E hoʻomaha i ka maluhia, e kuʻu hoaloha Mike

I koʻu neʻe mua mai Virginia Beach a hiki i Denver, ʻo wau wale nō a me kaʻu mau keiki ʻelua. He mea weliweli loa ia ... kahi hana hou, kahi kūlanakauhale hou, ua pau kaʻu male ʻana, a ua hala kaʻu mālama kālā. No ka mālama kālā ʻana, lawe au i ke kaʻaahi māmā e hana i kēlā me kēia lā. Ma hope o kekahi mau pule, ua kamaʻilio liʻiliʻi wau me kahi kāne ma ke kaʻa uila i kapa ʻia ʻo Mike.

He kiʻi kēia naʻu i loaʻa ma kā Mika keiki ʻaoʻao.

ʻO kēia kahi kiʻi i loaʻa iaʻu ma ka pūnaewele a kā Mike keiki.

He kāne kiʻekiʻe ʻo Mike. He kanaka nunui loa wau, no laila paha ke kumu a mākou i kuʻi ai. Ma hope o ka ʻike ʻana iā Mike, ua ʻike wau ua hana ʻo ia ma ke ʻano he Marshall i pale aku i nā luna aupuni pekelala ma ke kaona. Me 9/11, he hana koʻikoʻi kā Mike a aloha ʻo ia i ke kuleana. ʻAʻole i pau kāna ʻuhane pale i nā ʻanuʻu o ka ʻaha. ʻIke pinepine wau iā Mike e loaʻa ana kahi noho ma ke kaʻaahi māmā ma waena o ka mea ʻona a me ke koena o nā mea kaʻa. I waenakonu o kā mākou kamaʻilio ʻana, ʻike wau ua nalo koʻu nānā ʻana i kona nānā ʻana i nā poʻe ʻē aʻe. ʻAʻole lākou i ʻike aia ʻo ia ma laila e pale ana iā lākou.

He manawa kēia i loko o koʻu ola kahi aʻu e nui ai nā nīnau a ʻaʻole nui nā pane. Ua hoʻomaka wau e hele i ka hale pule a ʻo kekahi o koʻu mau lā mua nānā wau ma o ka hale pule a aia ʻo Mike a me Kathy. ʻAʻole wau i manaʻo he hanana wale ia.

Lawe ʻo Mike iaʻu ma lalo o kona ʻeheu a wehe i kona home iaʻu a me kaʻu mau keiki. Noho mākou i kekahi mau lā hoʻomaha me Mike, Kathy a me kā lāua (makua) mau keiki. ʻO kā mākou kamaʻilio ʻana ma ke kaʻaahi maikaʻi loa a me kekahi o nā mea hoʻomanaʻo aloha nui loa aʻu no Denver. Ua aloha ʻo Mike i kona ʻohana ma mua o nā mea āpau o ka honua. ʻAʻole pinepine ʻoe e ʻike i kahi kāne o kona kino kiʻekiʻe e haehae, akā ʻo kāu mea wale nō e hoʻomaka ai e kamaʻilio e pili ana i kona ʻohana.

Ma mua o kona ʻohana, he pilina koʻikoʻi ko Mike me Iesū Kristo. ʻAʻole ia he mea e kau ai i kona lima, akā ʻaʻole ia kahi mamao loa mai kahi kamaʻilio. ʻO Mike kekahi o kēlā mau Kalikiano i mahalo nui i nā mea āpau i hāʻawi ʻia iā ia. Ua ʻike wau i ka hauʻoli a me ka hilinaʻi iā Mike āu e ʻike ʻole ai i nā mākua he nui, no ka nui o kona manaʻoʻiʻo a me kona ʻohana. ʻAʻole ʻo Mike i haʻi ʻōlelo, ua hoʻāʻo maoli ʻo ia e ola i kona ola e like me ka manaʻo āna e makemake ai ke Akua iā ia. Ua haʻi wale aku ʻo Mike i kona hauʻoli a me kona ʻike i kona aloha i ke Akua iā ʻoe. ʻAʻole ia he pana, ʻaʻole hoʻokolokolo.

Ua loaʻa iaʻu kahi leka mai Kathy, ka wahine a Mike, i kēia pō i haʻi mai ua hala ʻo ia i kāna hiamoe. Kahaha loa wau. Ua hoʻohoka wau no ka hoʻi ʻole ʻana e hoʻi e kipa iā Mike a ʻoi aku ka minamina no ka mea ʻaʻole wau i hoʻopili mau ma ke kelepona. E ʻike ʻo Kathy a me kona ʻohana he mea nui ia i koʻu ola. ʻAʻohe oʻu kānalua ua hoʻokau ke Akua iā Mike ma ke kaʻaahi like me kāna mau hana e kōkua ai iaʻu e ʻike i koʻu ala.

Mahalo mau loa wau no Mike, ke aloha o kona ʻohana, a me nā hoʻomanaʻo kupaianaha a lākou i hāʻawi mai ai iaʻu a me koʻu ʻohana. Na ke Akua e hoʻopōmaikaʻi iā ʻoe, e Mike. Moe i ka maluhia. ʻIke mākou home ʻoe.
