TO: Hugh, Trevor, Eric, and Troy and their Families We are sending our deepest sympathies to you all. We have many fond memories of shared dinners out at local restaurants and at one another's homes when Jackie & Hugh were our neighbors here in Kona....good food, great conversation and lots of laughter. I, Diane, remember joining Jackie on a few of her garage sale adventures at which she would delight in a great find. Hugh, I am thinking of the adult tricycle she bought Rest in Aloha, Jackie Aloha Nui Loa Diane & Ollie Garber
