“Lei Some Love” For Zephy

Zephaniah Keiko Gosin lived a mighty life from 8/30/2016 – 9/20/2017 full of trials and triumphs.  It brings us great relief to our hearts knowing she is free from all pain and future suffering.  I imagine she’s smiling and dancing up in heaven.  We can’t wait to meet her there where she will be able…

Hawaii Countdown: 2 days- The Scramble
