Details for Saturday's 'Remembrance Ceremony for Sen. Daniel Inouye'

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Governor Neil Abercrombie Thursday announced details of a special ceremony at the State Capitol to honor U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye. The people of Hawaii are invited to pay their final respects to a national hero. 

On Saturday, Dec. 22, Senator Inouye will lie in state from 5 p.m. to midnight in the State Capitol Rotunda. A short program will commence with the arrival of the senator's casket.

Public viewing will begin after the program for all to show their aloha to Senator Inouye with respect and quiet dignity.

The family has requested no flowers. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Daniel K. Inouye Fund, care of the Hawaii Community Foundation. The fund was created at the request of the senator's widow, Irene Hirano Inouye.

There will be a condolence book available for people to sign from 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21, in the Governor's Office. Condolence books will also be available at the Lying in State service on Saturday.
