“I was looking for a plot for myself, so my kids wouldn’t be burdened with that. I told my dad I was thinking about Makawao Cemetery. It’s beautiful, well-kept, and it’s upcountry, where I’ve lived all my life. My dad said, ‘Nice sentiment, but that’s for important people.’ Well, the Cemetery superintendent came to the house with all the paperwork, and I picked a plot next to a yellow lehua tree.”
