Today’s post will somewhat lack the smart aleck, wisecracking, humor filled, slightly malicious tone you guys have come to expect from me. I hope you forgive me, but it has been a very emotional & draining week for the family. However! This post is not a pity party, nor is it a memorial to those who have passed. No, today I just want to say thank you.

For those that follow the various members of the Kawakami family, you know that two very special people passed away this week. And while this has been a very trying time for us, we have been blessed at all the outpouring of support, condolences, and aloha from all of you. From family members, to fans of ManoaDNA & IOLANI, to friends and acquaintances, we are so humbled by all of the emails, texts, phone calls and online comments that you all have posted. We are so lucky to have all of you in our lives, and thank you all for the support.

TeaMDNA! MAHALO!
Nick
