now, it holds so much more. So I will take my last beach walk and look across the ocean and wish the island of Lanai a final ‘good morning’ and I will look for that last piece of sea glass to add to the collection.
The hardest part is saying a farewell to the wonderful people here who make my landing on Maui a soft one. They know how emotional a journey this is and it is in their care, I leave Leroy’s spirit. They are the ‘spirit keepers’ and they do a wonderful job. He’s in good hands.
I’ll say my good-bye’s but they make it very clear, there are no good-bye’s here…A HUI HOU is the saying and they stick to it….’Till We Meet Again
I’m off to the beach now….toes in the sand, eye’s fixed on the ocean and the words, A HUI HOU on my lips…Leroy, can you hear me how?
I hope so!!
