  1. Rest in love, I pray for the ohana.
    I hope they find the wahine soon.
    Theres too many hikers going missing & being found dead on maui. Maybe its time to try to restrict public access for hiking/recreation.

  2. Sounds like another stupid way to die falling off a waterfall thinning the herd I guess not everyone has common sense ……

  3. Craig was a close friend to me and for all the people who are saying how stupid he was he lived a life many dreamed of. He traveled the world living the life he wanted. When we lived together he walked in one day and said he's going to Spain to run with the bulls. No major planning or anything. Just a goal. The way we plan to go to Wal-Mart to shop was the way he planned to travel the world. He's been to so many places all of his friends lost track of the number long ago. You would see him at a house party then 2 days later checking into Thailand. You will truly be missed man.
