  1. It is hard to accept the fact that your are truly gone, i get called ninja and stuff i miss being able to talk to you. I miss you so much! R.I.P Mom, 🙁 I love you

  2. I was saddened to hear of this awesome person’s passing. When I first met Kanani, the first thing I had trouble with was pronouncing her name but, after the years of being aprt of her family, I learned more about her than just how to pronounce her name. I learned that she was actually a really “hip” person. She was always smiling and laughing. And I think that’s what I am gonna miss the most. Condolences to her family and friends for the loss of this awesome soul.

  3. I am going to miss you more than anything. My life will never be the same and chasing wont be near as enjoyable without my Rabbit sitting beside me trying to get me to core punch. But I know you will be with me keeping me safe. I love you Kanani. Glad you arent hurting anymore.
