My father passed away. He was loved and respected by the people of Hawaii and Norrhern California. He was a son, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, journalist, coach and mentor to many.
May 19, 2021 My father is finally home!! We had some issues getting him back to Maui for the rest of his physical therapy. I was on Maui for a week then back on Oahu. I did manage to get my swaps out but was unable to rate during that time. I also had a swap returned to sender. I have to contact that swap partner and update them. If you are waiting on a sticker bag swap from me, I will be re-sending Saturday. I will also be mailing out wishl list requests for the month of April for my group obligations. I was unable to get to the post office during my 5 days on Maui before I had to go back to Oahu. Mahalo again for everyone's kind words, thoughts and prayers. I really appreciate it. Aloha ~ T.
April 23, 2021 8:02pm HAST: I have had a health issue I am dealing with, that I became aware of on 4/17 as well as my father was hospitalized 4/20. I was able to send out the 2 swaps I had due during that time, but I have not been able to rate or post on my Groups Wishlist board or send out the wishlist items I intended to mail. I am very sorry for not being able to post and rate. I will be contacting the founders of my groups but may not until tomorrow 4/24. I will reply to all messages by 4/25. Again apologies
March 13, 2021 My whole state and specifically my island has been under flash flood advisory and warnings and actual flooding all week and it has just been extended through the weekend. One of our damns broke and many roads have been washed away. The USPS has been affected bc many workers are unable to get to work or have been evacuated from their homes. Mail is going to be picked up as usual but may be backed up at the professing center awaiting distribution to Oahu. We lost one window due to high winds and rain but were able to get it replaced before the second round of rain. Again, if you don't receive something from me or if I have failed to rate you, please please reach out! Communication Friends 🤙🏾.
February 3, 2021 Please let me know if you haven't received something from me. I am reconciling and archiving my Nov, Dec and January swaps. I have messaged all US swappers that have not rated me on swaps I have mailed prior to January 15th. If you receive a swap from me, please rate! If not, I will think you haven't recieved the swap and will be contacting you to see if I need to resend.
Update December 21, 2020: I lost my first cousin and a classmate yesterday due to COVID. My cousin was hospitalized in Puerto Rico and my friend had relocated to Utah with his family. WEAR A MASK. PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING. STAY SAFE. Each of these men have families and children that depend on them. They both contracted the virus from work. Be kind to each other and protect your self and your loved ones. I have contacted the one person whose swap went out late.
Rest easy Marco. Akua bless and protect Malu 🙌🏽
