    Dear Meghan, Your expertise was such a blessing during the trying time of our Mom, Matsue Kaneshiro's passing. Within an hour's time, you had coordinated Mom's service and it went perfectly. The entire upstairs staff is to be commended also as they were so accommodating. Mom had a beautiful family service, thanks to you. And the blue velvet covered chairs just added an elegant touch! You are indeed an asset to the firm with your knowledge and warm personality. Mahalo with our heartfelt gratitude.

    The kindest hearts expect no reward and deserve it all the more. You give so much of yourself in the kindness you show and the lives you touch. That's why you deserve a heartfelt "thank you" and a wish that all the goodness you share comes back to you. Much mahalo's for all you have done. Love & Aloha,

    Dear Kathy and Tony, I wanted to thank you both so much for your assistance when my mother Peggy passed away. After a long bout with dementia. It was sad to see a bright and independent woman with many talents lose so much. Your kindness and efficiency really made such a difference in a stressful time. Please know that you are both appreciated. Aloha,

    Dear Meghan, We want to thank you for all your care & kindness following the death of my sister Sandra Heim. You helped us during a devastating time and made it possible for us to bring Sandy home with us. The phone calls, your availability, help with the ME, holding a small ceremony and the cremation on such a short schedule allowed us to get home to our family and grieve together. Thank you again,

    Some people give because they think they have to - for them, it's just the proper thing to do. But when you give, I always know it comes right from your heart. I'm thankful for your thoughtfulness and you......Thank you all for your compassionate services given during our bereavement. Especially to Tony, John and Justyne, who catered us at the luncheon after the burial services. John showed so much caring with his personal given throughout the proceeding. We have been so taken, and now promote Nakamura Mortuary to all we who inquire and the "extras" that were given. --Thank You & God Bless

    I would like to share my Nakamura experience, should it provide any help to those who may need to find some insight or comfort. Losing a loved one, regardless of the circumstance is devastating. I have had this experience twice in a short time, both my husband of almost 35 years, and my only child and last living family member. My husband died in Canada, my child, (37 years of age) in Maui. I was in disbelief when I received the call from the Maui police department that I lost my only child, and last living relative. Friends of my son suggested I contact Nakamura for his "journey home". Weary having flown, Bangkok, to Hong Kong, to Vanocuver, then Maui, (4 days non stop) I arrived, wondering what would await me, having done this before. Allow me to say more surprise. I was greeted by the most kind, and truly sincere team who genuinely cared about what I truly desired, and a team who cared about me, as a person, not my money, or what they could sell me. They cared about my friend who had accompnied me, to help with the numerous things that needed to be taken care of. I returned many times, even after the details and my son's event was complete, and Elizabeth took time on a weekend to assist me, on her day off, with respect, true sincerity, while her team sent us off with "thank you for allowing us to be here and care for your son. Nakamura's team radiated a spirit of understanding, sincerity, love, and for lack of a better explanation a friendship that will stay with me forever. My son was brought to a "family" that took him into their loving hands and arms to help me carry him home. No one wants to go to a funeral home, ever. If your day requires you to meet with a team to assist you in this journey, I cannot think of anyone better suited to assist in such a journey. Thank you to everyone at Nakamura for making this journey and experience such a kind loving time.

  • Dearest Nakamura Mortuary, We would like to thank all of you for the help and support in arranging our father’s services. A special thanks to Kathy for helping to bring our father back from the Philippines; Elizabeth for arranging the services; Divina and all the men for helping during refreshments and lunch to make sure all our guests were taken care of. Also, thanks to the gentleman (sorry we forgot his name) that helped us at Maria Lanakila (Church) all the way to burial services at Maui Memorial Park. Without all of you, we couldn’t have made our father’s last wishes possible. The quality of service you all provide made it easy for our entire family during our time of bereavement. Our deepest appreciation,

    The A. Family
  • Thank you so much for your support and kindness. Your help with the process was very helpful and appreciated.

  • To the Staff of Nakamura Mortuary, Words cannot explain the gratitude we have for your professionalism, thoughtfulness, sincerity, kindness, oh- the list can go on and on and on! From the moment David and Craig came to MMMC for E., to meeting Connie and Kathy at the office, Chris and Veronica (and Craig) at the chapel- WOW! Chris, the poem was PERFECT! God’s presence was felt by all. Thanks very much to all of you. God bless you always, and may His son, Jesus Christ, live in your hearts forever. With Love, Prayers, and Thanksgiving,

    L.K. and family
