    Default Uncle Rod visiting HNL Mar 2nd to the 7th, Father-in-Law's Funeral

    my father-in-law lived to see his 98th birthday and
    quietly passed away after most of the family had the
    opportunity to visit with him a few weeks before he died.
    All of the grandchildren were able to make the trip. and
    Grandpa was lucid and cogent enough to recognize and
    enjoy them! Praise the LORD!

    I will be attending and possibly performing at the Funeral
    on Sat Mar 3rd. It is supposed to be a celebration of life!

    I will endeavor to visit the lei-making Aunties at the Makai
    Food Court at the Ala Moana Shopping Center (Diamond
    Head end, near Cinnabon). If you are there, text me at
    (206-234-6972) I hope we can meet

    LORD willing, I hope to return this Summer for the Ukulele
    Festival at Kapiolani Park in mid July. If you are planning
    on attending, let me know and I will explain how you can
    actually perform (with 200 of your closest friends) and
    earn a Participant's Gold Medallion!! email me at
    ( rohiguchi@seattleschools.org ).

    last thing, Choirguy has created some wonderful videos of
    the Ukulele Boot Camp Practice Sheets. Search YouTube
    for 'ukulele boot camp' and you should find them. They (5
    of them) have a similar appearance and will cover the 5 Keys
    of the Practice Sheets (C, F, G, A ,D).

    let's thank Choirguy for putting these together!

    keep uke'in',

    Sorry to hear about your father-in-law, Rod, but it sounds like his passing was easeful.

    Thanks for the kind thoughts Greenie

    rlbccb, I'm so glad to hear of someone using what Choirguy created for Ukulele Boot Camp users.
    Don't you think Choirguy did a great job?

    I'm so glad he reached out and offered his expertise and efforts to create the videos!

    Mahalo, Choirguy!!

    I ran across reference to your ukulele boot camp when I started with the Uke about 10 months ago. I have used the exercises off and on since then. Choirguy took it to another level for me. It also showed me the importance of a metronome. The exercises are really helping with my muscle memory and speed gains.

    OK folks, time to close this one down

    the Memorial Service for my Father-in-law went very nicely.
    many friends and family showed up, some coming from a distance,
    like Georgia, Arizona, Washington, etc.

    I led some singing at the start - Smile, Pennies from Heaven, and
    What a Wonderful World. He used to sing some of these old favorites
    to his family.

    I also played and sang at the placing of the urn - Aloha Oe and Hawai'i
    Aloha.

    I also visited and sang with the lei-making Aunties at the Makai Food
    Court at the Ala Moana Center. One day, I sang and played for 6 hours!

    Thanks for your prayers and good vibes

    keep uke'in',
