An Ocean Farewell for a Hawaii Legend

By Leland Kim

WAIKIKI (KHNL) - Flower petals cascade from Chopper 8, marking Don Ho's final resting place. As these floral tears fall, Hawaii mourns the loss of its beloved native son.

A fireboat sprays water over the scene, creating a colorful tribute synonymous with Hawaii.

Ho's family caravan to the ocean, for a final aloha. Each of his children carries part of his ashes, carefully wrapped in ti leaves.

They scatter Ho's remains in a place where he spent a lot of his time, in a place that flows onto the island he loved so much.

As his children make their way back to shore, they'll remember their dad from the sparkle of the ocean, to the love in their hearts.

They bid aloha.

Until they meet him again.
