  1. My Tutu Man was a strong, talented and heroic being. He will be greatly missed. I love you and I can’t wait to meet you again.

  2. He gave me Hawaii, as I could never have it as a mainlander. He always weaved rich stories of past and present Hawaii that were so rich in culture. He is now, and has always been, my story of Hawaii (I even took him to show and tell in 1st grade to show the kids what a true Hawaiian was). He breathed Hawaii and enabled me to breath Hawaii too. Thank you for giving me my history. I love you Tutu Man and will always carry you in my heart.

  3. DEAR MARTHA, ED, LARRY, SHARON AND ALL THE FAMILIES, OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHY IN THE PASSING OF ED. YOU HAVE OUR LOVE AND OUR PRAYERS. GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU AND GOD KEEP YOU FOR ALL TIME.

  4. Aloha, I’m Chelsea, daughter of Marilyn Akau. She’s the daughter of George (Uncle Umba’s brother). My mother sends her condolences also. We’re sorry for the lost of uncle. He will be dearly missed. I know that he has had a great and fulfilled life. Sorry we’re not able to attend the funeral, but our thoughts and prayers are with him and our ohana. God bless.

  5. I wish to convey my sincere condolences to the Akau family for the passing of Mr. Edward Kalokomaika Akau. Although I did not really get to know Mr. Akau, as I only remember meeting him a couple of times when I was around 5 to 10 years old, I do know how much he meant to Martha and Sharon whom I got to know through my mother working at Hadley’s Bakery in Aina Haina with Martha for many years and myself working at Kahala Hilton with Sharon. And later, having the pleasure of meeting Sharon’s husband, Jeffery Fox. The online video tribute to Mr. Akau was very nice. I could see that he was a happy, strong and handsome young man living in the beautiful days of Hawaii. Warmest Aloha, Rodney Kawamoto
