Imua, Ikaika

We were friends who rode the waves
Time we spent in our younger days
Was all in fun, Oh the good times that we had.
We were young and it was fine
To feel your spirit as it climbs
There's no regrets, only good times.
We were friends in younger days
Although we went our separate ways
You were my friend, you never turned away

Who can say what life will do,
Life is kind to just a few
There's no regrets, only good times.
In time we will grow, we will change
As free as the wind and the waves
Live your life the way you choose
Find the ones who laughed with you
Like the sea, will find it's way to shore
As the sun sinks from the sky
Live your life and you will find
Theres no regrets, only good times

Only good times

Jeffrey Robert Scott "Ikaika" Long - Beautiful Soul

Riding the waves forever.

My heart aches for you, for your son, and for Ikaika's family.

Rebecca..thank you. We will work through it, all of us, together. Jeff would never want us to be sad for too long. He's already cloud-surfing! :)

Wes..I can't take credit. It belongs to the Beamers (from Big Wednesday). Always been one of my favorite songs, but I never really thought it applied in my life until now. It embodies Jeff, Juice, & The Grommet's lives to a tee. Friends who rode the waves. Hard to believe we won't see that brilliant smile and shaka (until later), but I feel his spirit right here with us. Always. Love ya back.

They are never gone, so long as we remember them—but it still hurts when they go. I'm so sorry, hon.

Thank you Jeffy. You know, Charlie and I were saying that one day, we'll probably have a grandson named Jeff. He'll be in such great company. :)
