This post goes out, along with my heart, to my favorite Bishop and next door neighbor of 10 years in Hawaii, Ernie Reid.
I am sitting here in stunned silence, with tears sliding down my cheeks, after receiving word that he passed away last night. I don't even know the hows or whys. Alls I know is that I lubbed him so much.
He helped me through a really tough time in my life. And then I had the honor of serving under him as Relief Society President. He taught me much about serving with mercy and grace and compassion as I watched him constantly govern with the spirit of the law.
Oh, Bishop, MUCH MAHALO to you and Ena for everything. We will all miss you something fierce.
Aloha Oe . . . and safe passage . . .
Until we meet again.
A moment of silence and a group hug for all my Hawaii peeps!
