May You Find Your Way In Peace

It is with a great & heavy sadness that I mourn the passing of friend & inspirator of many years.

Charles Ka'upu, Jr. - Hawaiian Chanter, Kumu To All, World Traveler, Kolohe Kane died here on Maui early this morning, shortly after returning from Japan & Okinawa. He was 53.

I am speechless... as, I'm sure, are all whom he touched along his way. His loss is sudden, unexpected. A great man in heart, in stature... possessing a voice that shook both heaven & earth, Charles' departure leaves a void. 

Aloha Friend.
