Mahalo Aunt Beth!

BIG THANKS to my Aunt Beth, who graciously performed at my mom's luau! Beth is a talented musician, and she brought her ukelele to play for us at the party. She sang two songs, and one was especially meaningful to me. Several years ago, Beth put lyrics to the piano music my dad wrote for me as a baby. At the luau, she sang and played, "Denise's Song" for everyone to enjoy. This was so moving to me, as it brought back many memories of my dad, and of many wonderful years and memories of Beth. Thank you Aunt Beth, for flying out to the celebration to sing this just for us, or most of all for being such an important part of my life! As soon as we have photos to post, we will share those of Beth performing, and all the wonderful images from the day!
