    I was one of the fortunately ones who met Mr. Masini. For a man who was financially rich and powerful, he always made it a point to remember every person's name that he met. It could be the busboy or a doctor's assistant. He always treat everyone equally (regardless of their financially standing) and with respect. What a very caring man! He will be missed.

    Aloha Kakou–until we meet again. Aloha
