Beach Walk 65 – Joanie, A Hui Hou

A quiet show as we say good-bye to our beloved friend, Joanie.

h3. About Today’s Show

Here in Hawai’i many people choose to be cremated and have the ashes scattered at sea. The Mooney family graciously share with us their funeral for wife, mom, grandma, and friend, Joanie.

Hawaiian words
Ä€ hui hou: til we meet again
Hoaloha: beloved companion, friend

Be in Touch!


  1. Tears here in Santa Fe and I didn’t even know Joanie.

    Wonderful job, Rox.

    Roxanne, I am so glad I met you that day on Kailua beach. I have to think that our meeting was not by chance. Thank you for filming mom’s beautiful sendoff. Now that I am back at work in Denver, I have a way that I can re-visit her when I’m in the middle of my day, when I am missing her. Your blog also has given me an opportunity to share the beauty of Hawaii, which mom loved, with friends who have never been to Hawaii. I have to thank Lexie too!! Thank you!!!

  3. I agree our “chance” meeting (see show #63) Cathy was all part of the plan. It was a beautiful morning for Joan’s sendoff and I am very grateful you and your family were willing to share your private moments with the rest of us around the world. Me ke aloha pumehana, Rox

    What a wonderful way to share this special moment with us, Joannie’s grade school mates. Who would have thought that the last time we would see her was when we all got together. Friends forever.
