Hawaii Aloha and Aloha Oe

What a beautiful Sunday!  It has been bitter sweet actually. We will  be going home on Tuesday and we are anxious to see our family.  At the same time we are torn leaving our friends and family here in Kekaha.  Today in church at the close of the meeting the Bishop called us up to the front of the chapel and the congregation sang to us.  It is the custom when people are leaving to sing "Aloha Oe" but they chose to sing our favorite "Hawaii Aloha" also.  Oh my, there wasn't a dry eye anywhere in the room.  We cried and cried because we have come to love these wonderful people as our own family.  Even after all the beautiful lei's from Friday night they brought us more and more today as well as  gifts from the heart.  How can we ever leave and be the same?  Our hearts will be here forever.  They have truly left footprints on our hearts.
