022123: Vanikapila 5.23

Aloha UFOhana,

I have some sad new to pass onto you.

One of our senior Ukulele Pilots, Clay Wilson, has answered the call from Akua (his higher power) today at 1:30pm and joined our other UFOhana members i ka Lani (in heaven).

Mahalo Nui Loa Clay for 20 years of great Kanikapilas with us and for sharing your wonderful sweet pa’ani’s. “Hawai’i Aloha” will be bitter sweet without your pa’ani next to mine . . .

Please send your Aloha and healing Mana to Mary Wilson and the Wilson ‘Ohana during this difficult time.

Me ke Aloha Pumehana,

Kaleikoa a Nohea a Jake

  1. I’m glad we got a chance to play with Clay at the Women’s club recently and dedicate a few tunes to him last weekend. Sad to see him go.
