a fisherman's story

I was walking along a Maui beach when I found a memorial stone benieth this tree for Russell Matsuo Nakahashi 1961-2005. The inscription says that Russell was a fisherman. I don’t know his story, but it must have been a story of love and either friends or family because the stone was covered with beads, fresh flowers and unopened bottles of beer. It is not just the sea and this lonely tree that remembers Nakahashi.
