This is my family on my father's side...the Mira side. My grandparents lived in Kekaha and owned a candy store in Kekaha, "Mira's Sweet Shop". So we decided our 1st family reunion should rightly be held in Kekaha. Family came from Arizona, California, Oregon, Montana, Oahu, Maui, Kauai.....but none from Kekaha. There are no Miras in Kekaha anymore.
There was much laughter, talking story, reminiscing, music....actually lots of music. My sons and their other 8 first cousins were reunited after 24 yrs. That is too much time in between.
Two weeks later, one of the cousins in the picture above would suddenly pass away. He was not even 50 years old. What a blessing that we had all been together at such a happy occasion.
We need to get together more often...
