"Mr. Gibo, your smile, sense of humor and laughter will always be remembered.  Thank you for all the wonderful memories I got to share with you, whenever I hung out with Joy in both Okinawa and Hawaii.
I pray that you are at peace now and maybe enjoying a beer or two up in heaven with my dad and the other "Hawaii-Okinawa" boys at the Heavenly Bar.

Joy, Lisa and Mrs. Gibo - All of you took really good care of your dad & husband for so many years - gokurosama.  Although he may be physically gone now, please remember that he will continue to live on in your hearts.  I pray you find comfort and peace in the memories you all shared as a family.  Please take care.

"Mr.Gibo, I will always remember you with your kind smile.  Your home was filled with women (Baachan, Mrs. Gibo, Lisa and Joy).  You were the quiet man, who protected and loved them.  

Joy and Family, please find comfort that Mr. Gibo is always with you in your hearts.

With warmest aloha,

"Aunty Toshiko, Lisa and Joy,
     We were so saddened to hear of Uncle Sei's passing, but feel he is now in a better place and resting peacefully.  I'll always remember Uncle Sei's cheerful and happy disposition, always smiling and brightening up our gatherings.  I'm sure he is looking down at us along with Gichan, Baban, Uncle Juni and Uncle Donald,.. and watching over us.  You are all in our thoughts, hearts and prayers.
p.s.  I loved looking at the old family pictures... so precious!"
